What? Osteopaths don't only treat backs. Whatever your ache or pain, Osteopaths are trained to diagnose your problem and give you appropriate advice and treatment.
Who? Osteopathy is suitable for all. From the elderly and newborn and from pregnant women to sports people.
Why? Osteopathy is safe and effective. Government guidelines recommend Osteopathy for persistent low back pain (NICE, 2009)
But why go to an Osteopath in particular? Osteopaths take time to treat the individual.
Osteopathic treatment does not simply focus on the symptoms but treats the parts of the body that have caused the symptoms. Osteopathy can help you understand better what is causing your discomfort and give you appropriate and practical advice to avoid recurrence of pain. Our aim is to get you back to your normal activities as soon as possible.
