What is Osteopathy?4th April 2022
Osteopathy is a form of detecting, treating and preventing a wide range of medical conditions. An Osteopath will work with the structure and function of your body, to nurture a healthy system in which your bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues all function smoothly together.
They use physical manipulation in the form of movement, stretching and massage to:
● Help increase the mobility of joints
● Relieve muscle tension
● Reduce pain
● Enhance blood supply to tissues
● Optimise nerve function throughout the body
Why might you need Osteopathy treatment?
It is most common for people to visit an Osteopath when they need help with conditions that effect their muscles, bones and joints. This includes but is not limited to:
● Neck, back and joint pain
● Conditions affecting the spine
● Problems associated with postural adaptations
● Headaches and migraines
● Arthritic and degenerative joint pain.
