Osteopaths are trained medical professionals who have gained a degree in osteopathy (MOst) which involves the study of musculoskeletal physiology, anatomy and pathology over a period of 4-5 years.
All osteopaths are fully insured, follow strict guidelines, have undergone enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks and must be registered with the Government’s regulatory body, the General Osteopathic Council (www.osteopathy.org.uk) in order to maintain excellent standard of practice.
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and hands-on treatment for a wide range of medical conditions which cause pain or discomfort. The main focus of treatment is on the musculoskeletal system (joints, muscles, ligaments, fascia etc). Osteopaths use many of the same diagnostic methods as conventional medicine to establish the cause of physical symptoms whilst taking any external impacting factors into account e.g. lifestyle, work, physical anomalies.
