What is Osteopathy ?

Osteopathy is a hands-on EVIDENCE BASED approach to healthcare, recognising the important link between the structures of your body & the way it functions.

An osteopath uses anatomical and physiological knowledge, along with skilled clinical evaluation to assess and diagnose the source of pain. They look at the whole body for the causes of injury, as well as barriers to recovery.

Osteopaths use a wide range of techniques to improve the relationship between joints, muscles, nerves and circulation to restore full function to the body.
