What is Osteopathy?

Neck manipulatioonWhat is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy was developed in the 1870’s by Andrew Taylor Still. It is a unique, safe and effective system of treatment that looks at the whole person and works with the natural healing system of the body through manipulation of the bones, ligaments, joints and muscles surrounding the spine.

Osteopathy lays importance on the structural and mechanical problems of the body, by working on the principle that; if your body is structurally sound then it will function at its optimum.

Whilst symptoms can be used to identify the cause of the pain, Osteopaths treat the problem not just symptoms to prevent recurrence of the pain. Using this natural approach to health, osteopaths are skilled in treating a wide range of muscular and skeletal-related pains and give relief from their symptoms.

Back painOsteopaths use a hands-on approach in the assessment and treatment of musculo-skeletal problems. Patients are assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint and this enables the osteopath to recognise when a joint, muscle or connective tissue is the cause of pain. They will then treat those structures as appropriate.

Osteopathy is recognized by the British Medical Association and in 1993 became the first complementary health care profession to be accorded statutory recognition.
