Osteopathy is a complementary or alternative medicine (CAM) which aims to assess, treat and prevent a range of health issues by using combination of stretches, motions, targeted deep tissue massages and manipulation of a patient’s joints and muscles in order to improve not only function but to also relieve pain and aid with recovery.
Osteopaths aim to promote the restoration of normal function by helping the natural ability of the body to maintain itself. Indeed, according to osteopathy, the way muscles, bones, connective tissue, ligaments and internal structures work together is important for the wellbeing of an individual.
Understanding the patient and their unique combination of lifestyle, medical history and symptoms is all of part of osteopathy. In this way, osteopaths are able to make a diagnosis of the lack of function or pain and to formulate a treatment plan in order to achieve best outcome. Osteopaths work frequently with other health professionals, such as nurses or GP and other alternative medical practitioners. Prescription medications and other medical interventions can also be complemented by osteopathy.
GPs can safely refer their patients to an osteopath for treatment as advised by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE).
