recognises the importance of the link between structure and function
in the human body, which leads to a focus on the bodys skeleton
and joint function along with underlying muscles, soft tissue
and internal organs. Osteopaths have a holistic approach and will
look at the whole person in order to treat the cause, rather than
just symptoms of pain and other conditions.
osteopaths we use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and
a variety of soft tissue techniques to increase the mobility of
joints, relieve muscle tension, enhance the blood and nerve supply
to tissues, and to help the bodys own healing mechanisms.
We work to restore the body to a state of balance, where possible
without the use of drugs or surgery.

specialists and back pain is what we treat a lot of the
time. We treat people of any age from the elderly to the newborn
and from pregnant women to sports people. Below are examples of
many conditions we can help with:
