What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a hands-on approach to diagnosing, treating and preventing musculoskeletal and other health problems.

Osteopaths believe that your health and wellbeing depend on your whole body working well and in balance. An injury, strain or other problem that affects your musculoskeletal framework can be painful, but it can also affect your alignment, change the way you move and disturb your overall health and wellbeing.

Osteopaths promote wellbeing by helping your body to help itself. We work to improve the mobility of stiff joints, relieve muscle tension, enhance blood and nerve supply to tissues, address alignment problems and imbalances, and support the body’s own healing mechanisms. We also provide advice on posture and exercise in order to aid recovery, promote wellbeing and prevent symptoms from recurring.

Osteopaths take the time to understand you and your unique combination of symptoms, your medical history and your lifestyle. This helps us to identify and address the cause of your problem, not just the symptoms you are experiencing. We can then formulate a treatment plan and agree with you the best way forward.

We have a variety of treatment techniques available to us, including targeted therapeutic massage, stretching and releasing of tight musculature and fascia, articulation and manipulation of joints, muscle energy techniques, harmonics and breathing exercises. Every treatment is different and is tailored to your needs as an individual.

Regulation

The title ‘osteopath’ is protected by law. It is against the law for anyone to call themselves an osteopath in the UK unless they are registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). The GOsC sets and promotes high standards of competency, conduct and safety for the profession.

Osteopaths are required to renew their GOsC registration each year. As part of this process, the GOsC checks they have the correct insurance, are meeting professional development requirements, and remain in good health.
