Our patient-centred approach puts your well-being first

At the Charles Street Clinic we aim is to enhance the body’s own healing capacity by applying the restorative powers of osteopathy to keep you pain free – and not just from back problems, but also from conditions ranging from headaches to dizziness and digestive problems.

And our treatments are suitable for everyone – from babies and senior citizens to office workers and sports players.

We use your first appointment to record a full case history so we can understand the nature of your condition and its history. Then we conduct both an active standing examination and a passive examination lying down to obtain a working diagnosis of your problem as the basis of a personalised treatment plan.

Osteopathy is effective for treating a wide range of structural conditions including:

  • Lower and upper back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Sciatica, neuralgia and fibromyalgia
  • Sports injuries and impaired performance
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Occupational strain
  • Joint pain/dysfunction in wrists, elbows, hips, knees, ankles
  • Arthritic pain
  • Postural problems

Depending on our diagnosis, we will work directly on your joints, muscles and ligaments to identify areas of restricted mobility and reduce inflammation, relax the muscles and increase blood supply to the affected area.

Or we may apply the gentle manipulative techniques of cranial osteopathy to encourage the release of tensions throughout the head and body. This is a particularly effective treatment for babies and children.

Throughout we will actively discuss the nature of your condition and share with you helpful advice about exercises, posture and diet that will help you understand how small changes in your daily life can make a big difference to your physical comfort.

"I suffered a bad whiplash injury 30 years ago and, despite a spinal infusion, I still had muscle spasms and headaches. I decided to give Sam Middlehurst and Kim Weir at Charles Street Clinic a try as the doctors could do nothing except prescribe pain killers. In a short time, Kim managed to get rid of the muscle spasms and Sam managed to correct my spine. Both treatments worked so well that I now see Sam for regular ‘servicing’. I cannot recommend this clinic highly enough."
