Structural Osteopathy refers to the kind of care that most people commonly expect from osteopaths. It involves the diagnosis and treatment of problems in the musculoskeletal system, in order to improve function. Structural osteopathy looks at the wider impact of musculoskeletal problems, such as injuries or disorders affecting the muscles, joints, nerves and tendons, and evaluates how they might be affecting wellbeing as a whole. Through analysis and manipulation, your osteopath will seek to treat the root cause of the problem, as well as ease the presenting symptoms, with the aim of reducing the likelihood of recurrence.
