What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy is an approach to health which looks at the whole person to form a diagnosis. It tailors a personalised health improvement plan specific to you, by understanding your individual history, circumstances and unique physiology.

Osteopaths use manual therapy, health advice and exercise prescription, tailored to the needs of the individual to provide safe, effective treatment and care with the aim of promoting the health of the individual.

Osteopathy is safe for the very young to the very old, sporty or inactive. Manual therapy includes hands on techniques designed to release tension, increase mobility and improve function.

Osteopaths are highly trained healthcare professionals; experts in the musculoskeletal system (muscles, joints and soft tissues), and how they interact with the other bodily systems. Osteopaths can refer you to other healthcare professionals as required to ensure you receive the best care.
