Joint & Pain Relief from the Whitley Bay Osteopathic Centre

The Whitley Bay Osteopathic Centre is one of the foremost osteopathic clinics in the North East of England, attracting patients from Newcastle, Sunderland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Northumberland.

Osteopathy reflects the fact that the body is an integrated system where problems in one area can lead to pain in other areas. Osteopathy improves mobility, relaxes muscles, aids fluid drainage and stabilises the body. Osteopathy is highly effective in the treatment of muscular and skeletal conditions including:

  • Back Pain & Spinal Problems
  • Headaches & Migraine
  • Sciatica
  • Joint Pain & Arthritis
  • Sports Injuries
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries
  • Postural Problems
  • Childhood Problems & ‘Growing Pains’

Osteopathy is effective for women during pregnancy, helping the body to support natural changes in balance and posture.

Osteopathy is a ‘hands on’ therapy that varies in intensity from the light touch of cranial massage to the more dynamic High Velocity Thrust (HVT) treatment that often leads to the infamous ‘clicking’ sound with which osteopathy is often associated.  In most cases osteopathic treatment involves the comfortable stretching of muscles and ligaments in and around the affected areas.

All osteopaths should be registered with the General Osteopathic Council. Osteopathy is recognised by the NHS and is available through most private healthcare insurers subject to a referral from a GP. The Whitely Bay Osteopathic Centre regular receives referrals from GP’s, consultants and medical practitioners and many clients are referred by family and friends of existing patients.

A full medical history will be taken during the initial appointment as health and lifestyle factors play a crucial role in the treatment plan. Patients often feel an improvement in their condition following the first session and typically feel the full benefit after 3 or 4 treatments.
