Osteopathy is a recognised form of primary care regulated by the General Osteopathic Council. Osteopaths use a case history alongside an examination to determine a diagnosis.
One of the greatest tools that an osteopath will possess is that of palpation (what they can feel with their hands). This helps detect tissue dysfunction through tenderness, asymmetry, restricted motion and tissue texture changes.
Once a clinical impression has been made, and a point of dysfunction determined, an osteopath will use a hands on approach to ease the dysfunction through means of manipulation, gentle rhythmic mobilizations, massage, stretches and other forms of manual therapy, therefore helping return the body to homeostasis (equal balance of the structure and function of the body and its systems).
