Is Pain Getting You Down? Are Injuries Holding You Back?
We understand how important it is to you to get through your day without having to suffer in pain and how normal tasks can seem impossible, especially when you are normally active and care free. Pain eventually wears you down to the point that it is just too much and something has to be done.
Osteopathy can help you get back to normal, get you out of pain and help you start enjoying life again. It is a medically recognised primary healthcare profession trusted by thousands of people around the UK and worldwide. According to the General Osteopathic Council, it is estimated that around 30,000 people see an osteopath on a daily basis.
When you come to see us we look at your body’s structure and how it works in order to determine the cause of your current problem. Then we use a number of hands on techniques such as massage, joint mobilisations and joint manipulations to improve your function and reduce your pain and get you back to working order.

Here are some of the most common complaints that we treat;
- Sciatica/Sciatic Pain
- Muscle aches and pains
- Back and neck pain or stiffness
- Shoulder injuries
- Postural problems
- Trapped Nerves
- Knee, foot and ankle problems.
An osteopath’s aim is to treat the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. For example, someone who has pain in the neck may have an imbalance in the pelvis which would alter the spinal curves and change the muscle lengths along the spine. This could then manifest as neck pain, headaches or pins and needles down the arm. Without addressing the cause the symptoms will not get better.

Osteopathy is a medically recognized primary healthcare service that specializes in preventing, diagnosing and treating musculo-skeletal pain associated disorders.
The study of osteopathy is a full time medical degree lasting 4 years. In order for an osteopath to practice they must first gain a minimum of 1000 hours of clinical experience plus pass a final clinical competence exam.
Therefore you can be assured that you are in good hands when you visit an osteopath. In order to practice, osteopaths have to be registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOSc), in the same way that G.P.’s are registered with the General Medical Council. It is illegal to use the title of “Osteopath” in the UK if you aren’t registered with the GOSc.
