Osteopath - Understanding your Body
Osteopathy is concerned with the arrangements of the parts of the body and their movements. The task of the osteopath is to understand what has gone wrong and why, and to use his or her hands to allow the organism to overcome its malfunction. Mechanical disorders have a profound effect on the functioning of all body systems, and are important not only in the case of spinal and limb pains.
In babies and children it is particularly important to pay attention to the body, not only for immediate help with distress and disease, but to encourage optimum health for a lifetime.
Osteopathic treatment is, by definition, manual. In young patients the methods used are nearly always very gentle, but nonetheless powerful, requiring special skill and knowledge.
We recommend the follow three practices. These practitioners specialise in mother and
baby support particularly around the release of the jaw after a tongue tie or traumatic birth.
