Headaches are often the result of structural problems with joints, muscles or other tissues.
Children may develop structural problems that affect the function of their body and create an unsettled baby.
Prolonged sitting along with bending, twisting and lifting are the major causes of back pain.
We diagnose and treat both acute (sudden onset) and chronic (long standing) injuries.
On your first visit to an osteopath it’s always good to turn up a little bit early as there will be a small amount of paperwork.
Our Christchurch-based osteopathic team is made up of highly skilled practitioners and friendly administrators, all dedicated to improving the lives of our patients.
Our focus is twofold – we provide immediate relief from pain and discomfort while simultaneously addressing the underlying cause of that pain. We diagnose areas of weakness, correct imbalances and enhance the way our patients' bodies function, constantly searching for the long-term solution rather than the short-term fix. The end result? Healthier, happier people leading fuller, more active lives.

Osteopathy is a form of ‘manual medicine’ that addresses health issues by massaging, stretching and manipulating muscles and joints. Osteopaths go further than the site of an injury, addressing the root cause of pain and discomfort in a bid to prevent ongoing issues. Osteopathy is used to solve an exhaustive array of problems, from neck and back pain, occupational overuse syndrome and sporting injuries to problems with flexibility.
As a team we are committed to the ongoing evolution of our knowledge, constantly studying the latest developments in the field and regularly attending local and international conferences.
