What we treat
We have experience working with a wide variety of patients with many different complaints and goals. Our aim is to help you with whatever your goals are, from something as straightforward as pain resolution resulting from poor posture through to starting or improving your level of the exercise or skills.
Our bodies are generally very good at healing themselves – we fall down, we bruise, the skin heals after a week or so – but sometimes though the pain does not go away, or it keeps on returning, and this is when Osteopathy can be very useful.

Osteopaths and Manual Therapists are well trained to recognise contra-indications & treatment should be suitable for any healthy & stable pregnancy.
Pre-conception- Osteopathy and Manual Therapy can help with posture, spinal & pelvic mobility and is useful if you have pre-existing injuries/spinal problems & are concerned.

Can you treat sports injuries?
Specifically experienced at working with sports injuries and strains and in optimising the body to achieve maximum performance, we can help to relieve or resolve muscle aches and pains whilst complementing performance and maintaining physical integrity.
Treatment can help you keep supple and improve muscle tone so reducing the risk of injury to soft tissues for both casual sports goers as well as seasoned amateur and professional athletes.
Osteopathy and Manual Therapy offers a combination of manual muscle therapy alongside joint mobilisation techniques and fascial stretching which combined can work to improve and develop muscles and therefore performance, as well as effectively treat strains and injuries. Dry needling can help with muscle recovery and Sports Massage can keep you moving and healthy as a regular part of your training regime.
The most traditional port of call for a sports injury is to see a Physiotherapist, however many people do not realize that Osteopaths and Therapists are equally qualified to treat and rehabilitate sports injuries.
Indeed here at Evolution we work with many sports people of all levels to relieve pain and discomfort as well as prescribe rehabilitation exercises and aim to eventually facilitate a full return to sport or improved performance. At Evolution our clinicians will also look to complement your training and recovery with exercises, specifically designed for you.
