What is Osteopathy?

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. We use a range of techniques such as soft tissue, stretching, mobilisation, manipulation and rehabilitation exercises to rebalance the body.

Osteopaths do not simply concentrate on treating a problem area but use manual techniques to balance all the systems of the body to provide overall good health and wellbeing.

Osteopaths also focus on injury prevention. Early intervention by an Osteopath means you can be aware of potential sources of referred pain and how you can make changes to your exercise program and lifestyle so you won’t have to deal with the pain later on.
