Osteopathy is the first complementary therapy to be recognised as a Primary Healthcare Profession and is recognised by the British Medical Council as a distinct clinical discipline.
It is an approach to medicine that emphasises the mechanics of the human body. It is a modern, scientifically based system of diagnosis and treatment of faults which occur in the muscles, joints and associated tissues of the body. These faults, as well as causing localised pain, can also have far reaching effects upon the well being of the body as a whole.
Osteopaths use a variety of treatment techniques to correct these faults in order to improve function and restore mobility to areas of the body that are found to be abnormal. In this way, osteopathy aims to treat not just the injury itself, but also the causes and underlying problems that may have led to a painful condition. This can help to speed recovery and reduce the chances of recurrent injuries.
Patients consulting an Osteopath have the same safeguards and rights as when consulting a doctor or dentist. Osteopathy is a Statutorily regulated Primary Health Care Profession, and as such all Osteopaths are legally required to be registered with the governing body, The General Osteopathic Council Re-application for registration is required annually, and very stringent guidelines must be met before acceptance.
