Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by mobilising, stretching and manipulating a person’s muscles and joints. It is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.
Osteopaths use physical manipulation, stretching and massage with the aim of increasing the mobility of joints, relieving muscle tension and enhancing the blood supply to tissues.
Most people who see an osteopath do so for help with conditions that affect the muscles, bones and joints, such as:
lower back pain
neck pain
shoulder pain and elbow pain (for example, tennis elbow)
arthritis
problems with the pelvis, hips and legs
sports injuries
muscle and joint pain associated with driving, work or pregnancy
