What is Osteopathy?
The osteopath’s job is to diagnose and treat faults, that occur in the body’s framework. The faults may be due to injury, habitual misuse or over-use, disease states or congenital/developmental abnormalities.
Osteopathy uses many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis. It’s main strength, however, lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional, and postural standpoint and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of the individual patient.
