Head and Neck Pain

How can an Osteopath help?
Osteopaths can use a wide range of gentle manipulations depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis to reduce muscular tension in the neck and improve movement in the joints of the neck and upper back. We may gently massage the soft tissues or rhythmically “rock” the joints to release tension and sometimes we may gently manipulate the neck to move the joints and you may hear a “click”.

Back and Leg Pain

How can an Osteopath help?
Osteopaths are well known for treating back pain and patients report high satisfaction with treatment. There is good quality evidence supporting the beneficial effects of manipulation for back pain and the National Institutes for Clinical Excellence recommends osteopathy for sub-acute and chronic low back pain.

Foot and Ankle Pain

How can an Osteopath help?
Any musculoskeletal condition from head to toe can benefit from adjustment to make it work better. Depending on the diagnosis and your age and fitness we can use a variety of gentle massage and manipulative techniques to increase the mobility of the joints and the flexibility in the foot.
We will often look at muscles and joints in the lower limb and may treat any joint restrictions and muscle tightness we find there.
