Osteopathy

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a client-centred system of assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. It is a form of manual therapy, and is often considered a complementary therapy to conventional medicine.

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners (OMPs) recognize that the structure of the body governs how well it can function. Muscles, ligaments, connective tissues and the skeletal structure must be working smoothly together to support the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, lymphatic and nervous systems.

When there is pain or a problem, OMPs look at their patient as a whole, not just as a collection of symptoms. The aim of treatment is to restore health by addressing areas of dysfunction with manual therapy.
