If you’ve ever suffered from an injury or accident, you know how painful and debilitating it can be. Fortunately, there are many natural therapies that can help you recover and get back to your normal activities, and osteopathy is one of them.

At Top Notch, our osteopaths use a hands-on approach to treat the body naturally. We start by taking a detailed consultation to understand what has occurred, and how long it has been affecting you. We’re interested in finding out what helps and what doesn’t, so we can provide the best possible treatment plan.

What do expect during your osteopathy session

If you’ve suffered an injury, such as James, who hurt his knee during a crossfit workout, you can expect our osteopaths to take the time to understand your situation fully. We’ll assess your injury and provide advice on what we can do to help, and what the recovery time might look like. We’ll even raise an ACC form on your behalf, so you don’t need to see your GP.

Our priority is to ensure that you receive the right treatment to get you back on your feet as soon as possible. We use soft-tissue massage around the affected area to decrease tension and inflammation, as well as a series of stretches and manipulations to help improve mobility and reduce pain.

The importance of early treatment

Early treatment is key to a speedy recovery, and that’s why it’s so important to see one of our osteopaths as soon as possible after an injury or accident. In James’ case, he was worried about missing an upcoming competition, but after a few treatments with us, he was able to compete with reduced pain and a much stronger knee.

Our holistic approach takes into account the connections between different parts of the body, such as the knee, hips, and lower back. We also consider any previous injuries and create a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs.
