Each of these are interlinked and work together within the body so that if one area is not working properly it will have a knock on effect on other areas.
The osteopath works to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. Osteopaths use touch, stretching, massage and physical manipulation to increase the mobility of the joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and the nerve supply to the tissues and to help your own body’s healing mechanism.
The osteopath may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms from recurring.
Some osteopaths work with and influence organ function (visceral osteopathy) and movement of the cerebrospinal fluid (cranial osteopathy).
