What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is an established, recognised medical discipline in the primary healthcare system.
Osteopathy is drug-free non-invasive manual medicine that focuses aligning and strengthening the whole body framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine. By ensuring the body has a good alignment and mobility, it can alleviate the body of pain and create a positive effect on the nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.
Osteopathy is a whole body approach to health care. Osteopaths do not simply treat the symptomatic area, but uses gentle and effective hands-on technique and nutritional advice to balance all systems of the body, to provide overall good health and wellbeing.
Osteopathy – A Recognised Therapy
In 1993, the Osteopaths Act gave Osteopaths a similar legal status as doctors and dentists. This means that professional standards now protect Osteopathic patients in the same way as patients of doctors and dentists. All Osteopaths are registered with the General Osteopathic Council, which maintains the highest standards of education and ethics. Osteopathy was the first “alternative medicine” to be given statutory self-regulation in this country. When you see an Osteopath, you’re in safe hands.
