Osteopathy Works

A large number of new patients are recommended by word of mouth & we treat a variety of painful conditions. Our reputation is based on patient experience which is very important to us. Recommendations also come from local GPs, midwives, personal trainers & hospital consultants. Our free assessments give you a chance to decide if Osteopathy is right for you with no obligation and no signing up for a specific number of appointments. If a couple of sessions is all you need – we’re happy!

Pills Are Not Always Necessary

Your doctor may well give you pills to treat your ache, pain or muscular injury and sometimes they are effective. But often when you stop taking the pills – the pain returns. An osteopath won’t give you pills, but may well cure your pain. Why not take your pain to an osteopath?

First Appointment? No Need for Nerves

You may be nervous about your first visit but there really is no need. Our osteopaths are primary health care providers & highly skilled. They use various gentle techniques according to your particular condition including:

  • Deep Tissue Massage                    01
  • Soft Tissue Stretching
  • Mobilisation
  • Manipulation
  • Ultra Sound
  • Cranial
  • K Taping (if necessary)
  • Home exercises

All new patients are asked to complete a simple personal history form. Your osteopath needs to know about any previous medical problems, current medication and of course, most importantly, details of the condition that you need help with now.

During your initial consultation your osteopath will:

  • Spend time getting to know you & your medical history
  • Perform a comprehensive medical examination
  • Ask you to perform some simple movements
  • Discuss diagnosis & treatment options with you
  • Appropriate treatment begins
  • Arrange private specialist investigations if necessary ie MRI or X rays

If you would prefer please feel free to bring a friend or family member for moral support. However many, now pain-free patients, often wonder why they left it so long to get treatment!

Relax!! You’ll Wonder Why You Left It So Long!

Your First Osteopathy Appointment:  All new patients are asked to complete a simple personal history form. Your osteopath needs to know about any previous medical problems, current medication and of course, most importantly, details of the condition that you need help with now.

During the initial consultation your osteopath will spend time getting to know you and will perform a comprehensive examination, using various orthopaedic, neurological and medical techniques to help determine the origin of pain. Your osteopath will then decide upon the most effective treatment, if necessary, for your condition.

Osteopathic treatment involves manual techniques such as deep tissue massage, soft tissue stretching, mobilisation, and manipulation and sometimes ultra sound. This helps reduce excessive scar formation, reduce pain, improve elasticity and mobility of muscles, joints, and spine. Depending on your condition you may be given home exercises to do to increase your strength and flexibility. If necessary and only with your permission your osteopath will refer you to your GP or an Orthopaedic Consultant.

Our osteopaths appreciate that a first time visit for treatment may be daunting but please be reassured – there may be some soreness after but usually no more than after physical exercise. If you would prefer please feel free to bring a friend or family member for moral support. However many, now pain-free patients, often wonder why they left it so long to get treatment! 

It is difficult to predict how many appointments you may need but as a general rule, acute conditions may need only 2-3 treatments, whilst long standing, chronic conditions may need longer. Some patients find it beneficial to pop in for an MOT once in a while to help maintain optimum fitness.
