What is Osteopathy?


Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions.

The founder of osteopathy, Andrew Taylor Still, outlined the foundations that the well being of an individual is dependent on all the body’s functions working in harmony and that the body contains its own self healing mechanisms.

Osteopathy is the method of bringing the body into position whereby in can heal itself. Treatment is tailored to the individual depending on their presenting complaint and their diagnosis. Osteopathic treatment aims to treat the cause of the presenting discomfort in order to alleviate the symptoms.

Key tools of an osteopathic diagnosis include understanding the patient’s medical history, examining the body as a whole through observation and palpation and the use of orthopaedic and neurological testing. Relevant psychological, social, occupational and dietary factors are also taken into consideration in the process of forming the patient’s diagnosis.

Osteopathy is more than just the time you spend with your practitioner, along with treatment you will be informed about your injury and also provided with advice and exercises on how best to speed up your body’s healing process and prevent the reoccurrence of injury.
