Osteopathy is a manual medicine. It is based on the premise that the body is an integrated unit and that well-being depends on the individual parts working smoothly together
Osteopaths are able to treat reversible mechanical injury in the musculoskeletal system and correct a range of restricted mobility in other systems.
Osteopathy takes not only physical symptoms into account, but looks at a patient globally – their lifestyle, habits and general state of health.
Osteopaths use their hands to detect disruptions and relieve areas of physical tension that can lead to functional problems. Treatment consists of gentle physical manipulation through very precise osteopathic techniques.
