Osteopathy is a form of drug-free non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine. Its aim is to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems providing the body with the opportunity to heal itself. It is a type of complementary and alternative medicine which primarily consists of moving, stretching and massaging a person’s muscles and joints. Its practitioners claim that the health and well being of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue functioning smoothly together. This therapy is a unique holistic (whole body) approach to health care for all ages including babies.
Osteopaths treat more than you think. Many patients have headaches, back, neck, and heel/ foot pain; sciatica; shin splints; and repetitive strain injury. Other patients suffer from asthma; arthritis; digestive problems; carpal tunnel syndrome; whiplash and postural problems.
