What is Osteopathy?
To an osteopath, for your body to work well its structure must also do the same. And with that basic premise in mind, osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible eliminating the use of medication or invasive procedures.
Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms.
Just as importantly, they also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid your recovery, promoting better health and preventing symptoms recurring.
