What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a hands-on modality that aims to help the body to return to a state of balance. It looks at each injury from the view that the injury has an effect on the whole body. Therefore, only by taking into account the changes made by the whole body to accommodate the injury, can true long term recovery occur.
The Osteopathy Principles
Osteopathy is defined by three principles which are strictly followed by its practitioners:
- The body is whole, working as a unit.
This seems obvious enough to most people, yet most other therapies don't seem to take this into consideration when treating injuries. They end up focusing on the pain and symptoms only, without focusing on the cause. This leads to repeat injuries and pain coming back. E.g. Recurring ankle injuries.
- Structure and Function are inter-related.
Quite simply put, the physical structure of the body will affect how your body will work. And in return, poor function of the body over time, will have an effect on the body structure. This will allow the osteopath to look deeper into your lifestyle habits, so as to explain why your body falls into certain positions. E.g. Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI).
- The body has the ability to heal itself.
Osteopaths believe in the body's proven ability to heal itself. Much like you can see a small scratch on your arm heal over time, the same process happens inside your body, but on a larger scale. It is only when mechanical restriction slows this process down, do injuries become chronic or long term. Osteopaths are trained in identifying and removing these restrictions so that healing can occur.
