What Does an Osteopath Do?
Osteopathy is a recognised and professional system of manual therapy that strongly emphasises a holistic consideration of your medical history and a systematic identification of body causes for your problems.
Osteopaths use gentle, hands on, effective techniques such as stretching, joint mobilisation, massage, exercise prescription and manipulation to skillfully address the significant physical issues and dysfunction in your body that relate to your complaint.
Osteopaths primarily treat musculo-skeletal injuries such as back, neck, hip, knee, shoulder, wrist and ankle pains, but can also help with other problems too.
All cases are individual and need a proper and thorough medical history and clinical examination before the Osteopath can advise you of the proper course of action.
