Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear andscreamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
Here at the Active Healthcare Clinic in Sheffield, we are regularly asked "what is osteopathy?" If you do have any questions following reading this, please don't hesitate to get in contact with us.Osteopathy is a gentle treatment that aims to relieve pain by moving, stretching and massaging a person's muscles and joints. Osteopaths believe that wellbeing depends on bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together in an integrated manner.
The building from which the centre operates dates from around 1870. It was a typical Victorian residence until the mid 1940s when Mrs Margaret Brougham started the first Osteopathic practice. In 1950,32 year-old Osteopath David Wainwright established the present practice with the help of his wife Elizabeth Joy. David enjoyed what he calls "more than 50 glorious years as an Osteopath" and devoted himself to continual patient care, providing an exemplary and outstanding service to his profession.
Osteopathy is an extremely effective, and gentle form of therapy that relieves pain by improving the function of the body as a whole. Osteopathic treatment involves the gentle manipulation of the bodyto bring relief and an improved quality of life for patients. Osteopaths recognise that many of the problems of the body may stem from structural or mechanical factors which can inhibit healthy functioning or worsen underlying conditions.
