Osteopathic facts

Osteopathy is an alternative medicine in the form of manual therapy. Osteopaths use your medical history, observation and palpation to diagnosis your problem(s) and hands on treatment and advice to treat you. All osteopathy treatment and advice is specific to you; we treat no two people the same!


Osteopaths work in the premise that the body cannot be split into parts and therefore one area of the body can affect all of the other parts. For example if you have knee pain as well as treating your knee we may also treat your ankle and hip as any problems with these joints may be contributing to your symptoms.
