WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?

Osteopathy is a recognised system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. Osteopaths use a combination of movement, stretching, deep-tissue massage and manipulation of the body’s muscles and joints to alleviate pain, restore function and promote recovery. Osteopaths consider the body as an integrated whole, with no single part working in isolation.

Who is it for?

Every day in the UK, around 30,000 people enjoy the great benefits of Osteopathy. Among them are:

  • Office professionals
  • Sports people
  • Manual/agricultural workers
  • Pregnant women
  • Teachers
  • Young people
  • The elderly

Patients may decide to see an osteopath independently or may be referred directly by their doctor.

What’s involved?

ASSESS

Taking the time to discuss your current problem along with an informal conversation about your general health, medical history and lifestyle.

U

DIAGNOSE

Observing your posture before conducting a gentle yet comprehensive physical examination to assess how effectively your body is functioning.

TREAT

Highly skilled application of a wide range of mild, non-invasive techniques, including stretching, massage and joint manipulation.

PREVENT

Develop a personal treatment plan based on your unique requirements. Stop problems reoccurring and/or from becoming established.

Jonathan Austin

M.Ost, M.Ed, B.Sc
Founder – Move Osteopathy

“Jonathan could not have been kinder or make me feel more at ease. I suffer from regular back pain and after a thorough consultation and initial treatment, I could feel results. I returned for a course of treatments during which my posture improved and my back pain decreased and has now been completely eliminated. I could not recommend Move Osteopathy highly enough.”

Susanna Dunnett

 

“One visit and within three days I am down the gym doing deadlifts. Jonathan knows his stuff.”

Paul Brewer

“Best osteopath I’ve ever had. Highly recommended”
