We consider each person as an individual. On your first visit, we will spend time taking a detailed medical history including important information about your lifestyle and diet. You will then normally be asked to remove some of your clothing and perform a series of simple movements.
We will then identify points of weakness or excessive strain throughout your body. This will allow a full diagnosis of your problem and will enable your Osteopath to tailor a treatment plan to your needs.
We will use a range of manual techniques including pressure, stretching and manipulation to ease pain, reduce swelling, improve joint mobility or release your muscle tension. With added exercises and health advice, Jamie will help to reduce the symptoms and improve your health and quality of life.
Throughout your consultation we will make you feel at ease and tell you what is happening. Feel free to ask questions throughout the course of your appointment if you are unsure.
For acute conditions, two or three treatments will usually provide relief. For chronic conditions, you may need regular treatments over a period of time.
If further medical treatment or investigation is needed - for example an x-ray or blood test - we may contact your doctor, with your permission, or refer you on to the appropiate healthcare professional. In some cases the results of these investigations may be required before we can safely treat you.
Jamie treated my neck, gave me exercises to repeat and probably more importantly, convinced me I had a healthy spine. Within
two weeks I was a new woman, and have been pain free for weeks and weeks."

"After twisting my back when picking up my daughter, I was struggling to walk. I had two sessions with Jamie and have continued
with the exercises which he suggested. A month later, my back feels great and the pain has completely gone."

"For the first time in years I am no longer taking pain killers and able to sleep through the night"
