  Five Things You May Not Know About Osteopathy.

1. Osteopaths are Allied Healthcare Professionals (AHPs).

2. We are tightly regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC).

3. We are able to assess and diagnose a range of musculoskeletal problems or signpost you onto other branches of healthcare such as endocrinology, cardiology, rheumatology or to your GP if we feel your problem has a systemic root cause.

4. We are a branch of complementary medicine that focuses on the unity of all systems of the body. The patient is seen as the whole sum of all parts instead of a narrow focus on the area of pain or discomfort which more often is the result of an issue elsewhere in the body.

5. An osteopath will not only address easing the current painful issue, but will also address how to prevent future recurrences and improve health.

  A Few Other Things You Probably Already Know About Osteopathy.

  • Osteopathy is appropriate for all sexes and ages. It is effective for pregnant women to restore the body's balance after pregnancy, for babies as a gentle way to ease any of the tension built up in utero or during the birth process, for older people who find moving or balance more difficult as they age and for people in sedentary or active jobs! 

  • Osteopathy can be used for prevention. In much the same way that brushing your teeth prevents cavities, many musculoskeletal ailments can be avoided with preventative health measures such as osteopathy.

  • More people are turning to osteopathy because their current approach relies too heavily on taking medication, which can often mask symptoms rather than promote healing. Although, always check with your GP before stopping any medications.
