Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a complete system of medical care. The philosophy is to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. It emphasizes the interrelationships of structure and function, and the appreciation of the body's ability to heal itself.

Osteopathy is a medical discipline based on manual diagnosis and treatment of impaired movement within the human body. Impaired movement between different tissues of the body result in impaired functioning of the body, thus causing illness.

Osteopathy is a combination of three things: science, art and technique, much the same way as man is a combination of mind, body and spirit.

Science

It’s science lies in an in-depth knowledge of the human body, derived from basic medical subjects such as anatomy, physiology, neurology, pathology etc. This knowledge allows us to practise osteopathy safely and to know when a patient should be referred to medical practitioners.

Art

The art of osteopathy lies in understanding the patient one is dealing with. Understanding how to approach him/her in a manner that will restore balance to the body and therefore allow the body to reclaim a healthier state.

Technique

Techniques are the body of Osteopathy. They allow medical science and the artful approach towards a patient to be channelled into a manual treatment that removes the obstacles that impede normal movement.

Osteopaths use their hands to treat patients, and are expert in a wide variety of tried and tested manual techniques. It’s effective for a wide range of conditions including:

Lower and upper back pain
Sciatica
Sport injuries
Trapped nerves
Frozen shoulder
Whiplash
Headaches (stress, tension, posture)
Joint pain/dysfunction
Arthritis
Postural problems
