Osteopathy is an extremely effective approach to healthcare involving manual adjustments of the musculoskeletal and surrounding organ systems. It places importance on the interrelatedness of the structure and function of the body and of optimum circulation for tissue health.
The aim of the osteopath is to find the origin of pain or dysfunction in the body and to correct the restrictions that are in the way of optimum function, using the body’s built-in self healing mechanism.
Osteopaths are medically trained to make an accurate diagnosis of your presenting condition. They may use investigations such as x-rays, MRI, CT and ultrasound and correspond with your GP, specialist, or other treatment provider to give the most appropriate care and management.
