What is Osteopathy ?
Osteopathy is a primary health care system, complementary to other medical practices. It is a form of drug-free non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on the total body. Osteopaths do not simply concentrate on treating the problem area, but use manual techniques to help balance all the systems of the body to assist with over all good health and wellbeing. If one part of the body is restricted, then the rest of the body must adapt and compensate for this, potentially leading to inflammation, pain, stiffness and other health conditions.
By treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine, the aim is to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems leading to pain relief and wellbeing
