What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and manual treatment which, by correcting joint and tissue abnormalities to restore physical and emotional well being, makes it easier for a person’s body to function normally and use its own recuperative powers more effectively. 


Osteopaths look at and treat the body as a whole, therefore aiming to address the causes of the problem and not just the presenting pain.

Osteopaths work under the principle that there may be a number of contributing factors to the symptoms and will therefore evaluate not only the area which is producing the symptoms, but also any associated areas that may be contributing to the issue. they will also look at past trauma, environmental factors and the family’s health history.

Osteopaths adapt their therapeutic approach depending on the individual needs of the patient and their presenting complaint.
