Osteopathy

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by moving, stretching and massaging a person's muscles and joints. It is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.

Osteopaths use physical manipulation, stretching and massage with the aim of:

  • increasing the mobility of joints

  • relieving muscle tension

  • reducing pain

  • enhancing the blood supply to tissues

  • helping the body to heal

 

They use a range of techniques, but not medicines or surgery. In the UK, osteopathy is a health profession regulated by UK law.
