Osteopathy is a holistic form of manual therapy focused on the neuro-musculoskeletal system – the bones, muscles, nerves and other tissues that support your body and control its movements. Osteopathic philosophy gives a holistic (whole body) approach to health, and stresses the importance of the musculoskeletal system in a person’s health and well-being. The aim of treatment is to support the body’s self-healing capacity.

An osteopath focuses on the soft tissues (such as muscles, ligaments and tendons), the spine and nervous system, and may use a variety of different hands-on methods, including:

  • Spinal manipulation
  • Soft tissue massage techniques
  • Articulation – gentle rhythmic joint movements
  • Stretching muscles and joint capsules
  • Muscle energy techniques – encouraging muscles to work against resistance
  • Visceral manipulation – gentle movement of the abdominal and pelvic areas.

We strive to offer the best in evidence-based osteopathy services.

Patient-centred Treatment

As osteopathic techniques include a gentle approach, they can be suitable for many people, from the newborn to the older person, and for those with complex medical problems.

Osteopaths can manage a range of conditions including:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches
  • Vertigo
  • Repetitive strain and overuse injuries
  • Pregnancy-related discomfort
  • Tendonitis
  • Sports injuries

Because osteopaths believe that there may be a musculoskeletal link in many conditions, osteopathy may also help with a wider range of disorders.
