Based in the centre of Holmfirth on the outskirts of Huddersfield and serving the surrounding areas, we are a young, experienced, fully qualified team of osteopaths.
Whether it’s back, neck, hip or knee pain, arthritis, shoulder problems, sports injuries, postural problems or general aches and pains caused from natural wear tear or injury, our dedicated team are experts in diagnosing and treating these problems through osteopathy – a process involving moving, stretching and massaging muscle and joints.
There is often confusion and misconception about what an osteopath does and how osteopathy differs from other similar treatments offered. Many think it is just about backs and necks, but in fact it’s about treatment of the whole body.
Osteopathy is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.
Unlike other treatments, osteopathy gets to the root cause. It includes a full examination of the body and explanation of events which have resulted in the breakdown and subsequent pain, and treats each of these accordingly. Meaning all areas leading to the pain are treated and not just the specific area of pain itself.
In doing this we use physical manipulation, stretching and massage, with the aim of:
- increasing the mobility of joints
- relieving muscle tension
- enhancing the blood supply to tissues
- helping the body to heal
At Holme Valley Osteopathy we extend a warm welcome to everyone and cater for all requirements. We also cover all major health insurance providers such as BUPA, AXA and Simply Health.
So, if you are suffering with aches and pains, please book in for an initial consultation, we’re confident we can help.
Please note: If we feel osteopathy is not suitable for your problem, our team will let you know and give you advice on where to go next.
