Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that focuses on restoring the normal function of joints, muscles, and the spine in order to help the body heal itself. This is achieved through various techniques such as soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilization, and high-velocity thrusts. Osteopathy is not typically painful, though some soreness or stiffness may be experienced after treatment. One would benefit from osteopathic treatment because it aims to address the underlying causes of pain and discomfort, rather than just treating the symptoms.
