Osteopathy is a unique holistic (whole body) approach to health care. Osteopaths do not simply concentrate on treating the problem area, we use hands on techniques to balance all the systems of the body, to provide overall good health and well being.

Osteopathy views the body as an integrated unit, where all systems are interconnected. Practitioners consider not only the symptoms but also the patient's overall health and well-being.
Osteopathic treatment involves hands-on techniques, such as soft tissue manipulation, stretching, and joint mobilization, to improve the function of muscles, bones, and joints. These techniques aim to enhance circulation, reduce pain, and promote the body's natural healing processes.
Diagnosis and Assessment:
Osteopaths use their hands to assess the musculoskeletal system, looking for areas of tension, restriction, or dysfunction. They may also consider the patient's medical history and perform physical examinations.
Treat a Wide Range of Conditions:
Osteopathy is used to treat various conditions, including back pain, neck pain, headaches, joint pain, and sports injuries. Osteopaths may also address issues related to posture, stress, and overall wellness.
Complementary to Conventional Medicine:
Osteopathy is often used as a complementary therapy alongside conventional medical treatments. DOs receive medical training similar to that of medical doctors (MDs) and can prescribe medications and perform surgery in addition to their osteopathic techniques.
Prevention and Wellness:
Osteopaths may also focus on preventing health issues and promoting wellness through lifestyle advice, exercise, and ergonomic recommendations.
