Who Benefits ?

At G&S Osteopathic Practice we like to think that we can help with a range of complaints and conditions. We treat people of any age, from babies a couple of weeks old to the elderly, including pregnant women.

If you are expecting we can help with easing some of the physical discomforts of pregnancy, preparing for the demands of labour and helping to recover after the birth.

For babies birth is one of the most stressful events of our lives. And many babies are born with odd shaped heads because of the mechanical strains placed on it. In the first few days baby’s head gradually loses the extreme moulded shape. But sometimes this unmoulding process is incomplete especially if the birth has been difficult and the baby may have to live with some very uncomfortable head and body stresses. This can cause crying, irritability, feeding difficulties, sickness and other symptoms. Cranial osteopathy may help with these.

As a child grows it can be prone to infections and ear infections, sinus and dental problems, behavioural problems and learning difficulties, headaches, asthma

We don’t consider aging an illness or an issue – and thanks to osteopathy you can look beyond pain killers for relief from stiffness and less acute stages of arthritis. At G&S Osteopathic Clinic we look at how to get rid of the underlying causes of pain because we believe everyone deserves to lead a full and active life at any age.

It’s a sad fact but 60% of the UK population will suffer from back pain at some stage during their lifetime. And problems that start in the back can bring on pain in the buttocks, groin, legs, arms, shoulders, neck and head. Most pains are down to mechanical disturbances of the spine postural strains, joint derangements and spinal disc injuries. Osteopathic treatment is often the most effective first line approach to these debilitating problems.

350 million working days a year are lost to sickness in Britain! What’s more, many are lost to occupational injuries. These can be caused by manual handling and lifting, forceful or repetitive movements and, particularly, unsuitable posture. We can advise on correct posture and back care as well as help with preventative exercises.

``Osteopathy is based on the perfection of Nature’s work. When all parts of the human body are in line we have health. The work of the osteopath is to adjust the body from the abnormal and health is the result of the normal condition``
