The following wording has been prepared by , to describe the range of therapies offered by clients, in this case counselling and osteopathy. This wording is not the responsibility of the Adlerian Society, and is not endorsed by the Adlerian Society
websites are not exclusive to counselling, but also support therapists with training in other specialisms. Osteopathy is a complete medical system which puts primary emphasis on efficient and elegant movement. This may be used purely to treat bodily pain but has far-reaching implications for health and general well being. If pain is limiting your life then osteopathy may be the safe and gentle answer and is commonly used to treat back pain, sciatica, nerve pain, muscle aches and arthritic pain. Osteopathy can help all sorts of pain in all parts of the body and if an ongoing pain cycle is making it difficult for you to cope then osteopathy combined with counselling may be helpful.
Osteopathy may consist of gentle soft tissue stretching, rhythmic movement, and easing of passive joints, as well as traditional high velocity thrust techniques which may successfully treat sprains and strains, neuritis, migraine, menstrual disorders and digestive disturbances. You may be surprised how this treatment can increase the realignment of structural abnormalities and deviations. Babies may also benefit from this treatment as a safe way to treat colic, irritability, and poor sleep patterns.
Chiropratic has much in common with osteopathy, although the therapies start from a different fundamental basis. A chiropractor is a therapist concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal manipulation or adjustment which makes chiropractic suitable for poor posture, scoliosis, repetitive strain injuries, tennis elbow, shoulder problems, carpel tunnel syndrome, pins and needles as well as other conditions affecting the joints in the body.
