What is osteopathy

Osteopathy offers hands-on treatment for the effects of accidents, falls, poor posture, strains, wear and tear, and pregnancy. Many people seek help specifically for backache, neck pain, headaches, shoulder and knee problems, and pinched nerves.

A wide variety of techniques are used to alleviate pain and restriction and promote a well-functioning body. These may include manipulation and mobilisation of joints, muscle release and stretching/strengthening, or cranial-sacral therapy. 

Osteopaths are front line health professionals and work with other registered health professionals including GP's, specialists and radiologists.

In New Zealand, osteopaths are regulated by the same laws as GP's and nurses.  If ACC registered, osteopaths can see ACC claims patients without referral from a doctor, and can refer for x-rays and on to other health professionals if required.
