What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a form of alternative healthcare that emphasizes the connection between the structure and function of the body, as well as the body’s ability to heal itself.

Osteopathic practitioners place great emphasis on the relationship between the organs and the musculoskeletal system as well as on treating the whole individual rather than just the disease or problematic area.

With skilled palpation and a detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics the professionals at Hawkesbury Therapy can assess and restore balance within and between all the systems of people of all ages presenting with any type of orthopedic condition – which are the conditions related to bone, muscle and joint problems.

The practitioners use a wide variety of hands-on approaches, by using massages and manipulations in order to reduce and resolve strains, stress and dysfunction in all areas of the body.

Education is an important part of osteopathy. An osteopathic practitioner will teach their patients on how to care for their injuries. He/She will teach stretches that may be done outside of the clinic so that therapy may be continued after your appointments and also incite the patient as much as they can on how the pain and disease got itself there so it may be prevented in the future.
