Osteopathy is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment that lays its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body.  It is distinctive  in the fact that it recognises much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in the function of the body structure as well as damage caused by disease.

In 1993, osteopathy became the first major complimentary health care profession to be accorded statutory recognition under the 1993 Osteopaths act.  This has culminated in the opening of the statutory register of osteopaths by the General Osteopathic Council in May 1998.  Only those practitioners able to show that they have been in safe and competent practice of osteopathy will be allowed on the register and in the future all osteopaths will be trained in the same high rigorous standards.

Osteopathy uses many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis. Its main strength, however, lies in the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of the individual patient.
