What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is an established, recognized system of diagnosis and treatment that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system (bones, muscles, joints, ligaments etc.) in the healthy functioning of the body.
Osteopathy utilizes many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis. Its main strength lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint, and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of the individual patient. The fundamental aim of Osteopathic treatment is to manage the presenting symptoms, and also to establish and address any underlying causes.
