WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
Osteopathy is a unique “hands-on” approach for the diagnosis and treatment of all kinds of pain, discomfort and immobility.
Osteopaths apply the philosophy of treating the “whole person”. It is a form of manual healthcare which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way if functions.
The key principles are based on all systems of the body functioning together as an integrated unit. If one part of the body is restricted, then the rest of the body must adapt and compensate for this, eventually leading to inflammation, pain, stiffness and other health conditions.
Treatment focuses on the musculoskeletal system. Osteopathic treatment assists the body by providing increased mobility and correcting functional dysfunctions, allowing the body the opportunity to heal itself and aiming to prevent the problem from recurring.
