Osteopaths understand the close relationship between the structures (and position) of the body’s parts and its function (or lack of). Osteopaths consider the body as a whole and use this in their diagnosis and treatment of a problem. Osteopaths use a combination of specific orthopaedic and osteopathic examinations to create an accurate diagnosis, which can be treated accordingly. Osteopathy is safe gentle and effective and use a range of techniques such as: joint mobilization, joint manipulation, cranial-sacral techniques, muscle energy techniques, myofacial release, trigger point therapy, visceral osteopathy and dry needling.
