Osteopath St Albans
What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosing and treating problems with the body’s structure and mechanics.
Osteopaths believe that the body’s innate ability to heal itself can be encouraged and significantly accelerated by osteopathic treatment. They also believe that an efficient structural system can promote long term health and wellbeing and ultimately prevent future injury, dysfunction and pain.
