Osteopathy is a safe natural form of skilled manual therapy. It uses a system of examination, diagnosis and treatment of the bodies musculoskeletal system.
The body functions as a complete working system. Any problems that affect the body’s structure will upset the balance of our general health. Therefore, treatment concentrates on the relationship between the structure of the body such as the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue and the way in which the body moves and functions.
By restoring the body’s balance, Osteopaths are able to provide immediate and long term relief from pain.
Osteopaths use a range of hands-on techniques such as pressure, massage, stretching, and manipulation to correct imbalances in the body’s musculoskeletal structure. This helps the body return to normal function.
