About me

Caring Osteopathy offers osteopathy and medical acupuncture to people of all ages and is run by registered osteopath Joanna Figg-Latham M.ost (hons)., D.O., Sports Massage (Dip). Joanna offers appointments at The Poundbury Clinic, located in Poundbury, Dorchester, Dorset.   There is free , private off-street parking and full access into the clinic.

Additionally, Joanna offers sports massage and therapeutic ultrasound. Hands-on treatment can relieve a range of problems such as acute and chronic back pain, sciatica – trapped nerves, neck pain, shoulder complaints, joint, ligament and muscular pain, sports injuries and a number of conditions.

Osteopathy considers the whole body, not just its parts. Osteopaths look for health in your body rather than just your pain. A wide variety of techniques are offered and are gentle.

Medical, or modern, acupuncture is an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture. It involves the insertion of needles for muscular pain relief and to stimulate the nervous system to relieve pain and promote healing. Very often, tight painful bands within a muscle, called a ‘trigger points’, cause pain to be experienced at a distance from the trigger point itself. This and other conditions including arthritis, Fibromyalgia and headaches are suitable for treatment by acupuncture. Fine, disposable single-use needles are inserted into points in the body and gently moved. Although the sensation varies from person to person, it is usually painless and relieves discomfort.

Joanna is knowledgeable, approachable and eager to identify the cause of your complaint and return your body to optimal health. Joanna is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and is a member of the British Medical Acupuncture Society.

The room is professionally set-up and equipped for treatment. Joanna is also listed with major insurance companies and her premises and practice are fully insured.
