Dunelm Osteopathy

Osteopaths are skilled healthcare professionals who use their knowledge and skills to treat people of all ages. We try to understand what is causing your symptoms and if we think that they are due to the mechanics of your body not working well we use hands on techniques to try to change the situation. For example we may treat your foot because that is where an injury has occurred or we may treat your foot because its mechanics are causing your knee pain.

The techniques involve massage and stretching, articulation (movement) through the joints and manipulation. We treat all areas of the body, if it’s muscular or got joints we want to get our hands on!

Osteopaths acknowledge the need for healthy lifestyles and will give advice or guidance on exercise, diet and mental attitude. We do our best form a partnership with you, helping you to gain the ability and skills to manage your physical health.

  • Good habits

    I enjoyed a lovely long break over the Christmas period and count myself lucky to have done so. So I was happily back to work, but my goodness it did seem hard physically And then running, oh my legs hurt even though I felt I'd done enough to keep going over the holiday along with a few good walks.Of course the trouble is that when out of routine things tend to slide and I had let slip my very brief morning stretching routine. This usually takes 5-10 minutes three or four times a week and I really enjoy doing it.

      What this has demonstrated to me is how very little we need to do to keep our bodies out of trouble, but how easy it is to stop looking after ourselves. What joy to also know that we can pick up our stretching and training again, and our bodies and minds will respond and embrace the kindness.
