British Osteopathic Association

Osteopathy is an established system of health care that focuses on treatment of the physical body, the joints, muscles and connective tissue, using ‘hands on’ techniques such as tactile pressure, stretching and manipulation.

An osteopath’s main emphasis is on the structural integrity of the body, recognising that most of our pain and illness stems from abnormalities in the function of the body structure.

Osteopaths train and develop a highly skilled sense of touch. They use their hands to identify and treat areas of the body that are painful, injured, or prone to recurrent episodes of illness. Their expertise in treating back pain is sought by people both young and old and from all occupations and walks of life.
