Welcome to Pocklington Osteopaths - we are a professional, friendly, approachable team of qualified practitioners and experts in muscular and skeletal pain reduction and maintenance programs


What is Osteopathy?


Osteopathic treatment is focused on balancing the structures of the body, the skeleton, muscles, joints, ligaments and connective tissues to enable optimal functioning of the body.

We use gentle muscle releasing massage and soft tissue techniques along with joint mobilisation and some specific adjustments to release joint restrictions. This treatment is effective in not only reducing pain symptoms but also in targeting the structural cause of these symptoms.

This type of treatment can offer relief to a huge range of people starting with children and ranging through to professional workers, keen sports enthusiasts, pregnant mothers and the elderly.

Osteopathic treatment is now recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence), they are the organisation that decides what treatments the NHS can authorise as an appropriate and effective treatment for back pain.
