Where would I find an Osteopath?

In the majority of cases arranging an appointment is as simple as using an online search engine or a telephone guide and making a phone call. It is of course beneficial to seek the advice of local healthcare professionals or people you may know who have had a positive experience with a particular osteopath; GPs will normally be able to assist with this decision. In some cases a GP will refer a patient to an osteopath if this kind of treatment will benefit the patient’s health.

All osteopaths who practise in the U.K should be registered with the General Osteopathic Council; you can find out if an osteopath is registered by checking the register provided online by the General Osteopathic Council (this is available at http://www.osteopathy.org.uk/information/finding-an-osteopath) . This site also displays information about practising osteopaths including the year they first registered and their contact details. It is a legal requirement for an individual to be registered if they wish to use the title of osteopath.

Some osteopaths offer home visits but most practise at a surgery or health centre; for those who have limited means of transport or issues with mobility it may be advisable to seek a service that is willing to carry out home visits. Details of those who offer home services can be found on the register provided online by the General Osteopathic Council.
