Additional Health Services
Osteopathy is a hands-on, drug-free system of healthcare with the core concept that your body’s function and its structures are two sides of the same coin. By working with the structures themselves, and the relationships between them - for example the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves - osteopaths seek to diagnose, treat, remove and prevent barriers to your natural healing processes and allow you to rediscover natural, healthy function.
Osteopaths are recognised as able to aid with a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to: joint and arthritic pains; backache and back pain in general; pains in the neck, shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and other joints; circulatory and digestive problems; and several types of headache including tension headaches and migraines. Osteopaths are also fully trained in clinical diagnostic procedures to ensure that osteopathy is an appropriate treatment for each individual’s complaint, and are able to make referrals to other medical practitioners should that be the best course of action for the patient.
