Osteopathy – An introduction

Osteopathy is a primary health care technique and can complement other medical practices. It is suitable for most people regardless of age or ability and can contribute towards the treatment and management of a variety of conditions. Osteopaths primarily work through the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, mostly on muscle tissue and joints, using patient-centred approaches.

Osteopathic treatment doesn’t use medication and is also non-invasive but can have a powerful effect on your body. By simply helping to achieve a significantly better physical alignment the Osteopath will work to boost the central nervous system, lymphatic system, circulation of blood while maintaining joint and muscle health. Patients are treated with mobilisation, articulation and soft tissue techniques.
