What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is best known for the diagnosis and treatment of back and neck pain, however, it is able to help you with a whole host of conditions. Osteopaths are experts in the treatment and management of musculoskeletal pain (pain from the muscles, bones, and joints) and seek to treat the underlying cause as well as the symptoms of pain and discomfort.
Ultimately, it is the goal of the osteopath to get you out of pain and guide you back to optimum health so that you can continue to function as normal in your daily life. Treatment may vary, depending on the signs and symptoms, though it may include joint manipulation, medical acupuncture, muscle stretching, deep tissue massage, postural assessment, lymphatic drainage, exercise prescription and dietary assessment.
