Osteopathy is an established and recognised system of diagnosis and treatment with its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body.
The pain and disability we suffer often stems from the abnormalities in the function of our musculoskeletal frame, as well as damage to it caused by disease.
Osteopathy is holistic in its approach. For optimum health, our skeleton, muscles and ligaments must be functioning smoothly together, which in turn promotes health in the circulatory and nervous system. Osteopaths recognise that the body has to be in balance on a physical, emotional and psychological level for full health to be expressed.
Since 9th May 2000 all osteopaths must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). This means they have undergone recognised training and are bound by government regulations, just like doctors and dentists, with patient welfare, their prime concern.
Osteopathic assessment and diagnosis uses a variety of procedures to determine areas of strain or weakness that may be leading to pain and discomfort. Each patient is assessed from a mechanical, postural and functional standpoint.
