Osteopaths focus on your musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, muscles, nerves and other tissues that support the body and allow it to move. You can see an Osteopath when you experience problems like neck or back pain, sciatica, postural issues, sports injuries, headaches and tendon problems. Osteopaths also treat hip, knee and ankle pain, shoulder, elbow and wrist pain.
Osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners who recognise the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions. Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine which facilitates healing by focusing on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue, and internal organs work together as a whole functional unit.
Your areas of pain, tension and restriction are assessed by your osteopath who then uses ‘hands on’ treatments to ease your discomfort. They help to find and release structures and tissues that caused the pain or restricted movement within your body.
