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.

Blog

  • Osteopathy for all

    As sit to write this blog today I find myself totally distracted and darkened by the events in Manchester last night. I have teenage children, I want to hug them tight and never let them out. Then I read of the amazing actions and response of so many people in Manchester, offering help and care to those affected, people of all sexes, faith and colour.

     I have never said in any of my blogs or adverts that all are welcome in our small clinical practice. I never thought it should be necessary. After all  to my mind discrimination is something we should all be aware of, and working against, despite some of the press,and the unimaginable actions of the few. 

      But I'll write it now. We welcome all, of any age, size, colour or faith. We don't care where you come from, or what your sexuality. We are people, we care for people. 

  • A new service at Dunelm Osteopaths
    We are pleased to welcome Jane Rae into the practice. Jane will be working with us to use prescriptive exercise to help peoples' recovery from pain and to encourage us all to hit the magic bullet of 150 minutes moderate exercise a week. It's hard if you are new to exercise or returning after a long break, let Jane help you along the way. She will also be doing massage, I for one am looking forward to that! Here is her biography.
    Jane is a qualified Personal Trainer and Sports Massage Therapist.
    Her aim is to keep people fit and healthy, using exercise as a means to stay as well as possible. Research shows that exercise is often the most effective road to health and wellbeing. 
    She currently teaches fitness to a wide ranging age group, and enjoys tailoring exercise to suit the individual. The best exercise is the one you you look forward to doing, let's make it fun.
