Osteopaths are often thought of as ‘back specialists’ but in reality we work to help with a wide variety of problems. We may be able to help you if you have pain that has arisen due to problems with any of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, discs, nerves or joints of your body. Osteopathic treatment does not just target symptoms it also aims to treat the parts of the body that have caused the symptoms. We take a holistic approach and believe that your whole body will work well if your body is in good structural balance. FAQs.
