What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a healthcare profession that utiises a patient focused, physical approach to restoring, maintaining and promoting physical and psychosocial well being. Primarily treatments take the form of a manual therapy involving massage, mobilisation and spinal manipulation for the treatment of musculo-skeletal problems. Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment focussing on joints, muscles, ligaments, nerves and connective tissues and their relationship in well functioning body mechanics and posture. Osteopaths combine a detailed knowledge of human anatomy and function to identify not only the symptoms, but also the underlying causes of each problem.
