What do Osteopaths treat?
Osteopaths treat more than you think!
On a daily basis, Osteopaths help people who have pain. We are manual therapists, which means we use our hands to assess and treat the body. We are also physical therapists and this means we're qualified to address how you move, give you exercises and advise you on what you might need to change to live more comfortably.
Osteopaths assess the mobility of problem areas, ask you questions and make a diagnosis to work out the best treatment plan for each patient.
Osteopaths treat more than you think. They focus on how your skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulatory system, connective tissue and internal organs function as a whole body unit.
Osteopaths may be able to help with:
Back and neck pain
Pelvic pain (including pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain)
