​Osteopathy is recognised system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works on the basis that the body is a whole, everything is connected and must function smoothly together for the optimum well-being of that person. As osteopaths consider everything to be interconnected, we often consider how sleep, recovery, and stress can all influence our pain and overall health too.

Despite Mvmt Osteopathy having a keen interest in sports injuries and rehabilitation, osteopathy is a safe, effective, and recognised treatment approach for

  • Office professionals/Teachers

  • Sports people

  • Manual/agricultural workers

  • Pregnant women (effective for treating pregnancy-related pain such as back/pelvic pain, sciatica and muscular tension in the back, neck, and shoulders)

  • Young people

  • The elderly/Retired



Osteopaths are statutorily regulated primary healthcare professionals (like GPs and nurses), who work in private healthcare and in some cases within the NHS. They are recognised by the NHS as one of the 14 allied health care professions (other professions included on this list are physiotherapists, paramedics and podiatrists - so we are in good company).

Every osteopath within the UK must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), as it is against the law to call yourself an osteopath if you are neither qualified nor registered. You can search the register here.

In order to become an osteopath you need to have a degree in osteopathy as a minimum, however it is very common for most osteopaths to have an integrated Masters degree (M.Ost). During this training there is a minimum requirement of 1000 clinical hours, and we are expected to continue keep our knowledge and skills up to date once we qualify, which is monitored annually by the GOsC. This is to ensure that high standards of professional practice are met, as regulated and recognised healthcare professionals.
