WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
Osteopaths use a wide range of gentle, safe and effective manual techniques to improve your physical function, reduce pain and enhance health.
We use massage techniques, joint mobilisation and manipulation, muscle stretching, “position of ease” techniques, and very subtle “cranial” and “visceral” osteopathic techniques.
We teach exercises and advise on suitable sport or leisure activities for you to try between appointments, and offer ergonomic advice and help with posture at work.
Osteopaths are nationally registered primary health care practitioners who have completed post-graduate level education and training which includes detailed study of anatomy, physiology, pathology, and medical and orthopaedic diagnosis, as well as osteopathic philosophy and treatment techniques.
