Osteopathy Conditions we treat
A wide range of musculoskeletal disorders including back, neck and shoulder pain, headaches, and sport and work-related injuries respond especially well to osteopathic treatment.
Other commonly treated conditions include pregnancy care, migraine, asthma, arthritic pain, digestive disorders, muscle tears, slipped discs, trapped nerves and whiplash.
There are currently 3,700 osteopaths registered in the UK, seeing an estimated 25,000 patients a day.
A recent MRC trial comparing treatment options for lower back pain (UK BEAM Trial), found that spinal manipulation, added to GP care, is clinically effective and the most cost-efficient option for patients in the UK.
