Nothing on this site constitutes medical advice and information supplied is simply intended to answer accurately and honestly commonly asked questions about my own practice of Osteopathy, particularly Cranial Osteopathy and is based on my interpretation and experience.

Medical advice may be sought from a suitably qualified professional such as your Midwife, G.P., Paediatrician or Obstetrician.

No claims are made above for the treatment of any conditions. The only claim I make is to be an experienced qualified Osteopath. I am not a medical doctor. I make no claims of cure for any condition.

Cranial Osteopathy does not replace medical paediatric assessment or routine medical checks.

Patients are never dissuaded from seeking medical advice and sometimes actively encouraged to do so.

Some examples of when to contact a medical practitioner:

  • Any fever (38c +) diarrhoea or vomiting in a baby less than 3 months old
  • Any illness accompanied by an inability to keep down fluids
  • Crying when touched or moved
  • Purple rash
  • Breathing difficulty
  • Drooling with difficulty swallowing
  • Convulsions
  • Little or no urine output for 8 hours
  • Sunken eyes
  • Sunken fontanelles
  • Blood in stools or vomit
  • Vomiting in a child which lasts for more than 12 hours
  • Diarrhoea for more than five days
  • If a child is unusually inactive or irritable
  • Excessive urination in a child

As the founder of Osteopathy is believed to have said "Professional skill to the best of our ability our only guarantee".

Evidence for the use of Osteopathy so far only exists for the treatment of arthritic pain, muscle spasm, neck ache, fibromyalgia, rheumatic pain, whiplash, backache and back pain, circulatory problems, digestive problems, lumbago, neuralgia, sciatica, an inability to relax, sports injuries, aches and pains, cramp and joint pains.
