Osteopathy is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment, which is a safe and natural approach to healthcare. It focuses on the musculoskeletal system; the bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues and the way in which this inter-relates to the body as a whole. Our treatment is individually tailored towards every patient and diagnosis is carried out through discussion, observation and touch. Gentle stretching and mobilising techniques as well as joint manipulation are used to help facilitate healing. All osteopaths must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
We believe in the ethos of a hands on approach. We use soft and deep tissue massage, stretches, joint mobilisations, manipulations and various other techniques to gently and safely bring about healthy changes.
Who do you treat?
Our patients range from children to older adults, athletes to weekend warriors. Conditions treated may include joint pain, back problems, neck pain, frozen shoulders, sports injuries, arthritic pains, osteoarthritis and much more. We treat using traditional structural and sports massage.
What do you treat?
Many conditions may benefit from osteopathic treatment. However, you do not need to be in pain to visit an osteopath. You may require postural alignment due to imbalances caused by either recreational or occupational activities, or even to release tension that has built up in your body as a consequence of stress. If symptoms persists we will refer you to your GP.
