What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on the treatment and manipulation of the musculoskeletal system to diagnose, treat, and prevent a wide range of health issues.

Osteopaths believe that the body’s structure and function are closely intertwined and that imbalances in the body’s framework can lead to various health problems.

What is the difference between an Osteopath and a Physiotherapist?

Osteopaths and Physiotherapists are both healthcare professionals that are experts in musculoskeletal health, and in our opinions are very similar.

Osteopaths, like physios take a holistic approach, considering the interconnectedness of the body’s structure and function. They employ manual techniques such as manipulation, massage, and stretching to restore balance and alleviate pain. Osteopathic treatment often focuses on addressing the root cause of dysfunction aiming to improve overall health and well-being.
