We help restore your body’s ability to heal and we help you to help yourself.
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and hands-on treatment for a wide range of conditions. We work on the structure of the body, based on the principle that healthy well-being depends on the whole musculo-skeletal system functioning smoothly. That includes the joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves everywhere in the body. It’s not just about treating your symptoms or treating the painful area, we work to identify the underlying cause and to help you to recover your full pain-free mobility.
Osteopaths are known to be ‘back pain specialists’ and it is true that back pain is a very frequent complaint but we treat aches and pains everywhere in the body using the same skills and techniques as we apply to back pain.
It’s also very important to help you learn some self-care strategies, to find out what factors in your life are contributing to your problem and to show you how to look after yourself in the future. Your treatment plan always includes advice on lifestyle, posture, work activities, exercise and healthy living.
All osteopaths are registered with the General Osteopathic Council, which regulates the profession and protects patients.
Osteopaths are highly skilled practitioners with sound clinical experience, committed to lifelong learning.
Osteopathy treats each person as an individual and recognises the effect of all aspects of that person’s life on their state of health.
