Osteopathic Treatment

Here at The LittleJohn Clinic, we use osteopathy to treat and prevent muscle, joint and ligament conditions and relieve the effects of these on a person's health. We believe this helps your body in preventing illness and promotes healing.
Osteopathy is holistic and doesn't just treat the symptoms of a condition. It takes into account your lifestyle, medical history and personal circumstances.
Osteopathy treats most musculoskeletal conditions from tight jaws and tension headaches, all the way through to foot problems, and everything in between, this is done through join articulation and manipulation (where you hear/feel a click), soft tissue treatment (massage) and other musculoskeletal/orthopedic techniques. Contrary to popular belief the manipulations don't usually hurt the patient. We use digital range of motion testing to show you the functional gain you may experience from treatment. Some people even compare osteopathy as being a cross between a physiotherapist and a chiropractor.
All osteopaths are state registered, insured and have undergone 4 or 5 year full time university degree courses.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy can be beneficial in treating painful conditions, and in promoting soft tissue healing.
Ultrasound is a very high frequency vibration that can penetrate down to deep levels, to ease and provide a massage to hard to reach muscle. The experience is quite pleasant and usually patients don't feel anything. Therapeutic ultrasound has been in use for many years by musculoskeletal therapists, such as osteopaths, physiotherapists and chiropractors.
It may help reduce your pain in conditions such as myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, sprains, scar tissue pain and many more.


We use electrotherapy methods, such as interferential, for a variety of conditions.
These treatments can benefit you in rehabilitating weakened muscles, helping to promote the repair of soft tissues, or to relieve muscle spasms.

Ergonomics Consultancy

Many health problems are thought to be caused by the misalignment of muscles or joints and poor posture.
We can advise you in ways to improve your posture, therefore improving the structure and in-turn the function, problems will be alleviated and you will return to good health.

Cranialsacral Osteopathy

Minor restrictions in the body's mobility system can prevent the body's own intrinsic ability to heal itself, leading to more serious and damaging conditions.
We use cranialsacral osteopathy as a subtle and refined treatment to encourage the release of stresses and tensions throughout the body and the head. It is a gentle and yet extremely effective approach. This tends to be more popular for babies and young children, especially if they have had any particular birthing processes (eg ventouse, forceps).
