What is Osteopathy?

Osteopaths conduct thorough assessments of each individual client and aim to discover the root cause of the presenting issue and help educate and prevent the risk of re-injury.

Osteopaths focus on the neuro-musculoskeletal system, which comprises bones, muscles, nerves and other tissues that support the human body and control its movements.

They provide musculoskeletal and nervous system assessments, manual therapy, clinical exercise programs, and movement, postural, positioning advice and ergonomic assessments.

Osteopaths may also offer ongoing support and educational advice about lifestyle, stress management, diet or other factors that may influence a person’s pain, injury or movement.
