Osteopathy is a practice based on the system that the body’s well-being is based on muscular skeletal, blood, nerve and fluid health, working and functioning together. Osteopathy works with the body’s structure to restore a state of balance for the bodies’ self-healing and to function well. This is achieved by using adjustments, manipulation, massage, stretching and movement to restore health and function.
Aims of treatment are to increase mobility of joints, relieve muscular tension and to improve blood, nerve and fluid health. Promoting recovery and maintaining this level of health to avoid recurrence of symptoms.
In promoting functional movement and a healthy, pain free lifestyle, for the body to function at its peak in physical movement, at 1st Care Osteopathy, our osteopathy is integrated with ‘Applied Functional Science’ and Acupuncture.
