What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is ‘hands-on’ manual medicine for the musculoskeletal system. Osteopathy specializes in the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders and medical conditions.

The ethos of osteopathy is to not simply treat symptoms but address the underlying cause of pain and dysfunction. We take a holistic view and believe that the body is interconnected and each part affects another. We aim to restore normal biomechanical function to the musculoskeletal system and in doing so engage the body’s own inherent healing mechanisms.

Osteopathy is a recognized primary care profession and is regulated by the statutory body – the General Osteopathic Council.
