Osteopathy is a recognised health therapy in the UK and is widely accepted by the major health insurance companies.  Osteopathic treatment aims to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.  It encourages healthy movement in joints, muscles and tendons by correcting mechanical imbalances.
As a primary health practitioner I am aiming to help you find the answers of the following questions:
  • What is happening in your body?
  • How long it will take to get better?
  • What are all the options for management?
  • What can you do for it?
  • What can I as an osteopath do for it?
  • Is there anything concerning that needs attention?
  • What your physical findings, X-rays and scans really mean?

FAQ

You do not need the referral of a doctor to be seen by an osteopath at the Cedars Heath Club, although some patients do come to us following GP advice.

Treatment techniques usually consist of gentle to firm joint manipulation aiming to improve the range of movement in restricted joints.  Soft tissue and muscle energy techniques are often used as well.
