Osteopathy is a non-invasive, drug free and holistic form of manual therapy which was founded in 1892. The holistic nature of Osteopathy makes it a unique way of coming to a diagnosis and providing treatment via massage, stretching, manipulation, muscle energy techniques (MET) and exercise prescription. Our Osteopaths pride themselves on restoring optimal physical function and reducing body imbalances through their treatment alone or with an adjunct referral to our “Clinical Exercise” classes.
Common improvements with Osteopathic treatment are; reduced pain, reduced muscle tension, improved mobility, improved circulatory performance and patient education.
With a holistic approach to your health, our Osteopaths can improve your pain, function and guide you to preventing further illness and injuries.
WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
The Benefits of Osteopathy
Osteopaths use a variety of techniques to assess and treat the body, including stretching, massage, and manipulation of the joints. By identifying and treating the underlying cause of the pain, osteopaths can provide relief from a wide range of conditions, including muscle and joint pain, headaches and digestive issues. In addition to providing relief from pain, osteopathy can also improve mobility, increase energy levels, improve sleep, and promote overall wellbeing.
Osteopathy is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on the relationship between the structure and function of the body. This approach recognises that the body has an innate ability to heal itself, and that osteopathic treatment can help facilitate this process. Osteopaths look at the body as a whole, using a variety of techniques to improve function and reduce pain. Treatment is tailored to each individual, and may focus on relieving pain, improving mobility, and promoting overall health and well-being.
