Treatment is tailored to the individual and can be effective in treating a wide range of conditions without the need for drugs or surgery.
Osteopathy is a safe and natural approach to healthcare which doesn’t require drugs or surgical intervention. Osteopaths work on the principle that the health, wellbeing and fitness of an individual are directly related to the effective functioning of the skeleton, musculature and underlying connective tissues within the body.
As manual therapists, osteopaths will look to guide a patient back to health by effecting change in their body tissues, employing a range of non-invasive, manual therapy techniques such as massage, stretching, joint manipulation and articulation. In additional to their manual ‘hands on’ treatment, osteopaths can also offer advice on lifestyle factors such as exercise, posture and workplace set-up in the office.
Osteopaths treat all types of pain, restriction or injury, in all areas of the body and in people of all ages.
Osteopaths understand how painful and debilitating pain and restriction can be and how much these things can encroach into the enjoyment and function of our daily lives.
Our aim is to alleviate you from pain, increase your mobility and return you to health. We want to get you back on track as soon as possible – back to doing the things that matter to you.
Osteopaths understand that everyone is different, which is why we focus on treating the patient, not the condition. Osteopaths aren’t restricted to a prescribed set of guidelines, instead they will tailor their treatment to you and your particular circumstances.
If you think we may be able to help then give us a call – you won’t need a GP referral. Although we do take referrals from GPs, as primary healthcare practitioners our patients are able to seek consultation with us directly.
If you’ve never seen an osteopath before and would like to know more about what we do before you commit to a full consultation, then maybe you could take advantage of our offer of a free 15-min pre-consultation chat with an osteopath to help you decide.
