What we can treat

Purbeck Osteopathy can help people sort out all kinds of problems.

We use a system of diagnosis, taking of a thorough case history and examination process to detect damaged or injured parts of the body such as muscles, ligaments nerves and joints.

Osteopathic treatment will use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase joint mobility, relieve muscle tension, enhance blood supply and nerve innervations. All of which help your body’s own healing mechanism.

Advice may also be provided on posture and exercise to help aid recovery, promote health and reduce the risk of symptoms returning.

If you are receiving any other form of treatment, we may ask you to contact your GP for their agreement to therapy. This is essential, to ensure that our techniques do not interfere with any other treatment or medication.
