Osteopathy is a ‘hands on’ manual therapy which takes into account a patient’s personal and medical history. In combination with dietary, postural and occupational advice as well as counselling, it is a practical and effective treatment for the treatment of a range of illnesses and injuries and also assists in the ongoing management of pain and disease.
By paying attention to the significance of any change in structure or function (the joints, muscles, ligaments, bones and connective tissue) an osteopath is able to interpret whole patterns of aches, pains and general health problems.
Headaches, for example, are the final symptom of lower back or foot related problems. An osteopath therefore will find and treat the underlying cause of the problem rather than treat the symptoms of a problem with drugs and medication.
