Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together. This approach emphasises the integration of the musculoskeletal system with other body systems and the influence that impaired function of each has on the other.  It also seeks to empower patients in assisting their recovery to good health.

Osteopaths are Allied Health Professionals (AHP) and recognised by the NHS and insurance companies. Osteopathy can complement other health care systems and is effective in the treatment or management of musculoskeletal conditions including and associated with:

  • Acute and chronic pain

  • Back pain, disc injuries, sciatica

  • Neck pain, trapped nerves

  • Painful, weak shoulders, frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement, rotator cuff injuries 

  • Hypermobility related disorders

  • Stiff and painful joints, management of osteoarthritis and arthritis

  • Knee and hip pain

  • Gym, running, golf and other sports related injuries

  • Foot and ankle pain

  • Wrist and hand pain including carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive strain injuries 

  • Certain types of headaches 

  • Tendon pain and bursitis

  • Pregnancy related conditions, pelvic, lower back, postural problems

  • Dysfunctional breathing mechanics

To an Osteopath, for your body to work well, its structure must also work well. So osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
