Osteopathy is a safe and natural therapy which focuses on the framework of the body consisting of the bones, ligaments, muscles and connective tissues. Osteopaths assess the condition of this musculoskeletal system looking for areas of weakness, imbalance and excessive strain. These potential problem points in the system determine how well the body functions and therefore have an influence on general health.
Osteopaths are best known for the successful treatment of back problems and joint complaints. However, as osteopaths are interested in the whole of the musculoskeletal system it means many other conditions can be treated.
Osteopathy is suitable for all age groups with treatment for newborn babies adjusting to life outside of the womb, growing pains in older children, all manner of sporting injuries in the active types, postural problems in the office workers and old arthritic joints in the older age groups.
Osteopathic treatment aimed at improving the mechanics of the body automatically influences things such as lymphatic function, blood and nerve supply as well as the functioning of the internal organs.
