Osteopathy was first developed by a field surgeon during the American Civil war in 1874. His detailed study of anatomy and fascination   with 'all things mechanical' led him to launch a system of manual medicine based on the body working as a whole.    

                                    
Modern osteopathy involves an intensive five year university training program, similar to a medical degree.   Our approach, however, is less about controlling symptoms but more on treating causes particularly of complex, chronic conditions.  By taking this line, many people are offered effective solutions with long term results.


Where appropriate, osteopathy can achieve excellent results for people with HEADACHES, NECK & BACK PAIN, SHOULDER PROBLEMS, SCIATICA and many other complaints.

In some instances, X-Rays or, on occasions, MRI scans are organised.          

Depending on findings, it may be necessary to refer in order to seek the opinion of medical specialists (eg. Neuro surgeon).
