Lucy can advise specific exercises for support between treatments for your current issue, and also advise specific movements to avoid, which may lead to re-injury.

Often supervised classes (including Personal Training) aimed at medium to long term rehabilitation such as Pilates, Yoga, Weight training and Swimming are advised on a case-by-case basis.

As Primary Health Care Practitioners, Osteopaths are medically trained, qualified and registered to provide care in the community for people making an initial approach to a medical clinic or practitioner for advice or treatment. GP’s are commonly known providers of primary care.

Osteopaths screen every patient with a thorough case history and appropriate examination, including a neonatal/ paediatric examination for babies or children, in order to assess whether the patient’s issue is suitable for osteopathic treatment, or whether a referral to GP, Specialist or Paediatrician is required.

Your consent will be sought before a referral takes place, and all issues of concern will be discussed with you in order for you to make an informed decision.

If you have any serious concerns regarding your health, call NHS Direct for Urgent need medical help or advice on phone number 111.

For immediate life-threatening emergencies continue to call 999.

Nutrition is often a key part of treatment of chronic or acute issues at all ages. Supporting long term health with optimum nutrition, or identifying foods intolerances or allergies can have many key benefits.

Lucy is able to give preliminary nutrition advice, and will suggest further referral to a Naturopath or to your GP for Dietician, Nutritionist, or for allergy testing if required.

Nutritional needs change during pregnancy after birth, and specialist pregnancy nutritionists can provide further advice. Breastfeeding and postural advice can be obtained from your Midwife, Health Visitor, Lactation Consultant and Osteopath. Lucy may also encourage you to seek further advice from these practitioners. Concerns regarding your baby’s weight gain, tongue-tie or acquirement of milestones can be raised with these practitioners, and you may be referred to a Paediatrician if required.
