What is Osteopathy?


Osteopathy is a form of professional hands-on manual therapy that is popular for its holistic view of treating and assessing the body as a whole unit. This view leads to a belief that any structure or system can contribute to pain and/or dysfunction elsewhere in the body. Where many modalities focus on a specific area of pain or discomfort, Osteopaths will scan and assess other regions of the body if needed to find not just the problem, but the cause behind it. Osteopaths are well known for their large and varied range of techniques, which enables them to successfully treat many presentations.
