Osteopathy is a system of health care that works with the structure and function of the body.
Osteopaths focus on improving posture, biomechanics and mobility by working on the muscles, joints and nervous system to reduce tension in the body caused by stress and injury.
At Lara’s Clinic we pride ourselves in tailoring each treatment specifically to the individual. We consider other aspects of our patient’s lives such as lifestyle, exercise and nutrition, as well as physical symptoms. We aim to treat the underlying cause of a problem, prevent its return and provide longer lasting relief.
A detailed history of your problem is recorded
Assessment of posture, muscles, ligaments.
Active movements & specific tests if required.
Explanation of your injury & how we can help you

Osteopaths are trained primary healthcare practitioners & can refer you for further investigations if required.
E.g. X-Ray, MRI scans, or to a GP for further investigation
