ABOUT OSTEOPATHY

Osteopathy is a system of manual diagnosis and treatment used for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. It is based on the principle that the well-being of a person is dependent on the body’s muscles, ligaments, skeleton and connective tissue working in harmony. It uses the philosophy that in order for an individual to function well, then the underlying structures need to be working well together and therefore looks to restore balance and function where dysfunction exists.

YOU ARE IN SAFE HANDS

Osteopathy is a safe and effective form of Primary Healthcare that is protected by statue and is regulated in the UK. All Osteopaths must be registered with the General Osteoapthic Council (GOsC) which promotes high standards of care and monitors the profession. All osteopaths have undertaken a 4 or 5 year degree course, attained a Bachelors or Masters degree and will have done a minimum of 1000 clinic hours prior to qualifying to register with GOsC.

WHAT DO OSTEOPATHS DO?

Osteopaths use a variety of techniques including palpation; articulation; manipulation; METs, Trigger Points and soft-tissue massage to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, thereby supporting the body’s own healing mechanisms. Osteopathy is effective for those seeking immediate care and is beneficial for those wishing to invest in long-term health and preventative solutions.
