What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a type of manual therapy that looks at the body as a whole.

It diagnoses and treats a range of medical conditions by systematically assessing how the body is functioning and looking for disease or injury.

It focuses on the muscles and skeletal system, ensuring that these are all working in balance. Therefore Osteopathy is used to treat many common muscloskeletal problems.
