Shoulder Treatment


Osteopathy is a widely recognised system of diagnosis and treatment which is regulated by law. It is a non-invasive, manual treatment, that addresses total body health. It focuses on treating and strengthening the musculo-skeletal framework, which includes the spine, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons. 


Osteopathic Approach

Osteopathy's philosophy is a unique, holistic (whole body) approach to healthcare. All parts of the body function together in an integrated manner. If one part of the body is restricted, then the rest of the body must adapt and compensate for this. Osteopaths do not simply focus on treating the problem area, but use manual techniques to balance all systems of the body to provide overall good health and wellbeing.

Treatment is different for every patient, depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis.


Osteopaths use a broad range of gentle and firm hands-on techniques including soft tissue massage and joint articulation to release tension, stretch muscles, help relieve pain and mobilise your joints. These techniques are designed to influence muscles, ligaments, joints and the nerve and blood supply to those tissues.

Osteopathic Training

All Osteopaths have completed a four year course. During this time they will have studied;

  • Anatomy - fundamental to our work 

  • Orthapaedics - understanding disease processes of the bony structures of the body.

  • Neurology - intrepreting certain symptoms and tests related to the nervous system.

  • Physiology - study of the body at a cellular level to understand why the body may fail.

  • Radiology - to comprehend images on X-rays and MRI scans.

  • Medicine - understanding disease processes and how they present in the patient.

Are Osteopaths regulated by law?

Yes. Osteopathy is regulated by statute and the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). Anyone not registered may not call themselves an Osteopath - it is a criminal offence to do so. Osteopaths are required to renew their registration each year, including completion of mandatory continuous professional development activities. Regulation was introduced to deliver consistent, high standards of patient care. This ensures by that all practising Osteopaths are competent, not only in their osteopathic skills but also in their medical diagnosis.
