What is Osteopathy?
A Safe and Effective Approach to Neck and Back Pain
Osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners and are trained to recognise conditions requiring medical referral. They are also trained to perform standard medical examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.
- Osteopathy is a form of manual (or ‘hands on’) medicine that recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions.
- Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit.
- Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, osteopaths can identify and treat dysfunction in your body.
