What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a system of assessing, diagnosing, treating and preventing a wide range of health problems.

Osteopaths are regulated health professionals, who have completed a minimum of a 4 year degree. The study focuses on anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology , general medical screening and osteopathic techniques. Osteopaths are bound by regulations and standards produced by General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). All Osteopaths are registered, DBS checked and hold a first aid qualification; you’re in safe hands!

Osteopaths use a number of varied techniques and methods to treat their patients; a typical appointment may include some soft tissue techniques, such as massage, articulation of joints, myofascial techniques and HVLAT (High velocity, low amplitude thrust techniques; commonly associated with ‘cracking’ joints), muscle energy techniques, cranial techniques and visceral techniques. The treatment is not intended to cause any pain and we adapt to every patient.

Osteopaths are primary care practitioners, which means you do not need a referral to see one; this means that Osteopaths take a detailed medical and case history from every patient to ensure their treatment is safe and appropriate. Osteopaths are trained to check for signs of serious conditions they cannot treat.  In these circumstances, they should inform you of what they believe is the problem and refer you to see your GP or hospital for further investigations.

Most people visit osteopaths because they are in pain. Being well doesn’t just mean being free of pain or illness.
