Osteopathy is a system of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by moving, stretching and massaging a person’s muscles and joints. In the UK, osteopathy is a health profession regulated by UK law. Osteopaths use a range of different techniques, but not drugs or surgery, to get results. We use physical manipulation, stretching and massage with the aim of:
- increasing the mobility of joints
- relieving muscle tension in different parts of the body
- enhancing the blood supply to tissues
- helping the body to heal
Osteopaths’ patients include the young, older people, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children and sportspeople. Osteopathy patients often seek treatment for back pain, neck pain, shoulder problems, changes to posture in pregnancy, postural problems caused by driving or work strain, knee and hip pain, the pain of arthritis, sports injuries and a whole range of other conditions.
