Osteopathy is a gentle manual medicine that treats the human body as a single unit to restore health and function. The Osteopath who has in-depth knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology will address the cause of the dysfunction. Osteopathy treats all musculoskeletal complaints as well as visceral dysfunctions and systemic issues from the newborn to the elderly.
Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs functions as a holistic unit.
Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, Osteopaths can identify dysfunction in your body. Osteopathic treatment uses techniques such as stretching and massage for general treatment of the soft tissue (Muscle, Tendons, Ligaments) along with mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues.
Osteopaths can manage a range of conditions from the newborn to the elderly, including:
- Neck and back pain
- Joint pains
- Sciatic related issues
- Repetitive strain and overuse injuries
- Pregnancy-related discomfort
- Tendon strains
- Sports injuries and many other wide range of disorders.
