Osteopathy is over 100 years old and was first developed by an army medic called Andrew Taylor Still in America. It is a complete system of health care with a core belief that the body is its own medicine chest and that promotion of good blood supply to the tissues through movement and adequate nutrition, will heal injuries.
The osteopath will take a full history of your health and condition and examine you fully during your first consultation. Techniques such as soft tissue, joint manipulation and mobilisation will be used to treat the problem area, supplemented with exercise & lifestyle advice. The overall aim is to achieve balance within the tissues and promote good health.
