Osteopathy aims to improve the function of the body and therefore the patient as a whole by influencing the structural components, such as muscles, joints, ligaments and bones. It also encourages the flow of blood and lymphatics to facilitate the body to heal itself using its own built in mechanisms.
Osteopathic treatment uses a wide variety of techniques, which can include working on ligaments, joints and muscles to help improve your function and decrease your pain. You will receive treatment that is appropriate for you as an individual and helps you improve as quickly as possible.

Functional Movement Screen is a system of ranking and grading that documents movement patterns that are fundamental to normal function. By recording these patterns the FMS identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are problems that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness leading to recurrent injuries and lowered performance.
The Functional Movement Screen generates a Score which is used to track progress and highlights, in rank order, those movement issues which need to be corrected with individualised corrective movements. As clinicians and specialists in this area we monitor your FMS score to track your progress and determine those exercises that will be most effective to restore stability and joint mobility.
