Welcome to C B Osteopathy!

Osteopathy is a system of manual diagnosis and treatment suitable for a wide range of medical conditions and problems. It recognises the importance of the inter-relationship between the structure and function of the human body.

By using touch, physical manipulation, stretching and soft tissue techniques, osteopathy addresses the restrictions and dysfunctions to help provide optimal conditions for healing.

What To Expect

Osteopathy

At the first consultation a full medical case history will be conducted. It is common practice for osteopaths to initially do a full body assessment to establish if the cause of your problem originates elsewhere. You will be asked to dress down to under garments, so please feel free to wear vest tops, shorts, or swim wear (gowns can also be provided).

An examination of the specific problematic area will be carried out. Findings will then be discussed and a treatment plan agreed.

Is It Suitable For Me?

Osteopathy has the potential to help every one of all ages, from all walks of life. Even if you have an existing medical condition this additional treatment can be very beneficial.

If after your first consultation it is felt that osteopathic treatment would not be suitable at this time, we will refer to other healthcare professionals, in both the orthodox and complementary fields, to ensure the appropriate care is received.
