WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?

Osteopathy is a profession dedicated to assessing, treating and rehabilitating dysfunctional parts of the human body. These include muscles, joints, nerves and ligaments. Osteopathy is particularly concerned with restoring efficiency to the musculo-skeletal system. When the body runs smoothly there is less strain on its moving parts. Just like a car! Osteopathy is a physical, manual therapy that uses hands-on treatment such as soft-tissue massage, joint mobilisation and manipulation, stretching, exercises and much more.

Osteopathy has lots of similarities to Physiotherapy and Chiropractic, but also a few differences. The difference between OsteopathyPhysiotherapy and Chiropractic are often based on the individual practitioner.
