Osteopathy

Can we help you?

Osteopathy is best known for back pain, but osteopaths can treat most pain or restriction. Feel free to phone and ask how it may help with your symptoms. Treatment aims to speed up healing of injuries and strains so is good for sports injuries too. Katharine is able to give you advice on avoiding injuries and holds workshops at the practice on stretching and avoiding injury. She has a broad clinical experience which ranges from treating back pain to treating singers’ diaphragms to improve their voices!

Please phone 01892 526456 for more information.

What happens in a session?

The details of your symptoms are taken, as well as any previous problems and the state of your general health. Observations are made of your body standing, moving and lying down. After a relaxing treatment, advice and any necessary exercises may be given. To see the sort of questions you will be asked have a look at the case history. Every effort is made to keep you well informed at TWHealth. We also offer rehabilitation such as stretching and preventative advice.

Please phone 01892 526456 for more information.

Can my GP refer me?

Many GPs work alongside or even employ osteopaths in their practice. Osteopathy is now acknowledged by GPs as being safe and effective in the area of back pain. It is advised as part of a management plan including exercise and painkillers. (Search on UK Back pain Exercise And Manipulation randomised trial for more information.)

Sports injuries

We are happy to treat sports injuries at TWHealth. Often releasing any old injuries that are hanging around gives excellent results with symptoms that appear unrelated. Within your session stretching and exercise advice is available. We work closely with a local Pilates instructor for an integrated approach to getting fit again. Why Pilates? Even athletes such as Pat Cash have found that good fitness levels don’t mean that you can use your body efficiently. Try it and feel muscles you never knew you had get reawakened…I did!

Mums and babies

Many postural changes occur as you move into the second and third trimester of your pregnancy. Repeated sickness, giving birth, as well as lifting cots and breastfeeding can all challenge a mothers’ body. Osteopathy can help you adapt to these changes and prepare for the delivery by keeping your back and hips mobile. We don’t offer a crèche facility at the practice but you are welcome to bring children of all ages. Some books and toys are available to keep children busy while you or they have a treatment. The waiting room is big enough for a partner, buggy and several children.
