Project Description

Osteopathy is a primary health care system, complementary to other medical practices.





Osteopaths are trained, over a 4 year full time degree course, in anatomy, physiology, pathology and very specific manipulative techniques. This skill set is then applied to the Osteopathic approach to healthcare.

Alongside the theoretical approach to diagnosis, Osteopaths use a well developed sense of touch to investigate the underlying causes of pain and to treat using a variety of manipulative techniques. Treatment may include muscle and connective tissue stretching, rhythmic joint mobilisation, cranial techniques and high velocity thrust to improve the joint mobility.

The key tools for osteopathic diagnosis include listening to the patient’s history, examining muscles and joints and observing movements. X -rays, scans and other clinical investigations are also used if required. A wide range of gentle, non-invasive manual techniques such as deep tissue massage, joint articulation and manipulation are applied therapeutically.
