What is osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It recognises that much of the pain and disability people suffer stems from abnormalities in our body’s structure and function. Osteopaths seek to diagnose and treat problems with muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints using gentle, manual techniques – easing pain and improving mobility.
As a profession, we are governed by the General Osteopathic Council who define osteopathy as, “a way of detecting and treating damaged parts of the body such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints. When the body is balanced and efficient, just like a well tuned engine, it will function with the minimum of wear and tear, leaving more energy for living.”
What do osteopaths treat?
This is by no means a definitive list, but osteopaths regularly treat each of the following:
- Joint pain (all joints including jaw)
- Muscle spasms
- Rheumatic pain
- Back and neck pain
- Circulatory problems
