How can we help?
Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by moving, stretching and massaging a person's muscles and joints. Osteopathy is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together. Osteopaths treat the whole body. Looking at how it’s structure effects the way it functions. Through massage and manipulation Osteopaths aim to rebalance and realigned the body. Working with the muscles, joints and nervous system.
Most people believe Osteopaths just treat the back but actually they can treat the whole body. They treat a range of conditions and ages. Sciatica, headaches, sports injuries, tennis elbow, knee problems, foot and ankle complaints to name a few. They can also treat pregnant women, babies and the elderly.
