  • What is osteopathy?
    Osteopathy is a hands-on, medical speciality that incorporates assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the body’s tendons, muscles, joints, discs and nerves in a way that enables the body to regain individual function and improve posture.
  • What is the difference between an osteopath, chiropractor and physiotherapist?
    The million-dollar question! Since these practices are frequently confused, here is a very broad overview of the difference between the disciplines. What must be considered is that the main objective for each profession is to restore optimum health in the patient. Philosophically speaking, chiropractors use an approach that seeks to correct vertebral imbalances and will practise regular spinal manipulation to improve neurological outflow. On the contrary, physiotherapists typically do not use hands-on techniques at all, seeking to regain freedom of movement through prescribed exercises. Osteopaths, however, encompass an even broader perspective of the human body and are trained to feel the subtle and larger physical motions in the body enabling a tailored treatment. Often strong techniques such as joint manipulation are involved but complemented by many other techniques to bring about a positive outcome.
  • What should I wear?
    Ideally please wear comfortable clothing and if you are arriving in workwear it may be useful to bring a gym kit or shorts.
