Osteopathy is a manual therapy based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual relies on the harmonious function between bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue.
Osteopaths use predominantly gentle spinal manipulation as well as stretching techniques to correct joint and muscle imbalances, allowing restoration of harmony within the patient’s body. The objective being the promotion of long-term health.
Patients may seek osteopathic care for a wide variety of conditions other than back pain such as:
– generalised aches and pains
– arthritic pain
– neck pain
– frozen shoulder
– minor sports injuries and tensions
