What we do
Osteopathy is a hands-on drug-free medicine which focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders. Tailored to the individual to treat the cause rather than just the symptoms. Practitioners are educated in traditional medical modalities of diagnosis but then undergo rigorous training in non-surgical techniques to treat the neuromusculoskeletal systems, this includes (but not limited to) the muscles, joints and nerves.
Hands-on techniques which include but are not limited to joint mobilisation & manipulation, soft tissue techniques, and deep muscular releases.

Whether you are looking for good posture, pain-free living, or performing better at your chosen sport.
