What Is Osteopathy

A safe, gentle and effective method of healing

Osteopathy is a form of natural medicine which aims to identify areas of the body that are restricted or inflamed and then gently manipulate these areas to promote better posture. This results in better functioning and less pain.

Spinal manipulation has been used for thousands of years.  It is believed that the ancient Greeks used to manipulate the spine long before it was incorporated into Chiropractic and Osteopathic medicine in the 19th Century.  Of course, spinal manipulation is only a small part of what osteopaths are trained to do.

Osteopathy may be helpful for:

  • Back and neck aches / pains
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Asthma
  • Sporting injuries
  • Spinal problems including disc problems, sciatica and trapped nerves
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Sinus and adenoidal problems
  • Pregnancy related pain
