At present we have four osteopaths working at the clinic, Verity Booth, Kate Blanch, Maria Gillam and Ross Mcallister. All are registered with the General Osteopathic Council. Osteopathy is a recognised and effective system of diagnosis and manual treatment for the structural and mechanical problems that can affect the body from time to time. Accidents, stress, heavy lifting or other heavy work, bending awkwardly or simply sitting, driving or using a computer for long periods can cause these often debilitating problems. Osteopathy is one of the most widely used of the alternative or complementary therapies and has been self regulating by statute since the Osteopathy Act was passed by parliament in 1993. As such its standing under the law which is the same as doctors or dentists. Osteopathy was developed by an American doctor, Andrew Taylor Still, in 1874 and was fully recognised in the USA in 1949.Most patients here at Norfolk Clinic in Norwich consult osteopaths for joint or spinal pain but it can also help with sciatica, head pain and many type of muscular pain. Using the many and varied manual techniques, which are often very gentle and also can include spinal manipulation, patients of all ages can benefit from osteopathic treatment.
AMAZING! Verity Booth is an amazing osteopath! By simply looking at me she could see where the problem was! She has helped me to overcome a back complaint over the past few months. Verity helped me come off all the strong pain medication I had been put on and I have been able to return to driving, walking, exercising and living life to the full. Aside from her gentle osteopathy Verity is very calming and listened to all my woes carefully and helped me regain confidence in my body again. I have every faith that should it flare up again that she will be able to help me. I would strongly recommend her services to any of my friends and family.
