About Osteopathy...

Osteopathy is an established, recognized system of diagnosis and treatment which lays its main emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body.  It is distinctive in the fact that it recognizes that much of the pain and disability which we suffer stems from abnormalities in the function of the body`s structure as well as damage caused to it by disease.

[Description by the General Osteopathic Council, 28th October 1998]

Osteopathy is a statutorily regulated system of diagnosis and treatment that lays its foundations on the musculo-structural integrity of the body. It uses many diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis.

Its main strength however, lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of the individual patient.

Much of the physical pain and discomfort we suffer often arises from the misalignment or abnormality in this physical function of the body. Bad posture, excessive or improper use as well as diseases such as osteoarthritis can lead to such abnormalities or misalignment. Left untreated it could lead to long term or permanent damage.

  

Why not see if Osteopathy can help you achieve a better quality of life. The aim of Osteopathy is to correct problems in the body frame, making it easier for the body to function normally and reducing the chance of problems occurring in the future.

In seeking to maintain good health and prevent future problems.  The Osteopath`s plan may include advice on posture, diet, lifestyle and stress. While Osteopaths are perhaps best known to the general public as specialists in treating disorders of musculoskeletal system, Osteopathy is actually a complete (holistic) primary healthcare discipline not just for bad backs and stiff necks.

• Back and Neck pain
