Osteopathy is a recognised system of diagnosis and manual treatment for many dysfunctions of the human body. It is distinctive in that it recognises much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in the function of the body structure as well as damage caused to it by disease.

 

The osteopath will examine you clinically and, along with the information obtained during your case history, come to a diagnosis that is right for you.

 

Osteopathy is strongly patient focused, which means the osteopath will treat you as an individual and tailor the treatment to your specific needs.

Osteopaths are trained to treat a wide variety of health problems experienced by all ages (from new borns through to old age).

What conditions do osteopaths treat?

Osteopaths undertake rigorous four to five-year degree programmes based on thorough clinical and medical training. Osteopaths have the skills to assess when osteopathic treatment is not suitable. In these cases medical referral for further investigation may be advisable.


The British Medical Association recognises osteopathy as a discrete clinical discipline. When visiting an osteopath you have the same safeguards as when visiting your doctor or dentist.

What qualifications do osteopaths have?

Osteopaths consider each person as an individual. Depending on the patient’s problem, working with their hands, osteopaths use a variety of stretching, mobilising and manipulative techniques. With added exercise and health advice, osteopaths help to reduce the symptoms and improve your health and quality of life.
