AT TARA NORTHEY OSTEOPATHY & PILATES
SOUTHFIELDS | WIMBLEDON PARK
WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
Osteopathy is a gentle yet effective method of alternative healthcare, which is based on diagnosing and treating the musculoskeletal system.
Osteopaths not only treat pain, but diagnose what caused the pain to help stop it from happening again.
Similar to Physiotherapists, Osteopaths treat the whole body. Mainly focussed on treating the soft tissue, including muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.
Osteopaths treat through manual (hands-on) therapy. Using techniques, such as;
soft tissue, similar to massage
articulation of joints
stretches and manipulation of joints (where a click may be heard)
