Help with postural issues

Posture plays a key part in keeping our bodies performing at their best. Poor posture over a long period of time can cause many symptoms and problems, including pain, earlier and quicker onset of wear and tear, reduction in range of motion, and weakening of soft tissues. It can also result in symptoms such as headaches, chest pains, acid reflux and breathing difficulties.

Osteopathy can correct your posture and teach you how to hold your body, meaning you can be free of the painful symptoms you may be experiencing.

An osteopath examines your entire body, including your muscles, ligaments, tendons, your spine, your nervous system, and we use a variety of different hands-on techniques.

Many patients experience an immediate improvement from postural correction using osteopathy.

Due to the gentle nature of osteopathic techniques, they are suitable for all ages and conditions.
