Osteopathy and Manual Therapy

Osteopathy incorporates a variety of manual therapy techniques that can be effective in treating musculoskeletal conditions. Techniques include:
  • Soft tissue mobilisation
  • Myofascial release
  • Muscle Energy Technique (MET)
  • Lymphatic techniques
  • Joint articulation and mobilisation

Osteopaths undergo a minimum of 4 years training, which incorporates over 1,000 hours of hands-on clinical training. This high level of training enables practitioners to become skilled in
applying manual therapy techniques safely and effectively, and the ability to adapt techniques to treat specific patient populations.
