There are a number of reasons why patients consult an Osteopath: relief of pain, rehabilitation after injury, health concerns. Osteopaths are classed as primary healthcare professionals and can provide advice on a range of different health concerns – this might include a referral to another health profession if appropriate.

Osteopaths are commonly known for treating back pain and postural problems including changes due to pregnancy, caused by driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis and minor sports injuries.
Osteopathy can also help with conditions such as digestive issues, circulatory problems, fibromyalgia, neuralgia and sleeping problems and can also help manage the symptoms of many others – please feel free to request a free 15 minute appointment to discuss whether we can help you.
