Osteopathy is a branch of medicine that works with your skeleton, connective tissues, muscles and ligaments. It is based on the idea that if all these structures work together in harmony, good health will follow. Osteopaths can treat a wide range of conditions and can help all kinds of people, including the young, the old and pregnant women. Wherever possible, an osteopath will try to cure your condition without the use of medication or surgery.
Osteopathy is recognised as an effective medical treatment and can be accessed privately and also through the NHS in some areas of the UK. At our clinic we offer private osteopathy treatment to self-referring patients.
Fully Qualified Osteopaths
Our friendly and experienced osteopaths are fully qualified and registered with the General Osteopathic Council. This means you can relax knowing you are safe in their hands. Generally speaking, osteopaths can diagnose and treat the same sort of conditions as physiotherapists. For example, they can treat conditions like:
- back, neck, hip and shoulder pain
- postural strains
- sports injuries
- arthritic pain
- work injuries
- overuse and repetitive strain injuries
- …and more
What Happens At An Osteopathy Appointment?
At your first osteopathy appointment, your osteopath will talk to you about your symptoms, you’re your diet and your lifestyle. They will then use touch to help diagnose areas of weakness or strain in your body’s tissues. Once they have an accurate diagnosis, they will discuss a treatment plan, which may also include dietary advice and an exercise prescription.
