Osteopathy is a complementary and alternative medicine that primarily focuses on the musculoskeletal system, but also considers the relationship between the body's structure and its function. It involves manual manipulation of the body's tissues, including muscles, bones, and joints, to alleviate pain, increase mobility, and improve overall health.

Osteopathy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including :

Back and neck pain

Headaches and migraines

Joint pain and stiffness, such as arthritis

Sports injuries

Postural problems

Digestive issues, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Respiratory problems, such as asthma and bronchitis

Menstrual pain and irregularities

Pregnancy-related discomfort

Stress and anxiety

Osteopathic treatment typically involves a thorough assessment of the patient's health history, lifestyle, and current symptoms, followed by hands-on techniques that aim to restore balance and promote healing in the body. Osteopaths may use a variety of techniques, including soft tissue massage, joint mobilization, and stretching exercises.

It is important to note that osteopathy does not replace conventional medical treatment, and patients with serious medical conditions should consult with their primary care physician before seeking osteopathic treatment. However, for many people, osteopathy can be an effective complementary therapy that promotes wellness and improves quality of life.
