Osteopathy is manual (hands-on) therapy which seeks to restore balance to the body, mostly via the musculoskeletal system.
You Osteopath will use their hands to work on your muscles and joints, reducing tightness and stiffness. They will also work with you to improve your posture and strengthen areas of weakness. Osteopaths believe that this approach helps to improve mobility and reduce pain.
Osteopathy is commonly used to treat back pain, neck pain, sciatica and shoulder pain.
Many people notice an improvement in their symptoms within 2-3 sessions of Osteopathy.
Osteopathy may help with:
- Arthritic pain
- Frozen shoulder/ shoulder and elbow pain/ tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck, but not isolated occurrences
- Headache arising from the neck (cervicogenic)
- Joint pains
- Joint pains including hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis as an adjunct to core OA treatments and exercise
- General, acute & chronic backache, back pain (not arising from injury or accident)
- Generalised aches and pains
- Migraine prevention
- Minor sports injuries
- Muscle spasms
- Tension and inability to relax
- Rheumatic pain
- Uncomplicated mechanical neck pain (as opposed to neck pain following injury i.e. whiplash)

I recently pulled my neck muscle while doing heavy weight training, it was the first time I had a injury while working out which got me worried if my neck was fractured or worse, so I needed someone to check it out. I could not get an appointment to see my GP (no surprise), I called Ashlins to see if they could help. The lovely lady at the phone booked me in for a consultation with the Osteopath same day. I came in and met Dermott Earley. During the consultation, he was very professional and friendly, everything was explained thoroughly. I'm extremely grateful for the time he spent (over an hour with no charge) and would definitely recommend Ashlins to everyone. Thanks!
I have sciatica and I see the osteopath at Ashlins, Sarah Oliver- Excellent!!!! I'd recommend Sarah to everyone. She is friendly, efficient, professional and effective.
I have had the treatment for a few weeks and my problem is getting much better!
Although it was my first treatment I am happy with everything and I can feel positive effects. Sarah, the osteopath, is really good! I booked my next session already!
I came to Ashlins to see Sarah, for osteopathy, I had lower back pain. The treatment made able to move around again. Pretty pain free!
I came to Ashlins because of my leg and knee pain. I saw Sarah for osteopathy, I found her very professional in her work and very dedicated. She explains everything she is going to do and makes you feel relaxed. I am glad I was recommended to Sarah from a neighbour. After this treatment I feel like I'm walking on air, it's well worth the money.
