Your wellbeing depends on your muscles, bones, ligaments, joints, connective tissue and organs functioning in harmony. All systems of the body are related therefore a change in one area can affect the functioning of another system. Manual Osteopathy helps restore the normal function of the body by treating the causes of pain that may be the result of illness, injury, or stress of daily living.
Manual Osteopathic treatments incorporate several techniques including joint mobilization/manipulations, soft tissue massage, myofascial release and scar tissue management, rehabilitation and postural exercises, combined with self-care advice. Before undertaking any physical examination, your Manual Osteopath will take into account your medical history, lifestyle and personal circumstances, acknowledging that, while your condition may be similar to others, you are unique.

In addition to the conditions mentioned previously, Manual Osteopathy can effectively treat cranial and visceral issues. Cranial Osteopathy focuses on the subtle movements and rhythms of the skull and its related tissues, aiming to restore balance and alleviate various conditions. Visceral Osteopathy, on the other hand, addresses dysfunctions and imbalances in the internal organs, promoting optimal organ function and overall health.
Moreover, Manual Osteopathy offers specialized treatments for pediatric patients. Children can benefit from Manual Osteopathy in managing various conditions, including:
- Ear infections
- Digestive issues

These are just a few examples of the pediatric issues that Manual Osteopathy can effectively address. By employing gentle techniques tailored to the unique needs of children, Manual Osteopaths can assist in restoring balance and promoting the healthy development of their musculoskeletal and physiological systems.
In summary, Manual Osteopathy is a comprehensive approach that can help alleviate a wide range of conditions, including those affecting the cranial, visceral, and pediatric realms. By employing various techniques and considering each individual’s specific circumstances, Manual Osteopaths work towards restoring optimal functioning and enhancing overall well-being.
