What is Osteopathy?
Shaun Anderson Osteopath
Osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and manual treatment that is recognised by the British Medical Association as a discrete clinical discipline. It is a hands-on, holistic manual therapy that treats musculoskeletal problems and other functional disorders. It was developed in America in the 1870’s by Dr Andrew Taylor Still and has developed to the point where it is now widely recognised as one of the most scientifically validated and effective ‘complementary’ therapies.
Osteopathic Treatment
Shaun Anderson Osteopath
Osteopaths use their hands, both to investigate the underlying causes of pain and to carry out treatment using a variety of manipulative techniques. These may include the comfortable stretching of muscle and ligament, rhythmic joint movements or joint manipulation to improve the range of movement of a joint.

Gentle releasing techniques are often used, particularly when treating children or elderly patients. Osteopaths employ a wide range of treatment methods depending on your age, physique and particular problem.
