"The last person I saw, I felt like I barely had time to put my bag down."

I'm sometimes asked by patients why at Olton Osteopathy we allow a full hour for all our appointments. That's unusual these days - many clinics restrict appointments to as little as 30 minutes. W...

Many of my clients worry about their bad posture. I know this, because they often tell me about it before I even get as far as the physical examination. “I know my posture’s terrible”, they confess – in the same guilty way that someone might confess to their doctor tha...

"My joints click a lot. Someone told me that this is a sign of arthritis. Is this true? Should I be worried?"
