Osteopathy is a way of detecting and treating injured parts of the body, using a variety of techniques tailored to each individual patient, where the injury involves damage or strain to muscle, ligaments, nerves or joints. Problems can occur when the balance between these individual components is compromised.
The osteopath's job is to diagnose and treat faults that occur in this mechanical system due to injury, stress, or any other cause and to ensure that it is functioning as efficiently as possible.
Osteopathy has now been recognised as a primary healthcare system, complementary to other medical practices. It is suitable for almost anyone and can contribute to alleviating an enormous range of conditions, by working through the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, each treatment carefully selected by the osteopath to suit the individual.
