Osteopathy is a hands-on treatment using an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics to adjust poor musculoskeletal function, allowing the body to heal naturally and efficiently. The practice of osteopathy is unique in that diagnosis and treatment is partially achieved by a highly developed sense of touch.
Osteopaths have to complete a 4-5 year full-time degree where they develop clinical skills to diagnose mechanical problems and refer on more serious cases if necessary. They are committed to furthering and updating their clinical knowledge through mandatory Continuing Professional Development.
All Osteopaths are registered with The General Osteopathic Council that was established under the Osteopathy Act (1993) to regulate Osteopathy in the UK.
Patients do not need a referral from their GP though Osteopathic treatment may be suggested by their Doctor
