Welcome to

Osteopathy and Therapy Gosforth

Have you got back or neck pain for the first time due to an injury? Does your back frequently ache due to bad posture? Or, do you need to relax your body and work on releasing muscle tension? If this sounds familiar to you, Osteopathic or massage treatment may be what you need to help get out of pain quickly. Osteopathy is a hands-on therapy,  using techniques to mobilise joints as well as manipulate and stretch out tight muscles and get the body functioning better – leading to better recovery outcomes.  Massage therapy works by making changes to the muscular and lymphatic system to release tension, break down adhesions (knots!) and promote healing.

An osteopath examines the interplay between the nervous systems, fascia, joints, muscles and adjusts the tissues on your body to ease tension and improve function. With the right treatment, your body will heal more quickly and effectively.

There’s still a lot more you need to know about Osteopathy, and here are some things you need to consider.

Get a Deeper Understanding About Osteopathy and Massage Therapy

We at Osteopathy and Therapy pride ourselves on the quality of treatment and the skills delivered during the sessions to ensure a  positive impact. We are all trained and registered with our relevant regulatory bodies – ensuring professional standards at all times. 

We use a hands-on approach to our treatment. This includes stretching, mobilisations, joint manipulation, and soft tissue techniques to improve the musculoskeletal system’s overall quality and function. This is all done in a gentle, effective, and natural way, complemented by acupuncture, taping cupping, and some home stretching and lifestyle advice where needed.

Osteopathy is a profession, governed by statute, classified as a primary healthcare worker and allied to the NHS – meaning it is recognised and in some cases offered by the NHS.  

The General Osteopathic Council regulates osteopaths, and our Gosforth massage therapists are also voluntarily regulated by the Federation of Holistic Therapists and the Sports Therapy Association. This ensures that we practitioners have gone through the required training, update our skills through CPD, and have achieved the high standards you would expect from us. 

Also, osteopathy in Gosforth is supported by substantial scientific research that provides evidence that the outcome of the therapy is effective.

What to Expect At Osteopathy and Therapy

Suppose you’re looking for a professional therapist who can offer you a solution or a pathway for further investigation, such as scans or tests. In that case, you need to check out osteopath Gosforth as we have some of the most reliable and trusted osteopaths and therapists.

Our massage in Gosforth offers various techniques in helping you treat musculoskeletal conditions – including deep tissue, sports, aromatherapy, and Swedish massage.

Before starting treatment, we begin with an initial consultation as osteopathic, and massage treatment is tailored to the individual and what is going on. During the consultation session, Gosforth osteopaths and massage therapists spend time asking about the presenting condition, a case history, assessment followed by treatment in 99% of cases – if you need further investigation, we will let you know.

When Do You Need to See an Osteopath

Having musculoskeletal treatment and care is an essential component to maintaining good health and wellbeing. Osteopathy and Massage in Gosforth apply the philosophy of treating the body as a whole – holism, so we may offer you other lifestyle advice to help you feel better mentally and emotionally if that’s what is indicated. 

So, when do you know if you need to see an osteopath or massage therapist?

Sitting at the Desk 8+ Hours a Day

There’s a saying that “Sitting is the New Smoking.” But, since anyone has yet to deny or confirm that statement, we agree that sitting for long periods is associated with many postural adaptations which can lead to painful backs and necks, plus the lack of mobility can lead to a further health problem such as cardiac, diabetes and digestive problems.

Many people experience pain relating to their jobs in front of computer screens or at desks. Osteopathy and Therapy in Gosforth will help you treat conditions and, more importantly, introduce some home maintenance suggestions to help reduce your pain levels.

You Have Frequent Neck Pain

You Have Frequent Neck Pain

Pain in the neck can really affect your ability to concentrate, move and safely perform activities such as driving and sometimes lead to headaches, shoulders problems, and nerve impingements. Pain can be chronic or acute, and we can help treat both. We will identify restrictions and tension by assessing the tissues and structures which may be causing your neck pain and give you advice around postural adaptations, which will help prevent further episodes.

Struggling with Lower Back pain

Lower back pain is relatively frequent, and one of the main reasons people visit to see us.  Again, a result of poor posture, not using our bodies properly, and wear and tear from our lifetimes.  There may also be sciatica – a nerve impingement syndrome causing pain, changes to sensation, or weakness in your leg and foot.  These are all things that can be helped with hands-on treatment.

Sporting Injuries

You can consult an osteopath or sports massage therapist if you have sporting injuries such as ankle sprains, rotator cuff issues, tennis elbow, and acute knee pain.  We will discuss which type of practitioner would be best for you to see when you call up for an appointment.

Suffering from Headaches or Migraine

There is evidence to support the assessment and treatment of some headache and migraine disorders through manual therapy. This is because a high proportion (around 80%) of these conditions come from issues within the muscles, joints, discs, or nerves in the neck and shoulders.  We get a good outcome from people whose headaches or migraines originate from these structures.
