Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together. In order for your body to work well, its structure must also work well and so osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. Instead they use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to: •increase the mobility of joints •relieve muscle tension •enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues and •help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring. Owen Rist is our practitioner specialising in this therapy.
