Osteopathy was the first of the complimentary healthcare professions to gain statutory recognition with the Osteopathy Act of 1993. The General Osteopathic Council regulates the profession along similar lines to the General Medical Council.

I have recognition with most major health insurance companies including: AXA PPP, Norwich Union and Simple Life etc.

All Osteopaths and Podiatrists are regulated by the GOsC and the HCPC respectively.

Osteopaths are required to renew their registration yearly. Podiatrists renew their registration every two years. Both the GOsC and HCPC, check that Osteopaths and Podiatrists have current professional indemnity insurance, remain in good health and of good character, and have met mandatory continued professional development requirements.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy recognizes the importance of the link between the structure of the human body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on the body's skeleton and joint function along with the underlying muscles, soft tissue and internal organs. Osteopaths consider each person as an individual. Utilizing a highly developed sense of touch, they identify problem areas of the body. Using gentle stretching and mobilizing techniques as well as manipulating joints, an osteopath works with the body to create the perfect conditions to facilitate the healing process.

Treatment usually consists of a combination of soft-tissue releasing techniques, and some specific adjustments affecting joints and soft-tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments). A wide variety of conditions can thus find relief through osteopathy. It also benefits those wishing to enhance their performance and function at their optimum.

Advice is also given on rehabilitation exercise and nutritional guidance.

During your first visit

The first visit will include a case history, to find out about the nature of your complaint. 

This entails taking a general medical history, usually followed by a physical examination. You may be asked to undertake a series of straightforward movements, to help isolate the problem area(s). Standard physical tests may also be carried out, for example: joint reflex and muscle testing.

Once an initial assessment is made, your problem will be discussed with you and if osteopathy would be of benefit in treating your condition, you will be informed of what is recommended in the way of treatment and management. Osteopathic treatment will then begin, incorporating a wide range of manipulation techniques.
