About Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a gentle and effective hands-on approach to healthcare which places  emphasis on the muscloskeletal system.

 

Osteopathy treats and prevents a wide range of health problems. Osteopaths use a combination of movement, stretching, targeted deep tissue massage and manipulation of a person’s muscles and joints to improve function, relieve pain and aid recovery..Osteopaths are highly competent healthcare professionals, recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently.

They are skilled in assessing the mechanics of the whole body, in particular the spine and treat a variety of conditions including:

 

  • Neck and back pain

  • Arthritis

  • Sciatica

  • Headaches

  • Joint and muscular pain

  • Vertigo

  • Repetitive strain and overuse injuries

  • Pregnancy-related discomfort

  • Tendonitis (rozen shoulder)

  • Sports injuries.
