We treat a wide range of medical conditions and injuries from work, recreation and sports related activities. People of all ages and backgrounds can be treated with osteopathy, including the elderly, pregnant women, sports people and children.
Osteopaths are body mechanics.
Through treatment we promote the smooth functioning of all joints and soft tissues in the body. We don’t just treat the painful area, we treat the body as a whole and provide advice on how you can keep your body mechanically well.
Osteopaths are trained to recognise when treatment is not appropriate. We will therefore refer you to your GP if required, to ensure you receive the most appropriate care for your condition.
You're in good hands.
It typically takes 4 years to become a qualified osteopath, and requires over 1,000 hours of clinical training. We are also required to maintain our skills through ongoing training and professional development.
Osteopathy is a regulated profession, with all osteopaths required by law to register with the General Osteopathic Council, who ensure that all osteopaths operate to high professional standards. It is a criminal offence to claim to be an osteopath otherwise.
