What is osteopathy? and  what do osteopaths do? 

Do you regularly feel stiff and achy after a day sitting at your desk or driving?

Are you struggling to get a good night’s sleep because you’re uncomfortable?

Have you had to stop training or exercising because of pain or injury?

Are you worried your baby or child feels uncomfortable and are you lost with how to help them feel more relaxed?

You shouldn’t have to accept being in pain; let us help you to feel better.



What do osteopaths do?

Our hands-on techniques will help to relieve your pain and get you moving. We work on:

  • muscles
  • joints
  • ligaments and tendons
  • nerves
  • bespoke exercises to put you in control of your health again

Osteopaths look at the whole body, not just the part that hurts. All parts of the body are interconnected, so an imbalance in one area can affect another.

We also consider how your lifestyle affects your pain, such as your job, commute, hobbies, how you sleep, diet, stress levels. We put all this information together to build a picture of you as a whole person, not just a “symptom”.

By treating you as a whole person, we can address the root cause of your pain. We are here to guide you and empower you with the knowledge of how to prevent your pain from reoccurring.

We take the time to listen to your problem and concerns and after conducting a thorough examination, our expert osteopaths will get to the root cause of your problem.

It’s important to us that you fully understand your pain. We want you to leave your appointment with a better understanding of why your problem has occurred and a clear action plan of how we are going to help you to feel better.

Wellness Care - Fit for Life

At Cheadle Osteopathy we don’t just get you well again and send you on your way.

We are always here to offer advice and to support you in reaching your goals. It doesn’t matter if we haven’t seen you in clinic for two weeks or two years – once a patient, always under our care.

If you have any questions, need advice about your posture in your new car seats, are concerned about your child following a fall or want to start a new sport and you’re unsure where to begin – give us a call. We are happy to send advice sheets or just talk it through.

Some of our patients benefit from ongoing treatment to keep them mobile, on track with their exercises or as part of looking after their physical health and well-being.

You are familiar with having an MOT or service for your car to keep it running well. How many times do you do this for your body? Don’t wait until your body ‘breaks down’. Catching and dealing with problems early means we can keep you pain free and moving, rather than waiting until you’re in crisis.

Your osteopath will discuss the best ongoing plan, if needed, for your individual circumstances.

Osteopaths are degree educated, are fully insured and registered with the General Osteopathic Council.  It is an offense for someone to call themselves an osteopath if they aren’t registered. Other useful info: The Institute of Osteopathy

We will guide you on bespoke exercises and advice to take home with you, putting you back in control.

Osteopaths look at the whole body, not just the part that hurts. All parts of the body are interconnected, so an imbalance in one area can affect another.

Treating you as a whole person helps to address the root cause of symptoms and prevent them from returning.

We aren’t just interested in a ‘quick fix’. Our bespoke advice gives you the knowledge to understand your pain and how you can manage and prevent it, now and into the future.

Grow with osteopathy: It’s a real privilege to treat babies and children throughout various stages of their lives.  Childhood and adolescence should be about scrapes, tumbles and adventures. We help to make children feel more comfortable and relaxed along the way, so they can get on with being a kid.

Osteopaths are degree trained, fully insured and registered.  Find out more through the General Osteopathic Council and the Institute of Osteopathy
