Osteopathy is well-regarded and popular worldwide due to its distinct approach to healthcare, based on an established system of clinical diagnosis focusing on the structure and function of the body. Osteopathic treatment is varied and can complement other treatments, using a multitude of techniques to restore the homeostatic balance of the body’s systems. In restoring this balance, osteopathy can alleviate pain and discomfort from most parts of the body through hands-on pain management to encourage optimal health and function without using drugs or surgery.
