What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is defined by the General Osteopathic Council as a manner of detecting, treating and preventing conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system – muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints – in a holistic and scientific way.
Osteopaths take an evidence-based holistic and life-span approach to diagnosis and rehabilitation. They aim to provide effective health care by promoting active recovery to enhance a person’s quality of life.
Gentle manipulative therapy aims to reduce pain while improving mobility, without the need of drugs or surgery. All treatment programmes include diet and exercise components.
Common conditions treated by an osteopath include:
- Back pain
- Chronic pain
- Sports and work-related injuries
