Osteopathy is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment that lays its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. It focuses on the musculo-skeletal system: the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues and the way this fits in with the general function of the body as a whole. Osteopaths combine orthodox knowledge of orthodox medical sciences with specialised methods of evaluation and treatment. After treatment an osteopath may advise on various health issues and ways to achieve a realistic level of health through exercise, ergonomics and lifestyle advice.
