What We Treat

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 within the body.

Osteopathy is a gentle and effective hands-on approach to healthcare, based on the principle that the way your body moves influences how it functions. Osteopaths are highly competent healthcare professionals, recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently.

Not just for backs! Osteopathy can be used to treat a huge range of musculoskeletal conditions including neck pain, work-related postural problems, sciatica, frozen shoulder, pregnancy-related aches and pains, sports injuries, headaches and the symptoms of arthritis.
