Cranial OsteopathyCranial Osteopathy at WeaverHouse Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment that encourages the release of stresses and tensions throughout the body, including the head. It is a gentle yet extremely effective approach and may be used in a wide range of conditions for people of all ages, from birth to old age. Cranial Osteopaths are trained to feel a very subtle, rhythmical shape change that is present in all body tissues. This is called Involuntary Motion or the Cranial Rhythm. The movement is of very small amplitude; therefore it takes practitioners with a very finely developed sense of touch to feel it. This rhythm was first described in the early 1900's by Dr. William G. Sutherland and its existence was confirmed in a series of laboratory tests in the 1960's and '70's. Tension in the body disrupts the cranial rhythm. Practitioners compare what your rhythm is doing to what they consider ideal. This shows them what stresses and strains your body is under at present, and what tensions it may be carrying as a result of its past history. It also gives them an insight into the overall condition of your body, for example if it is healthy, or stressed and tired. As with more well known forms of osteopathy, many symptoms respond well to treatment and the osteopath treats the person as a whole, not just the presenting problem. Cranial osteopathy is a popular choice of parents for babies and infants as well as senior patients where a less invasive approach is preferred. Contact WeaverHouse for more details about cranial osteopathy and whether it could be a suitable therapy choice for you.
ChiropodyPodiatry (formally known as Chiropody) is derived from the Greek words ‘podo’ meaning foot and ‘iatros’ meaning doctor. Podiatrists are responsible for the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of diseases, injuries and defects of the foot and lower limb. Podiatrists use a range of conventional medical assessment and diagnostic techniques within their practice. The treatments vary accordingly on the findings of the initial assessment and agreed management plan. Treatments for common conditions may include; General Podiatry For nails, hard skin and corns on the feet to reduce pain and improve mobility. Diabetic Foot care Diabetes can affect the circulation and sensation to the lower limb. In some cases this may lead to ulceration, infection or loss of limb if allowed to progress beyond control. Biomechanical Assessment This is an assessment of the lower limbs during the gait cycle (how we walk or run). We offer specialist advice when walking or running is uncomfortable or causes pain. This may include footwear recommendations or the provision of Orthoses/Insoles. Nail Surgery Nail surgery may be necessary for an ingrown toenail; this is a small operation where a local anaesthetic injection is required. A comprehensive assessment is made prior to surgery to ensure suitable risk management, with follow up care and dressings to promote wound healing, pain relief and resolution of the problem.
