Osteopathy is used by people of all ages who suffer from pain, tackling complaints ranging from sports and work-related injuries to arthritis, sciatica and migraine. The osteopath's role is to alleviate pain and improve the patient's function and mobility. Osteopathy recognizes that much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in our body's structure and function. Osteopaths diagnose and treat problems with muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints to help the body's natural healing ability. This way osteopaths avoid performing traditional symptomatic therapy. What good is it for example.
to loosen up a joint, if the muscles and connective tissues around this part still struggle? Exactly by looking at the body as a whole and work their way into the root causes of the symptoms, osteopaths achieve effective and lasting results. This is often seen already after a short course of osteopathic treatment. Thus the treatment itself is not finished before the osteopathy so to speak, has made itself redundant. Once the optimal balance in the body is restored, the osteopath namely advises patients about the tools and opportunities - it can, for example be exercises that are required to maintain this optimal functioning.

Physiotherapy is a health care profession directed at evaluating, restoring and maintaining physical function of the body. Acupuncture works to help maintain our body’s equilibrium. It involves the use of very fine needles on specific points of the body to regulate the flow of ‘qi’(sometimes translated as energy) in the body.
