What are Osteopaths?


Ankle Mobilisation

Osteopaths are trained professionals skilled in the diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions, with specialist training in muscular skeletal dysfuntions (i.e. bone, muscle, joints and soft tissue problems). They are primary healthcare practitioners; complementary to other medical practices, promoting optimal health through their understanding of the interrelationships between the muscular skeletal system and the rest of the body.

Treatment is administered through a wide variety of modalities. These can include:

  • Soft tissue massage techniques
  • Manipulation of joints
  • Joint mobilisation
  • Stretching techniques
  • Exercise and lifestyle advice
In adjunction to this John is a qualified Acupuncturist (BSc Hons) providing:
  • Acupuncture
  • Electro-acupuncture
  • Cupping
  • Far infrared therapy in the form of moxibustion
  • Taping

Initial treatment will tend to follow the steps below lasting 1hr:

Follow up treatments will last 45 minutes.

In order to accurately assess the areas to be treated you may be asked to remove a certain amount of clothing. You are therefore asked to wear suitable underwear or shorts.
Osteopaths treat people, not conditions – working to improve bodily functions by treating their structure. They work holistically looking at the whole person.

The most common conditions treated are:
• back and neck pain
• shoulder and arm problems
• pelvis, hip and leg problems
• sports and other injuries

Patients have found osteopathy helpful for many other conditions. If you want to find out more, please contact the clinic.
