What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a form of musculoskeletal manual therapy. This means it focuses specifically on the muscles and bones and how they work together in a patient’s body.

I have been going to Guy Gold for 16 years and have found his approach nothing short of miraculous. His approach is highly systematic and based on a very thorough knowledge of the human body.

Osteopaths undertake extensive anatomical and physiological training (including at least five years of study at university) that enables them to use spinal manipulation and massage techniques to improve health and relieve pain. Because it is a non-invasive treatment, it is safe for people of all ages.

What can Osteopathy help with?

Many different types of people can benefit from Osteopathic treatment including people dealing with injuries, the elderly, athletes and children. Osteopathy can help with ailments including joint pain such as hip, knee, wrist and uncomplicated neck pain. It is effective for arthritic pain, frozen shoulder and tennis elbow arising from associated conditions in the back and neck, circulatory problems, sciatica, and headaches arising from the neck.

Osteopaths are qualified to work with children as well as pre- and post-natal women. Osteopaths are trained to screen for medical conditions and will tell you if you need to see another health professional such as your doctor or midwife.
