Osteopathy works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together. For your body to work well, its structure must also work well, so osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance. They use a variety of techniques, including physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring. Osteopathy is widely recognised as a treatment for: aches and pains; arthritic, back, joint and rheumatic pain; backache; muscle spasms; circulatory and digestive problems; cramp; fibromyalgia; neuralgia; inability to relax and sports injuries.
