Osteopathy is scientifically based on classical medical subject areas, such as anatomy, physiology, neurology, pathology and biomechanics.

With a background in these subject areas, the approach is to analyse how the different parts of the living body influence each other and to remove any possible dysfunctions that prevent the body from functioning properly. When the cause of the dysfunction is determined, osteopathic techniques are utilized to correct the body via the structures involved. The goal is to make all the structures move freely in relation to each other, to normalise the circulation of blood, and in that way to stimulate the body to regain its normal function and heal itself.

Osteopathy differentiates from many other forms of manual treatment by examining the entire patient and not merely the area where there is a presenting symptom. By so doing, the connections that are the basis for the patient’s symptoms are discovered, and the patient’s body is then helped to re-establish its optimal function as a lasting solution rather than a treatment of symptoms which usually has a shortsighted effect.

This may mean that two patients who come to the clinic with nearly identical symptoms may end up receiving two very different treatments, since the mechanisms that are the cause of the symptoms are usually very different.
