Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and manual therapy. It recognises the important link between body structure and function. Osteopathy is a drug free form of manual healthcare with a focus on the skeletal system and how it functions in conjunction with muscles, nerves, connective tissue, and internal organs as a holistic unit.

Using evaluation and diagnosis, osteopaths can identify types of dysfunction within the body and then implement a wide range of treatment techniques. These may include stretching, and massaging of soft tissue, and mobilisation of specific joints and tissue.

People go to osteopaths because they provide:

  • A 5-year university double degree in Osteopathic Medicine
  • Palpation skills to locate, identify and diagnose
  • A wide range of manual skills
  • Long appointment sessions
  • Low force techniques
