DM Osteopathy

Find out more about DM Osteopathy, how we work and what you can expect when you visit.

First time to DM Osteopathy? 

Your initial consultation will include some simple questioning regarding the presenting complaint and other relevant medical history. This will be followed by an examination of the basic movements and special tests to help formulate a formal diagnosis. We will then discuss these findings prior to any treatment. 

If further treatment is required, your returning consultation will follow a similar pattern, working towards the best self-management of the presenting complaint. All advice will be easy to follow, but if any further information is required, feel free to ask at any point, during or after the consultation. 

All consultations are 30 or 60 minutes and are carried out by appointment only. Same-day appointments are available, but subject to availability. We shall always endeavour to see you at your best convenience.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a manual therapy which helps to diagnose and treat a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning efficiently together. 

Osteopaths use hands on treatment techniques such as manipulation, articulation, massage and stretching to improve the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, enhance blood and nerve supply to tissues. 

Based on evidence Osteopathy can be said to help with such conditions as:

  • Arthritic pain
  • Circulatory problems
  • Cramp
  • Digestion problems
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Frozen shoulder/ shoulder and elbow pain/ tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck, but not isolated occurrences
  • Headache arising from the neck (cervicogenic)

Osteopathy at DMO:
