The clinic was established by osteopath Georgina Fisher to provide a complete family service, from babies to their grandparents. The osteopathic team has expanded to include osteopaths experienced in baby and child care, the team of Osteopaths are all former athletes, they have a deep understanding of the nature and treatment of sports injuries and ailments of day to day life.
Apart from the specialist areas, our staff treat the general areas of neck and back pain, headaches, and other problems of the body. We not only work on the spine but can also address pain and injures in the joints such as feet, knees, shoulders, elbows and the jaw.
All treatments are tailored to the individual and devised after a discussion of the patient’s general health and a thorough physical examination. Treatments may include massage, manipulation and stretching. Patients may be given exercises to do at home, thus speeding up the healing process. We aim to help resolve your aches and pains in as short a time as possible. We will keep you informed about your treatment and how it is helping you. You will be encouraged to discuss any treatment issues with your osteopath.
Aware that new parents can become anxious about their baby, we offer specialist care with newborns. If you have any concerns about your baby or toddler, we can do an assessment and if necessary provide a course of therapy, which may involve gentle massage. An increasing number of women are now seeking pre and postnatal care, both to give their child the best start in life and to keep themselves in good health. We can help with advice and therapy, if needed.
Schoolchildren can also cause their parents concern, often developing poor posture as a result of hours spent hunched over books or computers, or carrying heavy bags. We can work on realigning their bodies, improving posture, relieving any pain and preventing future problems.
