OSTEOPATHY

Osteopaths are allied healthcare professionals who are experts in conditions that effect the musculoskeletal system (joints, muscles and associated tissues).  

Osteopaths help to resolve pain and restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability through a wide range of hands-on techniques.  These are used together with exercise, education and advice designed to help you relieve or manage your pain, keep active and maintain the best of your health.  

Osteopaths recognise the importance of the 'whole person approach' to health and well-being, which includes consideration of the patient's general lifestyle.  At the core is the patient's involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.  

All treatments are individual following a thorough assessment and physical examination.  We always provide advice and exercises alongside treatment as this is the most effective way to facilitate your recovery. 

All our Osteopaths are registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), which means they have completed a minimum of four years degree level training (BSc).  To remain registered they must comply with strict regulatory requirements and high standards of professional practice as well as maintain their continual professional development CPD).
