Osteopathy is for pain relief. I'm a registered Osteopath and I treat teenagers and adults of all ages. I use very gentle manipulation, mobilisation or massage to relieve pain and stiffness in muscles and joints and address postural problems. I don’t just treat the part of the body which is in pain or is problematic, I look at pain in the context of the whole body.


IMPORTANT: I AM NOW WORKING AGAIN. PLEASE SEE THE SECTION ON COVID 19 AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HOMEPAGE OF MY WEBSITE FOR DETAILS OF MY COVID INFECTION PREVENTION MEASURES.

WHAT DO OSTEOPATHS DO?

It is well known that Osteopaths treat joint, muscle and nerve pain but a frequent misconception is that we only treat the back. In fact, I manipulate some of the smallest joints in the body: for example in the hands, feet and skull. My patients also come to see me for shoulder, elbow and wrist pain, as well as hip, knee and ankle problems. I do, of course, also help patients with spinal pain. The lower back and neck are the most common areas I treat, which includes problems such as sciatica and whiplash.

I often see patients after they have had accidents or head injuries. Another common problem I treat is chronic pain caused, for example, by posture at work, arthritis or an old injury. Osteopathic treatment can also benefit other areas of the body such as the circulatory system and therefore the blood flow to the tissues.

In summary, Osteopathy specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of muscular and skeletal problems. I usually give patients exercises as well as preventative and postural advice.


MY QUALIFICATIONS

I graduated in 1996 from the British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy (now called the British College of Osteopathic Medicine). I studied full-time for 4 years to gain a Bachelor of Science in Osteopathic Medicine as well as Diplomas in Osteopathy and Naturopathy. During our training, as well as studying physiology and anatomy, we develop a finely tuned sense of touch called palpation. This enables us to feel very subtle differences in the qualities of tissues in the body. We learn how to release strains or tensions to help alleviate pain or trauma. Once qualified, all registered Osteopaths are obliged to continue their studies every year. As a result of this study, I am now a fellow of the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy. I enjoy my job immensely and have been fortunate enough to have worked in New Zealand as well as the south of England. I have treated children of all ages throughout more than 20 years of practice.


TREATMENT

 I am a registered Osteopath and I treat teenagers and adults of all ages. I use very gentle manipulation, mobilisation or massage to relieve pain and stiffness in muscles and joints and address postural problems. I don’t just treat the part of the body which is in pain or is problematic, I look at pain in the context of the whole body. For example, compensatory areas of the body may require as much treatment as the area which is most painful.

I practice a variety of gentle osteopathic techniques which include cranial osteopathy. Cranial osteopathy is a safe and especially gentle form of osteopathy which treats the whole body, not just the head, although we do often treat patients with headaches. It is the subtlest type of osteopathic technique and therefore especially appropriate for patients of all ages who are sensitive to treatment. For further information about cranial osteopathy, please visit this website: www.scco.ac.

The first time I see a patient, I take a thorough medical history which includes a history of the current problem. I will then examine the area of pain or tension as well as your posture. The gentle techniques I use during treatment are adjusted according to each individuals' needs. You are always welcome to bring a chaperone with you when you come for a treatment and teenagers under 16 need to have an adult to accompany them.
