What is osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a safe and regulated profession that aims to assess, treat and prevent a wide range of conditions and health problems. Osteopaths treat more than back pain.
Our bodies have an innate ability to heal themselves. Osteopaths use a refined sense of touch to help them diagnose and can treat their patients using a wide range of gentle and non-painful techniques to aid this self-healing mechanism by restoring function to the body.
Osteopaths take time to listen and understand their patients and recognise that everyone is unique and individual. This means that treatment will be unique and individual to the patient based on a thorough assessment including variety of factors such as, the nature of the problem, the age of the patient, their lifestyle and health history etc.
Osteopaths are primary healthcare professionals and work along-side other healthcare professionals such as GPs, nurses and midwives to ensure you get the best care.
The General Osteopathic Council regulates all osteopaths in the UK and every osteopath is insured and fully CRB checked.
