Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a type of health care system of diagnosis and treatment[1] that emphasizes relationship between structure and function in the body, and the ways it can be affected through manipulative therapy and other treatment modalities.

Osteopathy as practiced in Europe and other countries around the world differs greatly in scope and approach where a branch of the medical profession called osteopath is trained and certified to practice all modern medicine. Elsewhere osteopaths are trained only in manual osteopathic treatment, generally to relieve muscular and skeletal conditions.

Osteopathy is a treatment for low back pain and some types of neck, shoulder or lower limb pain and recovery after hip or knee operations. There is no, or insufficient, evidence that osteopathy is effective as a treatment for health conditions “unrelated” to the bones and muscles, “such as headaches, migraines, painful periods, digestive disorders, depression and excessive crying in babies (colic)”.

Osteopathy enhances the health of the whole person. Our Osteopath does this by excelling in a comprehensive range of non-invasive and manual therapies that liberate from pain, rehabilitate, and promote health by facilitating the natural healing process – thus improving the quality of our patient’s lives.

Generally patients seek osteopathic care for aches, pains, strains, sprains, headaches and other common musculoskeletal problems. Their body begins to heal once the alignment of the musculoskeletal system is corrected and balance is restored. Thus, osteopaths and our other practitioners facilitate natural healing of the mind, body and soul.
