Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. Its 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.
To an osteopath, for your body to work well, its structure must also work well.
The stresses and strains of life often result in aches and pains that are the first signal that something is now quite right. What makes this problem more complex is what is that whilst pain may appear localised it may have it origin elsewhere in the body. We will seek out the answers for you and help you on the road to recovery.
When you visit an osteopath for the first time, a full medical case history will be taken and you will be given a physical examination. You will normally be asked to remove some items of your clothing and asked to perform some simple movements in order to assess your presenting symptom(s). Orthopedic and neurological examinations may be included. A diagnosis is formulated and each patient is treated as an individual.
Treatment often includes a variety of hands on techniques that will be explained to you before asking for your consent.
In order for us to deliver the best possible treatment for you, it may be necessary to refer for medical imaging, blood tests or to the other healthcare practitioners.
If you have any questions before, during or after treatment please do not hesitate to ask.

"I am passionate about the benefits of remedial massage and bodywork. Chronic pain conditions and injuries respond very well to massage techniques; restrictions in soft tissue can cause a variety of problems and have to be released before stretching and strengthening programmes are effective."
