Osteopathy is a natural system of health care using manual methods of diagnosis and treatment designed to work alongside orthodox medicine that enables an effective and safe return to health.
It utilises the direct relationships between the bony articulations & the neuromuscular system, to restore mobility and physiological harmony between the moving parts. It utilises a variety of techniques including soft tissue mobilisation, ligamentous stretch techniques and high velocity short amplitude manipulations. It no longer works on the principles of bones being out of place, more that the normal structural relationships between the body parts is an essential requirement for health.
The approach to Manipulative techniques in Osteopathic terms, focuses on the teaching of skills and hand holds which ensure operator and patient safety, control, specificity and effectiveness. Manipulations should be gentle, not painful and specifically non-torsional, using multiple components. High velocity low amplitude techniques can provide rapid local mechanical changes, as well as wider more far reaching effects throughout the circulatory, neuromuscular skeletal and other systems in the body encompassed within Osteopathy.
