Helen Morton Osteopathy

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy works to the needs of the individual. Using their hands and a range of techniques, osteopaths work on the muscles, joints and ligaments. By working to increase mobility or reduce muscle tension or by enhancing blood or nerve supply, they improve balance and function within the body. Helen completed her degree in Osteopathic Medicine at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1996.

How Can Osteopathy Help?

People of all ages seek treatment from osteopaths for many different reasons such as the following:

  • Neck and lower back pain
  • Sciatica

  • Tennis elbow
  • Postural problems such as neck pain from driving or arthritis

  • Neuralgia
