Osteopathic Manual Medicine, or Osteopathy, is a system of manual treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, nerves, muscles, ligaments and other soft tissues functioning smoothly together.
Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, and enhance the blood and nerve supply to and from tissues, thereby assisting your body’s own healing mechanisms. Osteopathic Manual Practitioners work to restore your body to a state of balance, without the use of drugs or surgery.
An Osteopathic Manual Practitioner will not be able to determine how many treatments a patient requires until they have examined them during their initial assessment.
