What is osteopathy? Find an Osteopath in Chalfont

Updated: May 14



Osteopathy is the method used to diagnose, treat and heal the body by stretching, moving and massaging an individual’s joints, bones and muscles. The main principle of osteopathy is that the wellbeing of the body depends on the joints, the muscles, ligaments and tissues all working together in harmony. If you require an osteopath in Chalfont then make sure to visit us at Rakhee Osteopathy, where our expert osteopaths will be able to meet your personal needs and requirements and will ensure that you have a comfortable and positive experience.


How does osteopathy work?


Our osteopath in Chalfont will use physical manipulation techniques, stretching and massaging, in order to help the body to heal, increase mobility in the joints, enhance blood supply to the tissues and relieve any muscle tension that you may be experiencing. Our osteopath in Chalfont uses a number of techniques, but we do not use surgery or any type of drugs to help you heal as we prefer a more holistic approach.


People often visit the osteopath when they are experiencing health conditions that affect their muscles. Therefore if you are suffering from lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, arthritis, sports injuries, hip or leg issues we should be able to help. If you are pregnant then you should always seek medical advice from your GP to see if it is safe for you to undergo osteopathy.
