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.
