What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a holistic approach to treating back, muscle, joint, mobility, pain and inflamation problems.

The Osteopathic treatment process begins with a properly qualified practitioner taking a detailed medical history from you in a face-to-face consultation. Your medical history, in conjunction with a phyical examination, helps your Osteopath to diagnose the underlying causes of your aches and pains and will let them give you a personalised treatment plan that can most effectively manage your condition.
