Osteopathy

Osteopathy provides a means to treat and prevent health problems by manually manipulating the skin, muscles and joints. It has been practiced in the UK since the early 20th century and is regulated by the General Osteopathic Council, with whom all practising osteopaths have to be registered. Osteopathy is used to treat lower back pain, sports injuries, arthritis, neck pain and problems with posture. Some osteopaths also treat other disorders such as headaches, migraines and period pains.
