What is Osteopathy?
Thanks for asking! Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to healing and wellness. Osteopathy restores health and prevents injury by improving the structural integrity of the body, primarily the spine. The brain communicates with the rest of the body via the spinal cord and nervous system. When functioning perfectly, this communication is uninterrupted, and the messages go to and from the brain without interference.
Addressing the root of the problem
The nervous system is the body's wiring. If there's something wrong with the wiring, the signal does not reach the intended body part, and this may result in illness. Interference of this kind may be manifested anywhere along your spine. Pain in your arm or hand may actually be caused by a problem in your neck, where the nerves connecting to the hand originate. A qualified osteopathy can examine the spine for interferences and remove them through controlled techniques.
Osteopathy focuses on the relationship of structure and function, and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of your health. Qualified osteopaths are professional medical practitioners, delivering long-term care at a fraction of the cost of drug treatments and surgery.
