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.

  • feel the fear

    I went to a new exercise class on Monday, the weather forecast made running look like a chore. I was full of enthusiasm until a couple of hours before whereupon the doubts started.

    What if; 

    I don't like it,

    I make a fool of myself,

    I'm  the oldest, fattest,

    I'm the worse dressed/wearing the wrong gear.

    Then my neck started hurting, maybe I should give it a miss this week. Oh and it was now pouring with rain and it is hard enough finding somewhere new in good weather. And of course just when I wanted to finish on time I ran over...maybe it will be too late.

    Luckily I had followed my own advice and had planned my own back up. I had been in touch with a friend who goes to this class and she had confirmed with the class leader that there would be a space for me. The thought of letting my friend down, and not seeing her, got me there. And yes I enjoyed it, I don't think I made a fool of myself and if I did I don't care because I had fun. Ditto oldest, fattest, clothing etc, the only person who might possibly care was me.....and I remembered it didn't matter.

     Go on, get out there DO SOMETHING
