Welcome to Osteopath Medicine

Osteopaths are primary health care professionals regulated by law. UK standards of Osteopathy are set, maintained and developed by the General Osteopathic Council - the professional statutary regulator.

Osteopathy specialises in the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal and related disorders, for example:
  • Headache
  • Neck pain
  • Arm pain
  • Frozen shoulder / shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain eg tennis / golfers elbow
  • Hand pain
  • Low back pain
  • Leg pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee / ankle / foot pain
You can self refer to your Osteopath or your GP may recommend Osteopathic treatment.

National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) are the body that decide what medicines and treatments should be available to the public via the NHS. NICE now recommend Osteopathy and Acupuncture as first line treatments for nonspecific low back pain.

National Council for Osteopathic Research (NCOR) has now been in existence for several years. Historically there has been little research in Osteopathic and other manual disciplines. NCOR mission and strategic statements are available with www.ncor.org.uk

NCOR strives to develop an evidence base for Osteopathic medicine through research and development of osteopathic care. James is happy to discuss with any patient the current evidence in osteopathic treatment both strengths and weaknesses.
