Osteopathy: Osteopathy is an established, recognized system of diagnosis and treatment that lays its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. It recognizes that much of the pain and disability from which we suffer, stem from abnormalities in the function of the body structure, as well as damage caused by diseases. Osteopathy uses many of the diagnostic procedures involved in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis. Its main strengths, however, lie in the unique way in which each patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint and the manual methods of treatment applied to suit the needs of each individual.

Why see an Osteopath? Although osteopaths are often associated with their ability to treat back problems, they do, in fact, treat many other conditions. Osteopaths assess and treat many of the factors contributing to a disturbed state of natural health. Patients are regarded as individuals with their own unique requirements for health. Treatment is designed to stimulate the body's own natural healing processes.

What happens when you come to our Osteopathic Clinic? The aim of our practice is to provide a high professional standard in a relaxed and friendly environment. When you visit for the first time you will receive a thorough initial consultation, which will include an assessment of your general health and the condition for which treatment is being considered. Osteopathy is patient centred which means that a course of treatment will be agreed in accordance with the needs of each individual patient.

Osteopathic Treatment: Osteopaths use their hands to carry out treatment using a variety of techniques according to the problem and age of each individual (with certain techniques not being appropriate for everyone). These methods range from soft tissue 'massage' techniques working with muscles, ligaments and connective tissue, to rhythmic joint movements which can move through to the high velocity thrust techniques which makes the 'click' sound which some may be familiar with. Painkillers may offer short-term relief but have a tendency to just mask the real problem and can have a number of side-effects if overused. For many people, osteopathic treatment proves a more effective, healthier way to reduce pain as it seeks to deal with the underlying cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.

We treat all kinds of conditions including: Arthritis, Sciatica, Back & Neck Pain, Headaches / Migraine, Frozen Shoulder, Hip & Knee Pain, Whiplash & Sporting Injuries.
