Osteopaths treat more than back pain and is suitable for people of all ages; from birth and beyond. Osteopathy focuses on the diagnosis, treatment & prevention of a broad range of health conditions. Helping alleviate acute & chronic pain to preventative care
Osteopaths use hand-on manual therapy to stretch, massage, move and manipulate joints. The aim of treatment is to increase mobility, relieve muscular tension and enhance blood and nerve supply to the tissues in the body; in order to restore balance and help to alleviate pain without the use of drugs or surgery.
In addition, your osteopath may offer exercises, advice and strategies to help support your treatment and aid your recovery, giving you the control back on managing your symptoms at home.
Osteopaths are regulated, primary healthcare professionals who will take the time to listen to your symptoms and encourage you to talk about all aspects of your health – you can see an osteopath with multiple complaints as osteopaths treat the body as a whole.
Treatment may also include orthopaedic testing, neurological & blood pressure screening to assist in your diagnosis and treatment.

Baby & Childrens Osteopathy
As a baby’s skeleton is softer than an adult’s, the osteopath will use very gentle osteopathic treatments for the treatment of babies and children. Gentle soft tissue massage and joint articulation aims to increase the blood flow and stimulate the nerve supply to all the tissues of the body.
Osteopathic treatment may be used to help reduce joint pains which some children experience, especially if they experience a rapid growth spurt. By using gentle stretching and massage to reduce any tension around the joints and advising on activity and sports, this postural discomfort can sometimes be reduced.
Cranial osteopathy is a gentle osteopathic approach. Treatment usually focuses on, but is not limited to, the cranium and sacrum in order to release tensions and restrictions in the body to optimise health and well-being. People of all ages can be treated in this way, however, it is a particularly effective approach in the treatment of babies, young children and during pregnancy.
