What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathic evaluation and treatment is based on viewing the body as a whole - i.e. how the integration of the bodyís structures (bones, joints, ligaments, discs, muscles, tendons and nerves) function with each other within the bodyís system. A breakdown of the normal working patterns of the body (unique to each person) causes these structures to dysfunction and become painful.

An osteopath assesses each patientís individual normal mechanical working pattern and by gentle manipulation of the bones and soft tissue structures, works to remove restrictions which may be impeding joint mobility, blood flow, nerve supply or muscular activity.

In doing this, dysfunction is reversed and pain alleviated.
