Osteopath In Sudbury is embarking on a Developmental Psychology course!
As one friend honed their osteopathic technique on another the conversation took a potentially hostile turn. “I don’t know why you’re bothering”, he said, “Psychology is a load of old nonsense!” Osteopath-In-Sudbury continued. Thankfully his friend had a good sense of humour. She laughed. “Well that’s you’re opinion, and you’re duly entitled to air it Osteopath”. Three years on and Osteopath-In-Sudbury is controversially sure that he had muddled Psychology and Sociology. He is embarking on a journey to take him from Osteopath to Developmental Psychologist.
We are very proud to be able to offer a complete level of care at Friars Street Osteopathy. Our staff are highly trained, and experienced osteopaths with the skill to be able to diagnose, prescribe, and administer structural, visceral and cranial osteopathic treatment. Using these techniques we help your body recover from injury and ease pain. Your journey with us is then passed from Osteopath to Psychologist. Our in-house psychologist is able to investigate the likely causes behind the your pain, and together with our osteopath advise changes which should help to stop the same issues recurring. She is also happy to talk through stress factors and concerns as part of your treatment (please note that this is part of our standard service and included in the price. We are currently not offering this as a standalone service). Osteopath-In-Sudbury also enlists input from our psychologist to address and adapt our protocols and policies so that we can provide you with the most stress free, and progressive care possible.
Part of our psychologists scope includes exploration further back in your history (where appropriate), to look for things that have affected and contributed to your experience of pain. It is this element of psychology which has inspired Osteopath-In-Sudbury to embark on new and uncharted waters by undertaking a (long) Developmental Psychology course. We at Friars Street Osteopathy can see an immense value in being able to locate developmental points which may feed into later pain issues. And of course, this string to our osteopaths bow can only stand to further his skill set for treating our younger patients.
Of course, the main question on all of our minds over the months ahead, as he progresses from Osteopath to Psychologist, will be whether psychology is really a load of old nonsense or will Osteopath-In-Sudbury have to eat his words? Watch this space!
