About Osteopathy

Osteopathic treatment

Classical Osteopaths treat using traditional techniques which are used to balance and integrate the whole body, as well as working very specifically on problem areas by adjusting the 'mechanics' or framework of the body. This physical adjustment allows the fluids and nerve supply to flow freely and enables the body to function normally.

Classical Osteopathic techniques are gentle and relaxing, using minimal force on areas requiring specific attentions. These hands-on techniques are favoured for their effectiveness over the machines so commonly used today.

Osteopaths are trained to diagnose and treat conditions from long-standing chronic to the most acutely painful. Early treatment of any acute injury is essential to prevent a chronic condition establishing with the risk of recurring sprains and strains. In addition to physical treatment advice is often given as well on:

  • Exercise;
  • Posture;
  • Diet.
