Osteopathy can help relieve chronic or minor problems

Osteopathy is a primary healthcare system, complementary to other medical practices. It is suitable for almost anyone and can contribute to alleviating an enormous range of conditions. 

Osteopaths primarily work through the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, mostly on muscles and joints, and pay special attention to how the internal organs affect, and are affected by that system. Osteopathy can help relieve chronic or minor problems, provide one-off relief from pain and dysfunction or contribute to the management of long term complaints. Osteopaths treat the whole person so at the first consultation a detailed case history is compiled, followed by a thorough examination.  The main tool for diagnosis is touch (palpation). The osteopath will also closely observe movement.  A wide range of gentle, safe non-invasive, manual techniques such as deep tissue massage is used and the patient may be advised on exercise, posture or diet. Some patients may need only one treatment; others have a course of therapy or return periodically for the long-term management of a condition.

Osteopathy is available Tuesday and Thursday
