P1020098-webOsteopathy is a safe and gentle form of manual medicine which can be effective for the entire body.  Osteopaths commonly focus on the musculoskeletal system but also look at other areas of the body including the nervous system and endocrine / digestive systems

Osteopaths use gentle techniques such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation, stretching with and without resistance, myofascial release, biodynamics and cranial osteopathy to assist patients in achieving pain-free movement by correcting underlying dysfunction.

What sets Osteopathy apart from other forms of manual medicine is its principals:

  • The body is a unit.
  • The body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms, having the inherent capacity to defend, repair, and remodel itself.
  • Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.

In translation, the osteopathic belief is that by finding the cause of the pain, and treating this, the problem will be fixed and you will not need to come back time and time again.

An example of this is a patient who presents with knee pain.  Osteopaths not only examine the knee looking for the cause of the pain but also examine the foot, ankle, hip, pelvis and low back then treat appropriately.
