What makes osteopathy unique?

Osteopathy views the body in a holistic way, identifying and treating the source of an issue, not just its symptoms.

Treatment is always holistic – we look at the whole body being related and treat not just your painful spot but also above and below the region.

For example: if you have knee pain we would look at the biomechanics of your foot and ankle as well as your hip, pelvis and lower back to understand the true origin of your problem and its maintaining factors. Treatment options would include massage, gentle joint work, dry needling, stretching and much more.
