Osteopaths believe everyone can benefit from a tailored, whole-person approach to health. We are Allied Healthcare Professionals who take time to understand your individual history, circumstances and unique physiology, to support you to be as healthy as you can be.
Osteopaths provide safe, effective treatment and care that aims to promote the health of patients. Using manual therapy, health advice and sometimes exercise, tailored to the needs of the individual, people of all ages see osteopaths, from babies to the elderly.
As highly trained healthcare professionals, osteopaths are experts in the musculoskeletal (MSK) system – that is the muscles, joints and associated tissues and their relationship with other systems of the body. Rosi and Ian use a combination of manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation and stretching, together with advice and exercise rehabilitation.
People who visit an osteopath consistently report high satisfaction with the care they receive, expressing high confidence in the treatment and advice of their osteopath, with rates in excess of 90% for both satisfaction and trust. Osteopaths also work closely with other healthcare professionals such as consultants, GPs, nurses, midwives and physiotherapists.
Conditions we can treat include:
- Sciatica / lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Joint Pain (hips, elbows, ankles, shoulders)
- Sport- or work-specific complaints
Often it can be the case that pain presenting in one area is in fact caused elsewhere; our Initial Consultation allows us to take a full history and treat you as an individual and not just a pre-existing diagnosis.
