Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for 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 smoothly together. Osteopathy is used to treat back pain, joint pain, sciatica, sports injuries and pregnancy pains, to find out more about these conditions as well as information on cranial osteopathy visit our page Osteopathy, or visit General Osteopathic Council.

The practice employs three osteopaths, Mary Vale, Katie Collyer and Alex Davies. Louise the practice manager ensures the smooth running of the practice. Our experienced practitioners are all registered with the General Osteopathic Council and  specialise in back pain.

We have included some testimonials and our current prices on the website. Directions can be found under the contact us link.


When you visit the Osteopathic Centre your treatment  and diagnosis will be discussed with you. Treatment is always tailored to your individual requirements.
