What is osteopathy?

Written by Super User. Posted in Blog

Osteopathy is a form of homeopathic medicine which treats the body’s musculoskeletal system by treating not just the symptoms of the patient, but looking for the root cause of their medical problems. It promotes complete body health by diagnosing and treating the muscles, tendons and joints with the goal of improving the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems. The therapy is a distinctive whole body approach that balances all of the body’s systems to provide overall positive health. It utilises nutrition and lifestyle modifications rather than medications and surgeries to effect changes in a person’s health. Many osteopaths have specialties in paediatrics, internal medicine, family medicine or gynaecology. The holistic approach of osteopathy is well recognised and accepted world wide.

Osteopaths use a holistic approach to treatment of injuries and illness to improve the overall health of their patients. The goal is to stimulate the natural healing processes present in our body. Osteopaths provide advice on prevention activities and changes in lifestyle to improve general health and reduce time and cost spent seeking medical care. They will address diet, stress reduction techniques, proper posture and breathing, proper lifting techniques and stretching exercises. Osteopaths stress early intervention to keep patients from taking time off work and promoting general good health.

Once patients have experienced the positive effects of osteopathic treatment they are able to understand why so many people are taking advantage of this whole body approach to the treatment of injury and illness. The skeletal manipulation, deep muscle massages, release of tension, and decrease or even complete removal of pain is a delightful and often times exhilarating feeling. In addition to treatment osteopaths will teach their patients about the underlying reasons for their musculoskeletal conditions. These explanations assist the patient to understand the cause of their condition and help them to take better care of themselves. 

There are many conditions that warrant a visit to an osteopath for diagnosis and treatment. Some people become disappointed with conventional treatment of chronic pain. Back pain and headaches are common conditions which respond well to osteopathic treatments.
