Osteopathy is a gentle, ‘hands-on’ approach to health care that recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way that it functions. By using a biopsychosocial (holistic) model, we work to uncover the true source of pain and restricted movement, creating long-term solutions for total body care. As Osteopaths, we gently align the spine, bones, joints and muscles ensuring proper nerve function, blood supply and drainage strengthening the body’s own innate healing potential. Using skilled evaluation and physical examination we work with a wide range of screening techniques including orthopaedic, neurological and osteopathic testing to properly diagnose the underlying cause of the problem. Osteopaths integrate a broad range of manual techniques to improve movement, alleviate pain, reduce tissue tension and resolve structural asymmetry’s with resisted stretching, gentle massage, articulation or joint mobilisation.
