What is osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a hands-on, holistic form of treatment, assessing the whole body. It focuses on treating the musculo-skeletal system to re-establish balance and encourage the self-healing mechanism of the individual. By regarding body, mind and soul as a unit, osteopathy offers person-centered health care rather than disease-centered. While considering the interrelationship of structure and function, osteopathic practitioners perform non-invasive techniques such as joint mobilization, soft tissue therapy, and prescribe exercises.
What does osteopathy help treat?
Some indications in which osteopathy could be beneficial to your wellbeing are if you suffer from musculoskeletal pain, tension headaches or migraines, sinus pressure or nasal congestion, bronchitis or chronic cough, postural abnormalities, herniated or slipped disc, post surgical scarring, neuralgias, sleep disorder, or pregnancy pain among other symptoms.
