Osteopathy is a whole-body approach to healthcare that uses manual therapy to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury.
The primary therapeutic objective of Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy (OMTh) is to reinstate the body’s mobility and functions by treating the cause of the pain, the symptoms and the functional problems.
Osteopaths use a holistic approach. Your entire body will function well if your body is in good structural balance. Osteopaths use a wide range of gentle manipulation techniques, focusing on each patient’s specific needs, working with your body to create the perfect conditions to encourage the healing process.
Osteopathy brings your body to the point that it can auto-heal itself – able to act as a complement, and even replace, some medications or surgeries.
Osteopaths assess and treat patients of any age, from the newborn to the elderly, and at any stage in life, from pregnant women to athletes.
