What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment suitable for a wide range of medical conditions.  Osteopathy works with the structure and function of the body. It is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the integration of all the working parts.  It is wholly natural and there are no pain killers involved. Our osteopaths work to reduce pain and get to its source quickly.

Our methods of treatment include gentle physical manipulation, stretching and techniques to increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension and enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues. This helps the body’s own healing mechanisms.  Our osteopaths also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.

An osteopath is a person who specialises in the treatment of biomechanical injuries.  This might include injuries relating to lower back pain, neck pain or sports related injuries.  It’s also suitable for children who respond well to the very gentle methods of cranial osteopathy as well as treatment during pregnancy.
