Osteopathy is a form of manual healthcare which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions – we look to improve its structure and work to restore correction functioning. Osteopathy is different to other modalities as it is more than simply a method of treatment but more as a philosophy that looks at the human being as a self-regulating and self-healing. A large range of approaches and techniques can then be drawn upon to stimulate the body to heal and to balance itself. The osteopath does not concentrate so much on the area of pain but will focus on the entire individual to discover the underlying reason as to why they are in pain and why it has presented itself the way that it has.
Utilising skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques osteopaths can highlight important types of dysfunctions in your body. Osteopathic treatment utilises techniques such as massage and stretching for a general treatment of the soft tissues (tendons, muscles and ligaments) along with mobilisation of soft tissues and specific joints.
