What is osteopathy?

Many people ask ‘What is Osteopathy? and ‘How is it different to a physio or chiropractor?’

Osteopathy is a manual medicine designed to help achieve optimal health. Unlike other manual therapies, it is principle-based. This means that it understands that you are an individual, and people with seemingly the same issue wouldn’t necessarily receive the same treatment.

For example 3 people experiencing low back pain have different movement patterns, lifestyles and hence different root causes of the problems. The remedy could be very different for each.

Person Treatment
1 Proprioceptive and strengthening exercises
2 Re-hydration
3 Chain-reaction biomechanics

Manual therapy is very effective and even more so when combined with the right nutrition. Nutrition provides the body with the building blocks needed to heal and function.

At Everything’s Connected, our Progressive Osteopaths are trained in both nutrition and osteopathy. The pain-free treatments are based on Applied Functional Science (AFS).

Customised treatments occur while your body is in natural and functional positions, often in an upright treatment table (the true stretch). This style of treatment is designed to identify the root cause of a problem rather than just treating symptoms.

A wide range of conditions can be helped by using osteopathy, nutrition or a combination:

At Everything’s connected we have a passion for treating challenging conditions. We are experienced in creating movement and nutrition programs to help preserve joints and get people moving again.
