Osteopathy can be defined as; the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of musculo-skeletal disorders.
Osteopaths are specialists in injuries, pain and posture among many other health complaints. They are generally thought to treat backs and necks, but osteopaths can work on the whole body, not just the spine.
Osteopathy is a therapy of increasing popularity amongst people suffering from some form of structural pain problem. It is a primary healthcare service, meaning that it is often a first point of contact for patients and a practitioner. GP’s are increasingly referring their patients to Osteopaths for treatment of muscular or skeletal injuries.
It is against the law for a practitioner to call themselves an “Osteopath” unless they are registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) which means that all Osteopathic practitioners are clinically competent and you can rest assured that you will be in good hands.The issues that may come in to a clinic will vary from practice to practice, but below is a list of many of the common presentations that we see in our clinic;
