Osteopathy

  • Our Osteopathy department provides you with a system of non-invasive manual therapy that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. Osteopathy can reduce pain in arthritic conditions, and when used in conjunction with medical treatment, can be of value in reducing the severity of symptoms in conditions such as asthma, gynecological dysfunction and chronic fatigue. Osteopathic treatment can also help new mothers with back pain during pregnancy and to prepare the body for birth. In addition, there are a wide variety of gentle non-manipulative techniques for use on infants and small children.

Osteopathy is best known for the treatment of:

  • Back and neck pain

  • sciatica

  • headaches

  • pains in peripheral joints such as shoulders, knees and ankles, tendinitis and muscle strains

  • work-related and repetitive strain injuries

  • sports-related injuries
