What is Osteopathy?


Osteopathy is not just a series of techniques applied to the body but is a philosophy of health. This philosophy acknowledges that when in good health the body should automatically adapt to the different demands of life to maintain itself in a state of balance. This includes recovery from trauma. 


The natural resources of the body are not infinite and sometimes events occur that the body cannot correct without assistance. This is where Osteopathy can help. 


Osteopaths diagnose and treat structural stresses and strains that are interfering with your health. Osteopathy is not only beneficial for aches or pains in the musculoskeletal structures of the body, but it can also help a variety of different symptoms. Including:

  • Arthritic pain
  • Cervicogenic headaches
  • Circulatory problems
  • Cramp
  • Digestion problems
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Generalised aches and pains
  • Inability to relax
  • Hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis
  • Joint pains

  • Migraine prevention
  • Minor sports injuries and tensions
  • Muscle spasms
  • Neck pain
  • Neuralgia
