Why try Osteopathy?

Too often we see people waddle, stagger or limp into our store with an ache or pain in some part of their anatomy.  Often they have been living with the pain for weeks, months or even years!

Where do they go for help?

For many it’s a visit to their GP followed by prescriptions for painkillers or anti-inflammatories.  Temporary relief can be achieved, but very often the underlying cause will be lurking, until the next time they bend to pick up the cat or over stretch for the chocolate biscuits at the back of the cupboard.  Then it’s back down to the surgery …

Is there an alternative?

For the majority of us our first port of call for a painful tooth is the dentist.  Isn’t it?

And first port of call for a painful back, shoulder, neck, hip, knee (you get the idea) should be an osteopath.mctim

Why an osteopath?

The musculoskeletal system is the osteopath’s bread and butter, as is teeth to the dentist.  It is what they are trained for, identifying and finding the route cause of a problem.

Spending a little time and money on seeing the right expert is worth its weight in gold.  Less time off work, more time being active.  Less pain, better mobility.  It makes sense.
