move better, feel better

helping your body help itself


People want me to help them for many different reasons. Have a look at the links on this page for information about conditions I’m often asked about.

I’ll always tell you how likely it is that you’ll feel better and how long it will take. I’ll explain whether my work is more useful in helping you to manage your situation or whether I can work directly on your problem.

If we’re unable to work on a specific condition, Osteopaths concentrate on creating the circumstances that will allow you to manage the effects rather than on a ‘cure’. Osteopathic treatment to help you manage some of the long term effects of asthma is a good example of this indirect approach. There’s no evidence that Osteopathy can stop or help with your asthma, but I can work on some of the joint stiffness and muscle tightness that asthma can cause. If you’re unsure about whether Osteopathy can help you, just phone the direct line to speak to me.
