Osteopathic Treatment at The Orchard Street Practice - helping patients in pain


Newsletter January 2021


The Osteopathy and Acupuncture Clinics are open.


On 24 March 2020 as the country went into 'lock-down', we temporarily closed our clinics.  


During that time we received many calls from patients who needed help and advice about how to ease their painful spine or joints, whilst waiting for the clinics to open. We were  kept busy taking calls and ensuring our clinic was fully compliant with government regulations on PPE and hygiene, in order to open in May 2020.

Since then, new patients and regular clients have continued to seek  our help for their aches and pains, which had, in some cases, deteriorated over time due to changes imposed by the the lockdown and delays in NHS provision.  


The Orchard Street Osteopathic Practice has kept open and successfully treated many people in a safe and covid-secure environment since May 2020.


We are open for all essential treatment and are available for telephone advice or face-to-face appointments.  

If you are over 70 years of age or have vulnerable health or are shielding others, please call us for advice or guidance about what to do. 


Please be assured that the clinic is following strict government guidelines on hygiene, personal protection, social distancing and ventilation. We are doing our best to minimise the transmission of the covid-19 virus, keep people safe and offer essential treatment and care.


Thank you for reading our Newsletter.

Keep safe and well.
