What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a unique system of treatment and evaluation that uses a hands on approach, working alongside mainstream medicine to improve an individual's health. Osteopathy is especially helpful in the maintenance of posture and the treatment of pain, and provides effective results in treating:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Repetitive muscle strains
  • Sporting injuries
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Jaw Pain
  • Carpal tunnel and wrist pain
  • Sciatica and disc injury
  • Arthritic and joint pain
  • Tendonitis and bursitis
  • Postural strain and scoliosis
  • Pregnancy pain
  • Foot pain, plantar fasciitis

Differences between Musculoskeletal practitioners

Osteopathy reviews the body in a global way, identifying and treating the source of the issue as well as the symptoms.

Physios specialize in rehabilitation following injury whereas Osteopaths specialize in injury prevention and injury source management, to ensure the injury is less likely to reoccur.
