WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?

TREATING THE WHOLE BODY, NOT JUST THE SYMPTOM

Osteopathy is a well-established system of manual therapy designed to treat patients with a variety of physical symptoms. Osteopathy aims to clinically:

Detect
Diagnose
Treat
Rehabilitate

Osteopathic intervention combats a range of spinal, muscular, nerve, ligament and joint problems.

The osteopath uses a wide range of techniques to treat the patient depending on what is required. There is a clinical relationship between injuries in one site affecting another, for example hip pain can relate to knee symptoms and neck strain can cause headaches.
