Conditions We Treat
There are a wide range of conditions that osteopaths can help to treat. Find out more about how we might be able to help you.
A Whole Body Approach
Osteopaths spend four to five years training to understand the relationship between the body’s organs, joints and muscles and are experienced in treating disorders of the musculoskeletal structures throughout the whole body. Osteopathy is a person centred approach that strives to provide the optimum conditions for health by working with your body’s own healing mechanisms to achieve results.
Osteopaths see people of all ages, including pregnant women and elite athletes. The health risks associated with having osteopathic treatment are extremely low, if you have any concerns about the safety of your treatment your osteopath will be happy to discuss these with you.

Referral to Other Health Practitioners
As a primary healthcare professional your osteopath, in addition to their osteopathic skills, have been trained to undertake detailed medical histories and a comprehensive range of clinical examinations in an effort to diagnose the cause of your symptoms.
It is due to this extensive training that they are able to determine if you may need to be referred on for further tests to determine an accurate diagnosis, or if your condition may require the intervention of another health professional. When this happens your osteopath can write to your GP outlining their findings and requesting further investigations or referral to an appropriate consultant.
I was so anxious that the aches and pains I was experiencing would prevent me enjoying my retirement and spending time with my new grandchildren.
Gordon was so understanding - he listened to me and refused to accept that I had to just "put up with it". I exercise regularly now and although the aches come and go, I feel able to enjoy my life to the full. Thank you and see you soon!
