We have COVID measures in place in the practice to keep all our patients and staff safe.
Despite the changes in legal requirements regarding infection control measures, the advice from The Government’s UK Health Security Agency for Health and Social Care settings remains unchanged: that masks should be worn and hands washed/sanitized as before.
The General Osteopathic Council requires us to follow this advice as part of our professional standards. The wearing of masks will also enable our very vulnerable patients to continue having access to osteopathic treatment, and so, for the the time being, we will continue to require masks to be worn while on the premises.
We hope that the risks will soon be low enough for us to stop using masks, but in the meantime, we are grateful for our patients’ co-operation.
Located at the Cullercoats end of Whitley Road, Whitley Bay Osteopathic Centre has been helping people from the local area recover from pain and injury for over 25 years. We offer osteopathy, acupuncture, massage and psychotherapy to help people of all ages and abilities with a wide range of symptoms improve their health and wellbeing.
We commonly see people suffering with back pain, neck pain, and other mechanical (or musculoskeletal) pain, but as our aim is to help your body heal itself, we treat the person and not the complaint; working on freeing tensions and restrictions in the physical body can lead to improvements in symptoms of a wide range of health complaints.
For example, patients with osteoarthritic pain often find that osteopathy can help alleviate their pain and manage it better; we are not treating the arthritis, but helping our patients cope with the secondary effects that are a result of their condition. As Andrew Taylor-Still, the founder of osteopathy said, “the job of the physician should be to look for health, anyone can find disease”; our aim is always to improve your health, rather than just managing your symptoms.
We take time to listen to your story, to form an accurate diagnosis, and tailor an individualised treatment to your needs. You don’t need a referral from your GP, so why not give us a call today to book your appointment?
