The Hest Bank practice is re-opening on Monday 6th July

Welcome to the Osteopathic Centre, our clinic provides professional and caring osteopathic treatment. We are situated in Hest Bank (Lancaster) and Kirkby Lonsdale. When the Osteopathic Centre re-opens we will be following best practice advice issued by the Institute of Osteopathy on infection and disease control. We will triage patients prior to appointments, wear PPE and maintain rigorous infection control to prevent cross contamination. This will include aerating rooms and sanitising pillows, couches and all surfaces between patients. Patients will be asked to please wait in their cars until called in for treatment and to wear a mask on entering the building, we have spare masks so don’t worry if you forget your mask. With these precautions in place you can be assured that your visit to the Osteopathic Centre will be as safe as possible regarding covid-19. 

Do not attend the clinic if you or someone in your household or bubble develops a new persistent cough, fever, loss or change in sense of smell or taste or have had symptoms in the last 7 days. Follow government advice and self-isolate and cancel your appointment.

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.
