Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by moving, stretching and massaging a person’s muscles and joints. Osteopathy is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.

What Does an Osteopath Do?

Osteopathy is a hands-on approach to prevention, assessment and treatment to allow your body to heal. Osteopaths are experts in the musculoskeletal system and how it interacts with other systems of the body. An osteopath must train for a minimum of 4 years, graduate with over 1000 hours of hands-on clinical practise and must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council.

A common question from patients is “does Osteopathy hurt?” If you are working on an area that is already in pain, there will commonly be tenderness and some discomfort. But on the whole osteopathy is quite gentle and not generally a painful treatment option. Most patients find osteopathic treatment very relaxing.

Osteopathy can be used successfully to treat specific conditions, but by nature osteopathy is a whole-body approach to restoring health. Sometimes pain or other symptoms are caused by a combination of issues around the body. At Core Clinics our osteopath specialises in treating patient suffering with headaches, gastrointestinal symptoms, menstrual discomfort, and people with hypermobility.

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!
