osteo = bone myo = muscle ology = the science or study of.
So taken literally Osteomyology is simply the science or study of bone and muscle.
The Association of Osteomyologists is a growing, respected organization which believes that being qualified in a variety of techniques leads to multi-disciplined practitioners, who are therefore able to adapt treatments for different conditions and individual circumstances.
Within the Association, members have already qualified in their chosen field be it Osteopathy, Chiropractic, Physical therapy, in fact any one of a number of manual medical disciplines. Osteomyologists go further; they have continued to expand their knowledge and through the Association have studied other disciplines which they add to their portfolio.
In my case I use Theraflex, Muscle Energy Techniques and CranioSacral Therapy, together with advice on exercise to provide a holistic approach to treatment.
As an Osteomyologist I treat both the symptoms and the root cause of a condition, aiming to alleviate and prevent reoccurrence whenever possible, and as the body is treated as a whole, treatment for long-term and repetitive problems is particularly effective.
Where necessary, I will refer you to other professionals including my colleagues at The Complementary Medicine Centre or your GP or whoever I feel would be of benefit to you.
