PROGRAMME SUMMARY

Osteopathy combines a scientific knowledge of orthodox medical sciences with specialised methods of evaluation and manual treatment. It is a skilled and gentle therapy, involving techniques of soft tissue massage and joint manipulation.  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.

Over 30,000 people every day visit an osteopath suffering from a variety of conditions including neck or back pain, joint or muscular pain, sports injuries, recurring headaches and more. Many patients are pregnant mothers, unsettled children, or those with work strain, or pain and stiffness related to advancing years.

Whatever your age and no matter what challenges you may have with your health, there is probably something an osteopath can do to help.  Call us today to find out more.
