What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment, using a variety of manual methods, which focuses on how well the body functions in relation to its structure. If the structure of the body [i.e. skeleton, muscles, ligaments connective tissues etc] is impaired, then it is unable to function efficiently and this usually leads to pain.

Strengths of Osteopathy

One of the main strengths of osteopathy is the unique way the patient is assessed. We do this by carefully examining the patient’s mechanical, functional and postural abilities, always remembering how each part of the body is interrelated. We also view the patient holistically, taking into account all aspects of the patient’s lifestyle.
Osteopaths also use a highly trained sense of touch, called palpation, to identify areas of restriction, joint mobility, tissue tension and quality.

Aims of Osteopathy

Osteopaths seek to restore the optimal function and movement of the body and aid its inherent ability to heal itself. The Osteopath aims to improve the mechanics of the body, which automatically influences other areas such as the blood and nerve supply, lymph as well as the activity of the internal organs For this reason Osteopaths can not only treat the common problems such as joint and muscle strains, but may also help relieve pain and other symptoms associated with arthritis, headaches, asthma, menstrual and digestive problems.
When the body is in balance and moving efficiently, just like a well-tuned engine, it will function with the minimum of wear and tear, leaving more energy for living.

About Osteopathy

Osteopathy was first developed and introduced by Dr A T Still in the 1870`s in Mid-West America and later brought to England in the early 1900`s. From its early introduction into Britain, Osteopathy has gained wide acclaim for its holistic approach to patient care and its success in treating many musculoskeletal conditions.

Today osteopathy is a distinct healthcare profession recognised in the Osteopaths Act 1993. All osteopaths are registered with the General Osteopathic Council and have undergone 4 years of rigorous training and study to honours degree level.
