WELCOME TO FROME VALLEY OSTEOPATHS
Frome Valley Osteopaths is located near the River Frome in the lovely village of Frampton Cotterell.
For some people health is running marathons and climbing mountains and for others health is pottering in the garden without significant pain or discomfort. Each version of health is equally valid and we listen to make sure we understand your personal reason for coming to the clinic. You may have a specific problem such as low back pain, headaches or plantar fasciitis or you may come because you have multiple generalised aches and pains that you are no longer coping with. “To find health should be the object of any Doctor. Anyone can find disease.” AT Still.
Frome Valley Osteopaths is registered with the regulating body the General osteopathic council. More information about osteopathy can be found on their website osteopathy.org.uk
We treat with the understanding that the body has the ability to heal and regulate itself but due to life events such as a trauma, stress or pregnancy etc we sometimes need a helping hand from a professional to find health and get back on track.
YOUR FIRST VISIT
On your first visit we will take a detailed case history and assess the extent and severity of the complaint, using this and our knowledge of anatomy and physiology we will put together a treatment plan tailored to you.
It is possible that on your first visit you will be asked to remove some clothing so we can see the full extent of the complaint. However, if this is a problem it can be avoided by wearing shorts/tracksuit bottoms and a vest top.
“HEALTH IS A STATE OF COMPLETE PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SOCIAL WELL BEING: NOT MERELY THE ABSENCE OF DISEASE OR INFIRMITY”
BACK, NECK AND JOINT PAIN
It is a common misconception that osteopaths only treat back pain, However we are very good at it and treat back pain caused by all sorts of things e.g. disc injuries, trapped nerves, muscle spasms and whiplash etc.
PREGNANCY AND CHILDREN
Osteopaths can also help mothers recover quickly after the birth by making sure the mothers pelvis returns to its ‘normal’ position and therefore reduce the occurrence of back pain, cervico-genic headaches, fatigue etc
Our treatments find the cause of the pain or injury, reduce inflammation and pain levels, increase mobility, speed recovery and reduce the risk of reoccurrence.
WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY
“My 6 week old baby was very unsettled and suffering from reflux and colic. After one session of cranial osteopathy Lauren used on my daughter she was a different baby, she was so chilled, slept better and seemed pain free! I really was sceptical about cranial osteopathy before going but was absolutely amazed of the results. I was anxious of taking my daughter out before as she would cry continuously for hours, i now feel confident about going out as i have a calm baby all thanks to Lauren!”
