Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well- being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together. For your body to work well, its structure must also work well. Osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
Case History and Examination
A full medical case history is taken at the first consultation to discuss symptoms and past medical history, including medication intake. If you have any x-rays or scans please bring these with you. On examination we will observe your posture and mobility, assessing the range of movements to particular joints, which will enable us to make a diagnosis.

Diagnosis and Treatment
We will give you a clear explanation of we have found (diagnosis), and discuss a treatment plan that is suitable for you. Treatment is hands-on and can involve soft tissue massage, articulation, manipulation of the joints and stretches. Self-help measures and advice on exercise may be offered to assist your recovery, and prevent reoccurrence or worsening of symptoms.
Unlike some practices we do not charge more for the initial consultation, and we do not ask patients to book and pay for a course of treatment in advance. Initial consultation and treatment combined is 30 minutes, admin charges will apply to send copies of medical notes for medico-legal investigations. Payments only by cash, cheque or Bacs.
