Osteopathy is a safe and holistic treatment regulated by the General Osteopathic Council. It is an Allied Health Profession and osteopaths also work in musculoskeletal departments of the NHS.

Osteopathy is a non-invasive manual therapy. It involves spinal and joint manipulation to improve bodily alignment and natural healing, soft tissue work such as massage and myofascial release, and dry needling. These treatments improve mobility, flexibility and alignment, reducing pain and improving function.

Osteopaths are experts in diagnosing and resolving musculoskeletal issues, making osteopathy an ideal treatment for problems such as back and neck pain, sprains and strains, and sports injuries. Osteopaths are also First Contact Practitioners, who can assess and refer you for other treatments where more appropriate.
