What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a way of finding, diagnosing and treating body parts which are damaged. This includes muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints. Osteopathy is used to balance the body in an efficient way, much like a well-tuned engine, to ensure it functions with minimum wear and tear. When this happens, you will have more energy for living, rather than suffering.

The Institute of Osteopathy

"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".

What osteopathy does:

  • Reduce tension in back and neck
  • Reduce joint pain
  • Reduce muscle pain
  • Reduce nerve pain
  • Increase range of motion
  • Increase blood flow

Potential side effects

Osteopathy, like other types of treatment, has associated side effects. These can vary from mild side effects, which are common, to moderate side effects, which are less common, to serious effects which are rare.

With limited side effects and a number of known benefits, our treatments can improve your life.
