Osteopathy seeks to work on the structure of the body, restoring it to a balanced state to get it working at its best.
Osteopaths use physical manipulation, stretching and massage to make the joints more mobile, to relieve tension in the muscles, improve blood flow and nerve supply to body tissues, and to help the healing mechanisms of the body.
Patients seek the services of an osteopath for a wide range of conditions. These include back and neck pain, joint pain, muscle strains, repetitive strain injury, postural problems or changes in pregnancy, or as a result of driving, work or sporting activity. They also see clients who suffer the pain of arthritis and who get injured as a result of sporting activities.

This was established during the 19th century by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still as a way of stimulating the body's own self-healing mechanisms. Osteopathy is a holistic system of medicine which sees the mind and all body systems as interdependent and mutually supporting. Problems in the musculo-skeletal system may cause or reflect problems in other parts of the body.
The primary focus is on joint and soft tissue manipulation, since these are seen as vital to the functioning of the body as a whole. However they may also give advice on diet, exercise, posture and lifestyle. Each patient is treated as an individual to restore total body health. It is not restricted to treating symptoms alone.
Osteopathy achieved official recognition with the passing of the Osteopathy Act (1993). All osteopaths must register with the General Osteopathic Council.
In a consultation a full medical history will be taken and details of the current problem as well as a physical examination. The osteopath may use a range of techniques to manipulate soft tissues and joints while the patient lies on a couch. Some osteopaths use cranial (head and neck area) manipulation.
