Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment which works with the structure and function of the body. The maintenance of good mechanical function is essential to good health. Problems in one part of the bodies framework often leads to aches and pains in joints and muscles elsewhere and may affect both circulation and nerves to any part of the body. Osteopaths work to restore the structure and function of the body to a state of balance and harmony, so helping the whole person.
On your first visit an osteopath will take a detailed medical history, and listen to your concerns. Then a careful examination will be carried out followed by specific treatment for your injury or health problem.
Obviously this does vary case to case, you may find one treatment is enough to unlock certain injuries, however, generally patients need between 2 - 6 sessions. Some patients feel they benefit from regular treatment once a month or every six months, it is up to the individual.
The initial appointment is for 1 hour which includes taking your medical history, an examination and then treatment. Follow up appointments are for 30 minutes.

A few years ago I suffered with ongoing terrible headaches and neck pain, I finally decided to go and see an Osteopath and I honestly couldn't be happier with the results and would recommend Jon and his lovely team at Billingshurst Osteopaths to anyone suffering from these types of symptoms. I visit the practice occasionally now as my job as a dental nurse can cause tension to build in my neck. I can't thank you enough - Holly Hill
I’ve been attending Billingshurst Osteopaths for the last ten years and cannot recommend them highly enough. What makes the clinic unique is that both Jon and Ben really work to get the root of any problems each patient has. Through traditional or more holistic treatments this has proved immeasurably helpful to me with alleviating pain long-term. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for treatment and I trust the team here completely - AS, Shipley
Following a back problem I was experiencing last October, I consulted Billingshurst Osteopaths. After a comprehensive and detailed assessment of the problem , I undertook 3 sessions including one of acupuncture. The treatment quickly cured the problem and I have not experienced a recurrence since. I would happily recommend Billingshurst Osteopaths to anyone who has this sort of problem - JH, Billingshurst
