Who do we treat?
The range of osteopathic techniques means that no-one is too old or too young for osteopathy. Our patients include the young, older people, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children and sportspeople. Patients seek treatment for a wide variety of conditions, including back pain, changes to posture in pregnancy, postural problems caused by driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis and minor sports injuries.
The Advertising Standards Agency will only allow osteopaths to mention conditions where the efficacy has been proven by large-scale clinical trials. Data is not available for many symptoms that patients report improvement in, so they are not mentioned here.
