Osteopathy Glasgow Clinic

Unfortunately we currently do not have an osteopath practicing with us. For a range of alternative therapies please visit: our therapy information pages



Osteopathy is a manual therapy that treats and strengthens the skeleton, joints, muscles and fascia while also positively affecting the cardiovascular, lymphatic and neurological systems and the internal organs.

Osteopaths recognise the close link between structure and function of the human body and consider each person as an individual. They work with the structure of the body to create the right conditions to facilitate the healing process and improve function.

What do Osteopaths treat?

Osteopaths treat a variety of different musuloskeletal problems including:
  • Back and neck pain
  • Arthritic and rheumatic pain
  • Whiplash and headaches arising from the neck
  • Shoulder, arm and hand pain
  • Leg pain, cramping and circulatory problems
  • Pregnancy and postnatal pain
  • Acute and chronic sport injuries
  • What do Osteopathic treatments involve?

    The initial 1 hour Glasgow Osteopath clinic appointment consists of a short consultation, examination of the joints, soft tissue and the function of your body in various standing, sitting and lying positions and then diagnosis. Having ensured that you fully understand and are happy with the suggested treatment programme, treatment then commences using a combination of gentle massage, stretching, joint articulation and mobilisation as appropriate. You may be asked to undress to your underwear for this part of the consultation so please bring shorts and a t-shirt to wear if you would feel more comfortable.

    Follow up 30 minute appointment(s) will involve a continuation of the agreed treatment programme. Advice will also be given on appropriate self-help treatments and exercises.

    Regulation of the Osteopathic profession

    Today Osteopathy is a well established and respected profession which is recognised by the British Medical Association. Following The Osteopaths Act of 1993, all UK Osteopaths have to complete a minimum four years training in anatomy, physiology and clinic based studies and, once graduated, must become members of the osteopathic regulatory body, the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC).
