What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy primarily focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of a patient’s symptoms.  Osteopaths use manual therapy techniques to treat the patient’s complaint.

Its philosophy is based on:

  • identifying the root cause of the problem and restore the optimal function of the body.
  • aiding the body’s intrinsic ability to heal itself without the prescription of medicines or surgery.

The Osteopath will assess the patient to identify the root cause of the patient’s complaint and formulate an individualised treatment program.

 At Reading OsteoCare, we do not just treat the area of pain/complaint, but treat the body as a whole using hands-on-techniques to balance all the systems of the body, providing overall good health and wellbeing.
