Osteopathy offers diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of problems associated with disturbances of the body’s framework, whether they be due to injury, stress or other causes.
Alison Allott is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and has been practising for over thirty years since she qualified from The British School of Osteopathy in 1983.
She initially practised for seven years in South East England before moving to Shrewsbury, Shropshire and started her own practice in 1990.
The osteopath makes a careful assessment of joint mobility by touch and observation, together with an examination of the surrounding muscles. The osteopath then attempts to resolve mechanical problems that hinder the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Treatment involves passive movements and mobilization of joints, as well as soft tissue massage, with the aim of restoring the mobility and function of stiff joints. The osteopath attempts to look at the body framework as a whole, as sometimes stresses in areas remote from the symptoms are causing the problem.
