OSTEOPATHY is a recognised, safe, manual therapy used to diagnose and treat abnormalities in the function of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments). The principle of osteopathy is to work with the patient's own healing mechanism to restore balance and function throughout the whole body and alleviate pain following injury, disease or stress. After treatment patients' often report an increased sense of well-being.
Osteopaths use a variety of techniques, which include stretching and massage of the muscles and manipulation of the joints. Occasionally joints are 'clicked' to improve joint mobility. The osteopath can give advice on posture, movement, the correct seating for work stations, exercises and joint care.
Osteopaths work under the principle that there may be a number of contributing factors to the symptoms and may work in other areas of the body not just the symptomatic area. Osteopaths believe that the healthly balance and function of the musculoskeletal framework of the body is essential to whole body health. For example, a sprained ankle may cause a limp which in turn causes other parts of the body to compensate causing pain or restricted mobility in other areas.

non-manipulative techniques could help soothe and relax your baby.
Patients often report feeling very relaxed with this form of treatment.
