What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a safe and natural approach to health care. Patients may be treated of problems ranging from the trauma of birth, childhood illnesses, adolescent pain, pregnancy-related discomfort to the arthritis of the elderly.
  • Acute and chronic neck and back pain
  • Hip pain, trapped nerves and sciatica
  • Repetitive strain injuries including elbow, wrist and shoulder
  • Tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Knee dysfunction, including childhood knee pain and sports injuries
  • Headaches
  • Asthma, to improve lung capacity
  • Childhood problems such as colic-type symptoms, repeating coughs and colds, 'glue ear'.
Other conditions
Pregnancy-related Back Pain The hormone changes during pregnancy as well as the change to the antenatal posture may cause many women problems in the skeletal muscles. Osteopathy uses the body’s inherent healing properties to improve mechanical neck and back pain. During child care the posture becomes even more frequently compromised and the correct advice and treatment is important to prevent long-term problems.

Sports Injuries Each sporting discipline requires specialized demands on the body which may result in a pattern of injury or overstrain. Detailed knowledge of biomechanics enables the practitioner to give the sports person an accurate diagnosis and formulate a rehabilitation program. Advice on a warm up and stretching may be given. I attend research meetings every three months National Council for Osteopathic Research and read British Osteopathic Sports Care Association information to keep ahead.
