Most of us have experienced pain at sometime and when the pain persists and symptomatic relief is not enough its good to know there are effective alternatives to help resolve it. At Minehead Osteopathy & Sports Injury Clinic you will receive a 'hands-on' treatment, applied to suit the needs of the individual patient whatever their age.

A first appointment generally lasts about an hour to allow time to listen and ask questions about your problem, screen for more serious conditions which may need referral and then do a mechanical assessment of your posture and mobility before treatment starts. Because of the body's structure, the pain and stiffness you are experiencing in one part may be linked to a problem elsewhere.

Alongside osteopathy to improve joint mobility and ease muscular tension, Alison is also experienced in medical acupuncture and cold-light laser therapy to speed your body's healing response and kinesiology taping to support it when necessary. These services are available at no additional cost.

Self-help measures and advice on exercise will be offered to help assist your recovery and limit reoccurrence.
