Osteopath in Byron Bay
Pain is something many people live with on a daily basis and accept it as part of life. But with osteopathy, it can be managed or improved. When the body’s musculoskeletal system is not properly aligned it inhibits circulatory, lymphatic or nervous system function and therefore reduces the body’s ability to heal itself.
