At North Norfolk Osteopaths we offer a thorough and professional approach, providing high quality treatment in a calm and supportive environment. We are located between Fakenham and Dereham and provide osteopathic healthcare to these areas and surrounding communities.
With over 20 years experience in healthcare and health and fitness, we offer expertise in diagnosis and treatment. We provide specialist osteopathic treatment aiming to reduce symptoms, alleviate pain and improve mobility and function for a wide range of problems associated with muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints. This includes back pain, neck pain, sporting injuries, joint and muscle aches and pains, work related postural injuries and strains, and aches and pains associated with growing older.
We provide treatments for pregnancy related postural pain e.g. pelvic girdle pain, aching legs, back pain, rib pain and many more. These treatments are gentle and provide effective relief from pain and discomfort.
We offer gentle osteopathic treatment for babies and children. Treatment can be soothing and helpful for babies with unsettled behavior and other minor conditions of early life. We treat children and adolescents for developmental problems and pain symptoms.
Our treatments are holistic and tailored to the individual needs of the patient. They can be used by people of all ages, helping both acute and long standing complaints.
If you would like to learn how to massage your baby with techniques that can help sooth some of the common baby problems e.g. digestive problems, teething, nasal congestion? We offer baby massage classes for both group and one to one sessions. Our instructor is certified by the IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage). Our classes are friendly and fun, offering a unique opportunity for you to enhance your bond with your baby through nurturing touch.
