Aiming to restore your body’s function through manual medicine.
What is Osteopathy?
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 muscular skeletal system works as one holistic unit, in conjunction with the body’s nervous system, its circulation, connective tissue network and internal organs.
Using skilled diagnostic tools, osteopaths are able to identify important types of dysfunction in the body. Once completing a thorough diagnostic evaluation, osteopaths are able to treat the dysfunctions found with a wide range of hands-on techniques, and where appropriate advise the patient on nutrition, posture and rehabilitation exercises.
Osteopaths can successfully treat and manage:
Neck and back pain
Sports or workplace injuries
Headaches and migraines
TMJ (jaw pain)
Disc injury or nerve pain
Repetitive strain injury
Pre-natal and Post-natal care
Joint strain and injury
