At Hest Bank and Kirkby Lonsdale clinics we have comfortable waiting rooms with toys for children. Upon visiting the Osteopathic Centre you will be asked to sign a consent form we will then take a full history and ask questions about the onset, progression and nature of your problem. You may be asked to perform a series of simple movements to assess mobility.
At the Osteopathic Centre you will be assessed using basic orthopaedic and neurological testing. This will tell us whether osteopathy is likely to improve your condition. If we feel that osteopathic treatment is not appropriate we will tell you, as not all conditions can be improved, and advise you an alternative approach. This may involve a referral back to your GP.
We will discuss your treatment plan and diagnosis with you. Treatment will always be tailored to your individual requirements taking into account your physical and emotional condition. We can tailor treatments to your needs or preferences and can stop treatments at any point. Treatment can occasionally be uncomfortable – but should not be painful.
The Hest Bank clinic has disabled access and easy parking.
We stock neck care pillows, hot and cold packs, thera-band, grip strengtheners and a range of back supports.

How to find us:
From Morecambe or Carnforth: Turn off the Coastal Road (A5105) up Hatlex Lane. Drive over the canal bridge, immediately after the bridge the road swings to the right; bear right and take the driveway on your left. Take care – the driveway is a sharp turn to the left immediately after the bridge.
We have big green gates and are the second of the two driveways you see as you go over the bridge. Come up the drive and park at the back of the house, please do not park on Ashworth Drive directly in front of Uplands, (number 21).
From Slyne: Turn off the A6 down Manor Road (this eventually becomes Hanging Green Lane), pass the Memorial Hall on your left and keep straight ahead into Hatlex Lane. You will go round a tight right-hand bend and up a hill, go past Hatlex Hill on your right and take the next right turn through big green gates and up our driveway. Take care it is a sharp right hand turn. If you have driven over the canal bridge you have gone too far.
Please note, Sat navs are not that accurate for the last part of the journey!
