What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a recognised primary health care system that is used worldwide to complement mainstream and alternative medicine. It is an established and recognised system of diagnosis and treatment that aims to overcome pain, immobility and disease that result from the dysfunction of the body’s structures, working gently on the body to enhance its natural resources to optimise health, alignment and movement of energy.

What does an Osteopath do?

Osteopaths are trained to diagnose and treat conditions ranging from long-standing chronic injuries to the more short-term acutely painful injuries. Osteopaths employ a broad range of traditional and more modern techniques to help enhance your health and restore vitality for the body and mind.

An osteopathic treatment includes a range of gentle manipulation, soft tissue or massage, joint articulation and muscle relaxation techniques which, when applied to the body, can ease pain, reduce swelling and muscle spasm and improve joint mobility. Each treatment is individually tailored according to the practitioners findings and the patients needs.

A Holistic Approach

As the osteopath takes an interest in the patients way of life, work and other activities, advice may be given on how to modify lifestyle to prevent further problems. In addition, rehabilitation exercises and lifestyle advice for the patient to follow at home may be suggested to involve the patient in the healing process.
