What do osteopaths do?
Osteopaths diagnose and treat mainly structural or mechanical problems which occur in the body, typically following injury or stress. The aim is to provide symptom relief and support the biomechanical and physiological healing processes.
Osteopaths spend a minimum of 4 years in undergraduate training which includes in-depth study of human anatomy and physiology. They are therefore well placed to understand the relationship between the body’s systems, organs, joints and muscles and can treat patients in many different stages of health.
Osteopathy is a profession regulated by the General Osteopathic Council.

What to expect during a treatment with me?
In a typical Osteopathic session, I will start by asking you about your symptoms as well as your medical history and general health. For this reason, feel free to bring in any investigations such as imaging studies or their reports (XRAY, MRI, ultrasound etc). Following this, I will perform assessments to ascertain what is the cause of your symptoms (this generally involves some movements and non-invasive tests). This leads on to a discussion about the treatment options to best suit you. Last but the least, treatment takes place. Depending on the area you are experiencing symptoms in, you may be asked to uncover the area. For this reason, I generally advise to wear loose-fitting and comfortable clothes.
By the end of the session, it is common for me to recommend specific exercises or stretches you should perform in order to maintain the progress made during the treatment.
