Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions. Osteopathic philosophy works on the following principles;

  • The body is an integral unit - mind, body and spirit
  • The different parts of the body (structure) and how they work (function) are interdependent and interrelated
  • The body is self-regulating and self-healing in the face of disease
  • Proper function of the body is dependent on the unimpeded supply of the body's fluids and in the expression of the nerves

 

Using skilled evaluation we use a range of screening techniques including orthopaedic tests to properly diagnose the problem. The techniques utilised in the treatment will be dependant on the diagnosis and could include any of the following hands on methods and include:

  • Stretching 
  • Massage 
  • Muscle energy technique 
  • Mobilisation of specific joints 
  • Articulation 
  • Dry needling
  • Balancing tension within the ligaments, 
  • Cranial osteopathy 
  • Functional technique 
  • Proprioceptive insoles
  • Natural herbs
