Most of you will think of osteo as being “bones or something”? This is partly true, osteo does mean “relating to bones” however, bones aren’t all an Osteopath treats. Not at all in fact, bones are only a very small part of it.
Osteopathy is a form of so called “neuromuscular manual therapy” which means we use our hands to treat your bones, joints, muscles, nervous system and other body systems. We carefully look at what is related to your complaint and treat the relevant tissues accordingly.
An osteopath can provide hands on treatment, exercise programs, ergonomic advice, and lifestyle education.
