What is an Osteopath?

Osteopathy is a form of healthcare focusing on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders and the effects of these conditions on patients' general health.

Osteopathy does not just treat joint or back pain but a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, and is suitable for all ages from childhood through adulthood to old age.

The Treatment

Osteopathic treatment consists of hands-on gentle manipulation and stretching of the muscles, ligaments and joints. Osteopathy does not use drugs or surgery.

The following list is by no means complete, but names the most commonly seen conditions:

-Arthritic pain

-Muscle spasms

-Joint pains

-Neck ache


-Back ache and pain



-Rheumatic pain


-Inability to relax

-Minor sports injuries

-General aches & pains


Osteopathy is for all of you

Osteopathy is available to all patients however young or old. You do not need a GP referral to visit an osteopath.

If you have medical insurance, osteopathic treatment is often covered and I am registered with all major Insurance companies including AXA PPP and BUPA. Your insurance company may require a letter of referral from your GP before agreeing to meet your treatment costs.

My Osteopathic Clinic

I work in St Albans at a group osteopathic practice with 3 other osteopaths and have worked from here since 1999.

The practice is approximately 1 mile from the centre of St Albans, on the A1057 Hatfield Road with parking at the rear of the building. We are a 15minute walk from St Albans City train station and have good bus routes, stopping 100 yds from the practice.

We are open Monday to Friday from 7.30 or 8am to 7 or 8pm.
