 acu-pageOsteopathy is a discrete medical specialty which concentrates on the manual treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.

Osteopaths use an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology combined with osteopathic principals to assess and diagnose problems within the body. Treatment involves manual techniques including joint stretching, articulation, manipulation and osteopathic soft tissue. The osteopath's assessment, diagnosis and treatment is patient centred and as such is tailored to you as an individual.

We will take into account factors such as your job, posture, sports and previous injuries when treating and giving advice. By law, all osteopaths must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council. To gain registration, osteopaths must have graduated from a recognised college, having undergone a four year degree course involving intensive medical training and clinical practice.
