Osteopathy Can Help

The Welwyn and Hatfield Practice - Call us on 01707 888229

Back & Neck Trouble

Most back and neck pain results from mechanical disturbances of the spine e.g. from postural strains, joint dysfunction, disc injury muscle strains and trapped nerves.

Problems Related To Work

Poor working posture can contribute to, and exacerbate, daily aches and pains, whether you lift heavy loads, sit at a computer all day or drive for long periods. Treatment and advice on posture, movement and back care can help prevent on-going problems. Preventative and rehabilitation exercises can also be given.

Sports Related Complaints

Osteopathy is, in many respects, the ideal treatment for sports injuries, as it not only addresses the current injury but also treats the way in which the whole body functions and so prevents the same injury becoming recurrent.


Osteopathic treatment throughout pregnancy is a wonderfully gentle way of helping the body adapt to the changes taking place. The safety of the mother and baby is the Osteopath’s first concern. Osteopathy can help ease the side-effects of pregnancy, such as  pain in the buttock, groin or leg (‘sciatica’). Some patients also report reduced morning sickness after treatment. After delivery it is advised that mother and baby return for structural examination, advice and if necessary, treatment. Osteopathy can help postural problems from pregnancy


Osteopathy is suitable for babies, children, adolescents adults and the elderly. The Cranial osteopaths at The Hatfield Practice are experienced in cranial osteopathy which offers safe gentle care for all ages.

Children and Teenagers

By analysing, treating and managing problems associated with growth and posture e.g. Osteochondritis and exaggerated spinal curves, Osteopaths can make a major contribution to ensuring that young people become and stay fit and healthy. Teenagers take part in many sporting and recreational activities which carry the risk of sprains and strains. Osteopathic treatment can prevent problems developing and allow the body’s framework to heal naturally and adjust to the stresses and strains.
