What do Osteopaths treat

"No Osteopath ever cured anybody of anything"

This statement is attributed to Dr A.T. Still, the man who started Osteopathy. The body has the ability to heal itself.  If we cut ourselves, the cut gradually heals. The body is always trying to work to its best ability and correct or adapt to any issues.  Osteopathic treatment works with the body to address restrictions or barriers that are stopping the body from putting itself right.

At Northside Therapies we treat the person not the symptom.

Whether you are suffering from shoulder pain, headaches or back pain during pregnancy, your Osteopath will assess how your body is functioning and treat restrictions in the tissues of your body. The aim is to reduce your pain and help identify factors that contributed to the problem so that ongoing treatment is not required.
