Emsworth Osteopathic Clinic

At the Emsworth Osteopathic Clinic a friendly, professional, whole body approach is taken to treating people from 9-99 for a wide and varied range of problems. Patients include sports people, the elderly, pregnant women and children. Patients are welcome to bring a partner or friend with them, children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Osteopathy is a safe and natural approach to healthcare and is effective in treating a range of conditions.

Appointments last approximately 45 minutes. This will involve a detailed case history, which will include any previous medical history such as any serious illnesses, accidents, broken bones, or operations which you have had since birth up to the present day. Any of these may have a bearing on your current problem. It also affords the time to explain to the patient what is wrong in order to make them aware of the prognosis and help them feel in control of their recovery.

A treatment plan will be made if osteopathic treatment is indicated which will also incorporate advice on movement, posture and exercise in order to speed up rehabilitation. If it is felt that Osteopathy is either innapropriate or should not be the only form of treatment alternatives will be discussed with the patient.
