Osteopathy is a philosophy of healthcare that acknowledges that the living body is a self-renewing, self-regenerating, self-recuperating system which maintains health constantly throughout life. Whenever that health-maintaining system is compromised, symptoms or disease could develop. Osteopathy is concerned with that which has compromised health rather than the resulting condition.
Medical Diagnosis and Osteopathic Treatment of your Aches and Pains
"Osteopaths have been Allied Health Professionals/ Allied Health Practitioners since 2017 and have been regulated by statute since 1993. They are trained to diagnose medically and also to use their hands to assess body function and dysfunction. This gives the osteopath uniquely sensitive information about the disability within the body and how this insight might be used to help restore health.
Looking at the underlying causes not just the symptoms!
"Although people commonly describe their symptoms in terms of conventional medical conditions, osteopaths do not primarily treat medical conditions; they are more concerned with the cascade of events which could have contributed to the development of those medical conditions.
