Osteopathy is a distinct healthcare profession, regulated by the General Osteopathic Council.
It focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, management and prevention of musculoskeletal (bones, muscles and nerves) disorders without the use of drugs or surgery.
Osteopaths seek to understand patients as individuals and try to establish the cause of their problem so they take a full medical history and use their hands to feel the state of muscles and joints in the body.
Osteopathic treatment and management is aimed at optimising conditions so that the body is able to activate its own healing mechanisms. This often involves advice, massage and safe readjustment of joints to restore normal movement and blood flow to an area that is not functioning properly.
Osteopaths work together with other healthcare professions such as GP’s, neurologists, radiologists, orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, podiatrists, counsellors and acupuncturists to ensure that their patient’s care is appropriate and complete.
Osteopathy is safe, gentle and effective.
