Helping you back to health

Osteopathy

Who are we?

Osteopaths are highly trained Allied Health Professionals, recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently. We’re trained to screen for medical conditions and will advise you if you need to see another health professional, such as your GP or midwife. It takes a minimum of 4 years full time study to become a qualified osteopath, and requires over 1,000 hours of clinical experience.

We help you back to health

 

What does Osteopathy involve?

Osteopathic treatment aims to address your symptoms, relieve pain, improve function and promote healing, as well as reducing the likelihood of problems recurring.

We look at the whole patient to discover what factors are coming together to cause a problem. We want to find and tackle the cause rather than just easing symptoms.

We use hands-on treatments to stretch out muscles and tendons and to articulate joints. We use gentle balancing techniques including cranial osteopathy. We may give you specific exercises to help improve your function and health. Because it’s focused on you, treatment is as individual as you are.

When you come to see us, we’ll explain to you what we’re doing and why. We encourage you to ask us questions. It’s a team approach.

It’s suitable for people of all levels of physical fitness and occupation. As everyone is an individual, we treat you depending on your specific case and needs.
