What is Osteopathy

A modern-day osteopath is trained as a primary contact practitioner who has a holistic approach to the treatment of a patient. The aim of the treatment is to restore the body whilst reducing the likelihood of problems reoccurring in the future. Treatment consists of a combination of hands on manual therapy such as massage, articulation and manipulation. It also includes advice on management, exercise, lifestyle, rehabilitation and referral if necessary.
