What We Do
Osteopathy is focused on ensuring that the musculoskeletal system is in proper alignment. It’s a holistic healthcare practice that views every joint, muscle, tendon and ligament as an integral part of the overall system. Therefore, if one joint or muscle is injured, osteopaths believe there are flow-on effects throughout the body.
By ensuring that the entire musculoskeletal system is functioning in harmony, osteopaths believe that the body is better able to heal itself and the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems can function better.
Our hands-on therapy treatments include:
- Spinal manipulation
- Soft tissue massage
- Resistance stretching and flexibility exercise
- Mobilisation and articulation of joints
- Visceral manipulation
