. Aylesford Surgery Osteopaths is a private osteopathy clinic operating within an NHS GP surgery. Aylesford Surgery Osteopaths see a broad variety of patients in the clinic, from all social backgrounds, and from a wide geographical area. OSTEOPATHY. Osteopathy is a distinct approach to healthcare based on a well established system of clinical diagnosis. Osteopaths focus on the structure and function of the body, using safe, manual treatment which offers a caring approach to the individual needs of each patient – at all stages of life from birth to old age. Osteopathy is not used to just treat back pain but can help with a variety of neuro- musculo-skeletal conditions. The clinic deals with acute as well as chronic conditions but prides itself on progressing the management through to cover maintenance and preventative care. Osteopathy can help provide relief for the body’s structural, mechanical and functional problems in people of all ages helping to relieve patients from different types of pain and stiffness. Here are just a few examples: Low back pain Neck pain Mid back pain Sciatica Whiplash injuries Frozen shoulder Headaches Arthritis pain TREATMENT. Treatment at Aylesford Surgery Osteopaths involves encouraging the "stiff" areas of the body to begin moving again, and comprisesof soft tissue massage, gentle mobilisation movements we call articulation, and firmer carefully controlled movements we call high velocity low amplitude thrusts – HVLA’s which stretch the stiff part often accompanied by a series of "clicks" or "pops". There are two stages to osteopathic care 1. Initial pain relief in the acute stage. 2. Maintenance treatment to maintain the current state of the condition, or preventative treatment to prevent the build up of stiffness, which often leads to acute flair-ups. Maintainance treatment is not required for all patients but is recommended to those with degenerative conditions or those with long term maintaining factors to their condition, such as people with physical or sedentary jobs.
