Osteopathy is a primary health care system concentrating on the structure and function of the body, suitable for almost anyone and can contribute to the treatment and management of a wide range of conditions. Osteopaths primarily work through the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, mostly on muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and joints, to make sure that all components are functioning smoothly together.
A core principle behind osteopathy is the idea that the body is an integrated and indivisible whole, and contains self-healing mechanisms that can be utilised as part of the treatment. No part of the body works, or can be considered, in isolation. Relevant psychological and social factors also form part of the process of patient diagnosis.
The key tools for osteopathic diagnosis include listening to the patient's history, examining muscles and joints and observing movements. X-rays, scans and other clinical investigations are also used if required. A wide range of non-invasive manual techniques such as deep tissue massage, joint articulation and manipulation are applied therapeutically using a holistic and patient-centred approach.
Advice on posture, nutrition and exercise may also be provided to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
