What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy treatment cares for injuries to the spine and other joints in the body. Even healthy young people can have back and neck injuries. Osteopaths also successfully treat back problems that are put down to old age or wear and tear. These conditions where there is often little relief from other types of treatment.


For people with a long history of problems, periodic check ups can prevent recurrences and all that goes with them.

Why would I benefit from Osteopathy treatment?

As we get older, our joints begin to wear. This process is accelerated by injury, poor posture, working habits and prolonged sitting. Osteopathy treatment restores the movement int he affected joints, relieves pain and slows down the wear process. Maintaining healthy, flexible joints means you can work, care for your family and enjoy leisure activities without pain or restriction.


In the same way that many athletes are using Osteopathy to improve their body's work, a lot of people find an overall improvement in wellbeing as a result of their treatment.


If you want to be fit and active in later life, your back needs to be protected. Most people see the sense in dental check-ups, yet few realise their back needs the same kind of care.


“Even healthy young people can have back and neck injuries.”

Is Osteopathy regulated?

Osteopathy was the first complementary health care profession to gain statutory regulation by parliament by the passing of the 1993 Osteopaths Act, giving Osteopaths the same legal status as dentists and doctors.


This means that all Osteopaths are registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and must therfore adhere to a strict code of ethics laid out by the council, as well as undergo continual professional development.
