What is Osteopathy treatment

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Osteopaths work on the joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and connective-tissue to help improve a patient’s mobility and reduce their symptoms. Osteopaths understand the health and function of the musculoskeletal system is key to helping a patient recover from their symptoms.

Osteopaths use a combination of soft tissue work (massage), joint articulation and manipulation (clicking) as appropriate for the patients age, health and symptoms to help improve the mobility of the spine and peripheral joints.

Osteopaths are regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC)

The treatment is first class...

I have been going to Berkhamsted Osteopaths regularly for over ten years and would not hesitate in recommending them. Any back or muscular problems I have had have always been successfully resolved.

Simon, Berkhamsted

Very friendly and professional...

Tim and Juliet run a very friendly and professional practice. After a very painful and bad back, they had me back playing golf again after a short series of treatments..

Mr G, Berkhamsted

Without Juliet's expertise, I would still be suffering...

I was in a lot of pain with my back but thought it would fix itself over time. After more than a month of worsening pain, I decided to go and see Juliet, after a personal recommendation. I should have sought treatment sooner, but like most people, (particularly men) put it off.

Juliet managed to ease the pain and loosen my fairly twisted back; she also put me on a simple stretching exercise regime. With every session, my back improved. I did have a relapse, but that was down to me not taking advice. Again, Juliet sorted me out pretty quickly.

Like most people, I spend a lot of time sitting at work. Over time this has come back to bite me.

Being pain-free makes a huge difference, being able to sleep and walk - the things we take for granted.

Without Juliet's expertise, I would still be suffering and not getting better.
