What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment which specialises in the management and care of structural and mechanical problems of the body.

Osteopathy emphasises the need to treat the whole person in order to fully correct problems of the muskuloskeletal system (body frame) making it easier for the the body to return to normal function and allow the person to return to full health and thus reducing the chance of problems occurring in the future.

How does Osteopathy work

Registered Osteopaths have extensive four year training, including Anatomy Physiology Medicine and Pathology of the human body. They also have 2,000 hours of clinical training in diagnosis and the treatment of patients. Using a variety of clinical skills backed up where necessary by x-ray examinations the Osteopath comes to a diagnosis and a treatment plan is designed to correct that patient’s problem.

Osteopathic treatment is gentle and rarely causes pain. It will often involve advice to the patient on how they can help themselves, including by the use of exercises where appropriate, to help prevent similar problems occurring in the future.
