Osteopathy is a distinctive and complete system of
health care, based on broad principles that "offer
a way of thinking and acting in relation to questions
of health and disease". Upon release of Mr. D'Urso's
care an Osteopathic practitioner will dedicate treatment
and healing to be of global relevance, rather than focusing
on one system or body part. The theory behind being
that to promote healthy functioning in a person, correcting
mechanical imbalances within and between the structures
of the body is required. By structures we mean the muscles,
bones, ligaments, organs, and fascia.
Osteopaths are highly trained (University based 5 year
double degree) practitioners who are able to diagnose,
treat, and offer rehabilitation advice to patients who
have recently completed care through Mr D'Urso. Following
patients who undergo varying surgical procedures, it
is imperative to resume a form of health care which
aims to increase mobility and strength, whilst decreasing
pain - Osteopathy can offer this immediately.

Upon visitation, an Osteopath will assess the patient
using palpation, Orthopaedic tests and active and passive
ranges of motion to determine their limitations. Treatment
begins immediately and usually carries techniques such
as soft tissue massage, articulation, adjustment manipulation,
stretching and counter-strain.
Treatment is non-invasive and usually gentle, making
it a viable option for patients who could be compromised
post surgery or for children and the elderly. Patients
who have had corrective surgery through Mr. D'Urso follow
up to see an Osteopath to further support and quantify
the changes, these specifically include muscle strength,
joint mobility, pain perception and finally general
