Osteopathy is a system of manual medicine concerned with the structural and mechanical aspects of the body. The Osteopaths aim is to restore ideal movement, positioning and functioning not only of thespine but to the whole framework of the body. Through careful examination Osteopaths aim to find the primary cause of the underlying condition and then create the correct environment to allow the body to heal.
Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, Osteopathy at Osteoworx emphasizes improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illnessin the first place. Most people would rather be healthy and avoid illness, if they could. This is one of the main reasons for over a century of Osteopathy as a popular choice for alternative treatment.
Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help yourbody's own healing mechanisms. Practice is located at 10 Canon St in the West End of Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan. Once in Canon St, no.10 is the last house on the left before you start to go down the hill to Broad St.
