Pain is a warning signal that something is wrong.

It is one of the body’s natural defence mechanisms to alert you to a problem, but it’s also there to stop you from damaging your body further. Look on it as a warning sign.

“Nature has placed in the front part of man, as he moves, all those parts which when struck cause him to feel pain; and this is felt in the joints of the legs, the forehead and the nose, and has been so devised for the preservation of man, because if such pain were not felt in these limbs they would be destroyed by the many blows they receive”
(Leonardo Da Vinci, thoughts on art and life)

Osteopathy has been recognised by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the NHS as an effective treatment for lower back pain.

As osteopaths we use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the nerve supply and blood supply to tissues. We will advise on posture and exercise and aim to promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.

Your body has a wonderful capacity for repair. An osteopaths skill is in the ability to facilitate this.

We have the time to listen to you, the skills to examine you and the techniques to help you.
