Osteopathy is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning well together.
Osteopaths can treat a number of conditions including muscle aches, back pain, headaches and sports injuries to name a few.
Osteopaths use physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues and to help your body's own healing mechanisms. They can also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
