The objective of treatment is to strengthen the musculoskeletal framework, improve circulation and correct altered biomechanics.

By using a range of ‘hands-on’ techniques to move, stretch, massage and physically manipulate a person’s muscles and joints, Osteopathy is designed to facilitate a smoother relationship and better function of the body’s systems.

By taking the time to understand patients and their unique combination of symptoms, medical history and lifestyle, osteopaths are able to formulate a treatment plan that will achieve the best outcome, which may sometimes include onward referral.

Osteopaths have been regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) since 1993 and are recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of persistent low back pain.
