This is a brief overview of what we do at Wexford Osteopaths; please use the index bar above if you want more information on any aspect of our work.
Osteopathy is a complete healthcare system that sees the body as an interrelated organism; we assess how the body is functioning and where it is not doing so well then our job is to alleviate strains on the body to make it work better.
Registered osteopaths have spent 4 years in a full time accredited institution studying the body and the way it works.
Osteopathy is the recognised and established science of human mechanics; a system of diagnosis and treatment which lays the main emphasis on the structural and mechanical problems of the body.
Osteopathy is a safe and natural way of diagnosing and treating a multitude of conditions that result in pain or discomfort.
It focuses mainly on the musculo-skeletal systems of the body (muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints etc.). However, osteopathy is NOT confined to the study of backs, which is a common misconception - although osteopaths do treat a lot of them!
