Osteopathy is a healthcare profession that utilises a patient focused, physical approach to restoring, maintaining and promoting physical and psychosocial well being. Primarily treatments take the form of a manual therapy involving massage, mobilisation and spinal manipulation for the treatment of musculo-skeletal problems. Pain can come from a wide variety of tissues including, muscles, ligaments, joints, nerves, bones and at times, organs.
Osteopathy is suitable for all areas of the body, not just the spine.
