Osteopaths have rigorous training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, clinical practice, clinical competence, pharmacology, psychology and sociology. Osteopaths develop a highly refined sense of touch 'palpation' which they use for diagnosis and treatment, and they are skilled in the manipulation of the body, making precise physical adjustments to the musculoskeletal system.
Osteopathy is a manual therapy with a comprehensive system of diagnosis and treatment using touch, massage and physical manipulation to work with the structure and function of the body. When the structure of the body is correctly aligned it can achieve an optimum state of wellness. In this sense, the role of the osteopath is to facilitate the body's own healing mechanisms.
