Osteopathy

Osteopathy involves the detection and prevention of health issues by moving, stretching and massaging muscles and joints. We focus on how our patients' bones, muscles and ligaments function as a holistic whole.

The conditions that we can help you with include:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Neck pain and whiplash
  • Frozen or stiff shoulders
  • Tennis elbow
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Slipped discs
  • Sciatica
  • Trapped nerves
  • Hip, thigh or knee problems
  • Postural changes during pregnancy
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME)
  • Arthritis
  • Sinusitis

The value of osteopathy as we get older

Many people suffer from problems such as arthritis as we grow older, and although with conditions such as this a complete cure is not possible, osteopathy can make a huge difference and greatly enhance our quality of life.

Osteopathic care ensures that you understand your condition and are aware of any factors that may serve to aggravate it.

With careful management and the appropriate osteopathic treatment, living with long-term problems doesn’t have to mean suffering constant pain.

 

Osteopathy for repetitive strain injuries

Whether your work entails heavy lifting, long periods of sustained posture such as driving or sitting at a desk, or repeatedly performing the same actions, the outcome is fatigue and ultimately discomfort in muscles and joints. Not forgetting that housework and looking after children can be just as wearing.

Whatever your occupation, we will help to alleviate the fatiguing and painful effects on your body.
