Osteopathy is an established and recognised patient focused manual approach to restoring, maintaining and promoting physical and psychosocial well-being.
Osteopathy is recognised to treat a variety of medical conditions including generalised aches and pains, arthritis, neckache, backache and sciatica. Pain from other joints and conditions may also be treated (please see our comprehensive list below).
Osteopaths improve the body’s function by working on the joints, muscles and ligaments to stimulate blood flow for oxygenation and repair and modulating the effects of the nervous system, enabling a reduction in pain.
Osteopathy is a healthcare profession that requires degree training including an intensive four years’ study of anatomy, physiology, pathology, clinical neurology, nutrition, sports rehabilitation, paediatrics and orthopaedics plus pharmacology and biomechanics, as well as at least 1,000 hours of clinical training experience with patients within private clinics. All Osteopaths in the UK have been regulated by law since 1993 by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). Osteopaths are Allied Healthcare Professionals (AHPs) and therefore have titles that are recognised by NHS England and protected by law. All our Osteopaths at our practice have a full Osteopathic degree, are fully insured and are registered with the GOsC.
