How Osteopathy works

Osteopathic treatment aims to release and stretch muscle and ligamentous tension and mobilize joints. This is to help relieve pain, increase mobility and enhance the blood and nerve supply to the tissues.

Treatment alters the arrangement of muscle fibers and affects neural (nerve) feedback. This promotes ease of movement and reduction in pain.

We emphasize the importance of the interconnections within the body. Consequently, treatment will be directed at the whole body and not just the area of pain. This serves to improve overall tissue health and function and helps your body’s natural healing mechanisms.
