Osteopathy is not a treatment that merely deals with the symptoms. It focuses on the integral structure of your body, evaluating how bones, muscles and connective tissues work together. Fixing the causes of conditions and restoring your natural balance.
Osteopaths take time to listen and understand their patients and recognise that everyone is unique and individual. This means that treatment will be unique and individual to the patient based on a thorough assessment including variety of factors such as, the nature of the problem, the age of the patient, their lifestyle and health history for example.
Osteopathy is a safe and regulated profession that aims to assess, treat and prevent a wide range of conditions and health problems such as:-
General aches and pains
Acute & chronic backache
Cervicogenic headache (arising from the neck)
Prevention of migraines and cervicogenic headaches
Shoulder and elbow pain
Circulatory problems, cramp
Inability to relax

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.
