Osteopathy can help treat a variety of conditions:
• Arthritic pain

• Backache and back pain
• Minor sports injuries
• Joint pain
• Pre/Post natal care
- Cranial Osteopathy
Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment that encourages the release of stresses and tensions throughout the body, including the head. It is a gentle yet extremely effective approach and may be used in a wide range of conditions for people of all ages, from birth to the more mature.
What can cranial osteopaths treat?
While it can be highly effective at relieving symptoms cranial osteopathy aims to treat the whole person not just the condition, so a very wide range of situations may benefit from treatment. These may include back and neck pain; joint pain and sports injuries; head pain, migraines and sinus problems; stress; period pain; digestive difficulties; and treatment may also benefit general health and well-being.
In babies and children many childhood problems such as crying, trapped wind, sleeping and feeding difficulties may be helped. If you are not sure whether a problem is suitable for osteopathic treatment, please call the clinic and our osteopath will be happy to discuss your concerns.
