What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It 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.
Treatment helps to increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, reduce pain, enhance blood supply to the tissues, and thereby helping the body to heal.
What conditions will an Osteopath help?
- Back, neck and joint pain
- Problems with the pelvis, hips and legs
- Arthritic discomfort
- Postural problems
- Changes to posture in pregnancy

When will you need an Osteopath?
Osteopathy may be recommended for a variety of reasons, including muscle and joint aches, pains and stiffness, nerve pain such as sciatica, headaches and sport/activity related pain and injury. Osteopathy care is suitable for nearly all ages, from young children to the elderly.
What will happen at your first appointment?
Your osteopath will need to feel for any tightness in the muscles and stiffness in the joints and may need to touch these areas to identify problems.
This comprehensive analysis means that you will be given a clear understanding of the cause of your particular problem and the level of treatment required.
