The osteopathic clinics at Mill Court and Ferndale are part of Oxford Brookes University. They were the first osteopathic teaching clinics in the country accredited and based within a university.
The clinics are staffed by highly qualified and experienced osteopathic tutors and students.
Students assess and treat clients under the close supervision of the osteopathic tutors. The clinics provide a full range of osteopathic treatments across the lifespan (ante/postnatal, children, adults and older people). They also provide comprehensive treatment options for sports injuries and follow-up care.
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is an established, state regulated and recognised system of diagnosis and treatment which places its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. It is distinctive in that it recognises that much of the pain and disability we suffer from stems from poor function of the body's structure as the damage caused by disease and trauma.
... ensuring that the whole body begins to work and move in a more balanced way
We can help!
Osteopathy uses many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis, but its main strength lies in the unique way the client is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint. Post-diagnosis, a manual method of treatment is applied to suit the needs of the client. Our aim is to restore tissue flexibility where it has been reduced or lost, allowing the whole body to work and move in a more balanced way.
