We have COVID measures in place in the practice to keep all our patients and staff safe.
PLEASE NOTE THAT, IN LINE WITH GUIDANCE FROM PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND, THE GENERAL OSTEOPATHIC COUNCIL AND THE INSTITUTE OF OSTEOPATHY, THESE MEASURES WILL REMAIN IN PLACE EVEN AFTER ANY EASING OF RESTRICTIONS BY THE GOVERNMENT.
We will not reduce our infection control measures until we are absolutely sure it is safe to do so. This means that all patients will continue to be required to wear a face mask (which we will supply) throughout the appointment, appointments will continue to be staggered to minimize the number of people in Reception and we will continue to scrub down the treatment room after every patient.
When you phone for an appointment our receptionist will run through a COVID screening procedure and give you information about what we need you to do to comply with our infection control procedures.
If, for any reason, you are unable to wear a face mask, the Osteopath will carry out a full risk assessment to establish whether we are able to put sufficient measures in place to allow us to treat you.
We are very grateful to all our patients for your patience throughout this pandemic and we are looking forward to the day we will be able to see you face-to-face rather than mask-to-mask, but for the time being, all our procedures will have to stay in place.
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?
