What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a form of manual healthcare which focuses on how the anatomical structures and systems of the human body work together as a holistic unit. This involves looking at the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and internal organs to determine what may be going wrong. The team at OsteoWest will examine, diagnose and treat your complaint, whilst offering best and obtainable outcomes. 

Osteopathic treatments usually consist of soft tissue techniques, like massage and stretching, along with joint manipulation and mobilisation of specific joints and muscles. We may also use dry needling or myofascial cupping therapy in conjunction with these techniques.   

At OsteoWest, we also use our highly trained skills to be able to identify conditions that require further medical referral. We will perform a comprehensive examination of the musculoskeletal system, but may also screen the cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems if necessary.    We aim to provide the best possible care to each patient and assist them in attaining their health and wellbeing goals.
