What Is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a treatment of the musculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, nerves, blood supply and other connective tissues. Its aim is to consider the whole body and how that relates to the pain or discomfort with which a patient may present.

To function at its best a body needs harmony and fluidity and an osteopath is trained to locate the areas that may limit this expression. This may be a result of postural imbalances, poor workstations, illness, injuries, stress, wear and tear or limiting beliefs.

 

An osteopath will try to locate the cause of the complaint and then treat it to alleviate the pain or discomfort. This is done using a variety of techniques, massage, stretching, articulation, joint manipulation or a cranial sacral approach. All with the aim of relieving muscle tension and improving balance which will enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues and help your body’s own healing mechanisms. Advice on posture and exercise will be provided to help aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms from recurring.
