IBS / Abdominal

If you have a diagnosed gastrointestinal condition such as IBS or if you have general gastrointestinal symptoms without a specific diagnosis, we’d recommend that you book an initial consultation either with our osteopath, Katie, or our nutritionist, Karen.

Karen and Katie usually collaborate in helping patients with gastrointestinal symptoms but to put it simply, Katie will tend to focus firstly on what’s happening physically within the organs of your abdominal area and relieve tension and discomfort with gentle manual therapy; Karen will tend to focus first on the biochemistry of your gastrointestinal systems to identify imbalances, deficiencies and inflammatory responses.

Women often experience worsening of abdominal symptoms associated to their menstrual cycle or menopause and the team can also assist with these hormonally-related symptoms.

Don’t just take our word for it

Back to winning ways

For the last 5 or 6 years, I’ve basically had no problems with my back and I can now continue to train, basically, for as long as I can keep my energy levels up…as long as I keep seeing Stefaan every 6 to 8 weeks!

Got my life back

After 14 years of intense lower back pain and sciatica, I am now pain-free. I am even able to play golf which I thought would never be achievable. Stefaan and the Core team are brilliant at what they do and create a warm, welcoming customer experience. Their approach gave me confidence from the outset that they would achieve their goals and I’m pleased to say…they have.

A new lease of life

I have been visiting Charlie for a few months now, he makes you feel welcome and very comfortable. I came suffering from shin splints after a few sessions they have now gone. I can’t recommend him enough. Thanks!
