Osteopathy is the system of diagnosis and treatment that works on the body framework to relieve pain and musculoskeletal problems.
Osteopathy is an officially recognised primary contact Health Care Profession, a system of manual medicine based on the original discoveries and clinical experiences of its American founder, Dr Andrew Taylor Still (1828 – 1917).
Osteopathy recognises the importance of the link between the structure of the human body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on the body’s skeleton and bone structure, and on the muscles, soft tissues and internal organs that help to supports it, move it and keep it alive. Osteopaths use soft tissue techniques as well as mobilisation, manipulation, exercises and postural advice to help relieve patients discomfort and difficulties.
