Patient care is at the heart of everything we do at The Hertford Osteopath. We are committed to taking the time to find out exactly what your situation might be and why you are feeling pain or discomfort, so that a detailed diagnosis can be made.
This will then be explained to you, so that you fully understand what is happening to your body. Your posture, your muscles, your joints and your movements will all be fully assessed.
The treatment plan will be first and foremost to reduce any pain and discomfort you feel in the shortest possible time, while addressing any factors which have been contributory.
Advice will generally be given so that you, the patient, can begin to take control and manage the situation to avoid a recurrence.
Our ultimate goal is to resolve the problem quickly and to avoid it recurring, and to ensure that you feel comfortable and fully informed throughout the treatment. We are always happy to have an informal chat about whether osteopathy can help you, before you book.

Osteopaths are regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). It is against the law to call yourself an osteopath unless you are qualified and registered with the GOsC. The minimum qualification for an osteopath is completion of a four or five year degree, which includes at least 1000 hours of supervised clinical practice. They must then continue to update and expand their knowledge by logging a minimum of 30 hours per year of continuing professional development. GOsC can remove an osteopath from the register if they fail to maintain a strict code of professional practice. You can check whether an osteopath is registered by visiting the GOsC website at https://www.osteopathy.org.uk/register-search/
