Sports, Spine & Posture

Lucy uses the principle that healthy balance and function of the musculoskeletal framework of the body is essential to whole body health.

Injuries such as a sprained ankle can lead the whole body to compensate for a limp. Stiffness or restricted mobility in the pelvis, spine, rib cage, shoulders and neck can make it difficult to compensate for the limp and aching or pain may result.

Osteopathic practice is a healthcare approach that provides a package of care that can include one or more of the following: manual therapy, health information, self management advice and support, and/or exercise therapy, as determined by the needs of the patient.

Nutrition Advice

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.
