Our specialist mother and baby clinic means we see lots of babies and children as well as women throughout and following pregnancy.

In association with the charity Arthritis Action we are the only recognised osteopaths in Dorset to offer subsidised treatment for patients with arthritis. In many cases, recurrent pain is caused by degenerative changes to the body's framework. Although nobody can reverse the aging process, osteopathic treatment helps ease pain and improve mobility.
