Osteopathy is the science of human mechanics. It is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment that lays emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. It is essentially a natural therapy. 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 to it by disease.

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.
