Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions which has been established since the 1800s
Osteopathy works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments, viscera and connective tissues functioning smoothly together. Osteopathy takes a holistic, whole-body approach to healthcare.

In helping with recovery from injury to alleviating everyday aches and pains, his aim is to restore health to his patients and enable them to continue doing the things in life that they love whether that is competing in the Olympics or walking the dog.
