Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment which focuses on the muscular-skeletal system (the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues) and the way in which it interacts with the body as a whole.

 

An osteopath diagnoses and treats dysfunction, which occurs due to injury, stress or disease, to enable the body to restore itself to normal function.

 

Treating the patient as an individual is essential for an osteopath.

Osteopaths use their hands to carry out treatment, using either a variety of manipulative techniques or the cranial approach.

 

On initial consultation with an osteopath a full medical history will be taken. With children extra information about length of labour, use of forceps, type of presentation etc may be sought.

 

Once this information is gathered, the patient will then be assessed. Simple observation and gentle palpation would be used to identify any parts of weakness, strain or injury the body is exhibiting.

 

Once this is determined, the osteopath should then be able to give a diagnosis and prognosis, and outline a treatment plan.
