Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions. The principles are based around treating the body as a whole, and appreciating that the body can heal itself through the proper alignment and balance of the joints, muscles, connective tissues, nerves and organs.
Osteopaths focus on the whole body – and through skilled evaluation, diagnosis, and a wide range of techniques for treatment of the soft tissues along with mobilisation of specific joints, they can treat and manage a big range of conditions including:
- Neck and back pain
- Postural dysfunctions
- Arthritis and Joint pain
- Repetitive Strain and overuse injuries
- Sports injuries
- Pregnancy related discomfort
