As well as treating muscle spasms, sprains, neuralgia, chronic backache and arthritis related pain, we see children, babies and pregnant and post partum mums; we see patients for fibromyalgia, migraine prevention, digestion problems and minor sports injuries. We are one of the only Osteopathic Clinics in the area who specialise in using Laser Therapy, used by the top football, rugby, sporting teams as well as in hospitals and clinics worldwide. Laser Therapy has been used to reduce acute, chronic and neuropathic pain, to help stimulate tissue repair and to resolve inflammation.
The content of this site is subject to the following statement:
Osteopathy is a primary healthcare profession regulated by the Osteopaths Act 1993. We are bound by the voluntary guidelines of the Advertising Standards Authority which prohibit unsubstantiated claims in literature or on websites. An “unsubstantiated claim” is considered to be any claim to cure a condition where that claim has not been subject to specific scientific research.
Osteopathic practice is based on the philosophy that people are unique individuals, and thus, osteopaths do not just treat a specific condition, e.g.: “a tennis elbow”, we aim to understand why that particular patient has that problem at this time, the issues that contributed to it, its future prevention as well as considering imbalances that may be causing other, less symptomatic, but possibly longer term issues – we then work towards treating the body to improve overall function for that individual as best as we are able by the application of osteopathic techniques informed by the principles of osteopathy.
Osteopathic treatment is based on the relationship between the structure and function of the body, which we consider to be unique to each patient.
From this perspective, osteopaths assess and treat a wide range of healthcare issues in both adults and children. Any discussions regarding osteopathy on this website are not, in the main, based on randomised, controlled clinical trials as there are currently low numbers of these sorts of trials.
Where conditions are named in this site it is either because there is limited research into that particular condition, or it serves to illustrate the kinds of symptoms which might respond to osteopathic treatment.
Nothing in this site should be taken as a claim to cure a specific condition.
Because of limitations regarding unsubstantiated claims, you may find that some well known issues and problems for which babies, children and adults see osteopaths are not mentioned.
If you have a query as to whether osteopathy might be able to help, please contact us.
