We hope this site provides you with all the information you need on what Osteopathy is and how it may be able to help you and your family.

Osteopaths have a comprehensive understanding of how the body operates and work on a deep level with the various inter connected systems: anatomical, physiological and neurological. Tension in one system, can affect another. Relieving tensions and strains in one system can have far reaching beneficial effects across all systems.

Osteopathy is a total body treatment which engages the body’s own innate drive towards normal function. Your body will always try to heal itself, but sometimes it needs a helping hand. Osteopathy can be the catalyst to assist your body to regain its healthy balance.

Shrewsbury Osteopaths specialise in Cranial Osteopathy. This is a very detailed gentle Osteopathic approach. Cranial Osteopathy is very often the treatment of choice for patients, as it is gentle and subtle in approach and profound in action.

Who we are…

Susan and Richard Allen set up their Osteopathic Practice in 1979, the longest established practice in the west midlands and one of the most experienced practices in the country. They each have extensive post graduate training in Cranial Osteopathy and have been teaching and tutoring on post graduate cranial courses since 1985 and have mentored the next family generation working at the practice.

Why try Osteopathy?

95% of our new patients come because of recommendation by existing patients, doctors or midwives. One of the reasons for this, is that we often succeed in assisting recovery when patients have exhausted their treatment options.

What to expect on your first visit

At your new patient consultation, a case history is taken to understand the complaint and to work out the most suitable treatment. The history of trauma and stress can effect our posture and health . We take the time to listen to your story. The first session includes case history, examination and treatment.

Who do we treat?

We treat everyone, from new borns to the elderly with the gentle Cranial Osteopathic approach. Osteopathy is best known for the treatment of back, joint and muscle pain. Physical strain from posture, old injuries, stress and illness creates more tension. This often presents as single or multiple body area pain and dysfunction. The benefits of Osteopathic treatment in pregnancy and childhood are becoming much more widely known and many of the mothers and children who come to see us at our practice come on personal recommendation from other parents.
