What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment, using a variety of manual methods. Osteopathy is complementary to other medical practices. It is suitable for almost anyone and can contribute to the treatment and management of a wide range of conditions. Osteopaths primarily work through the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, mostly on muscles and joints, using holistic and patient-centred approaches.

A core principle behind osteopathy is the idea that the body is an integrated and indivisible whole, and contains self-healing mechanisms that can be utilised as part of the treatment. The body is interconnected , and no part can be viewed in isolation. Relevant psychological and social factors also form part of the process of patient diagnosis.
