MARGARET HORNER - OSTEOPATH
Osteopathy is a recognised system of ‘hands on’ healthcare which links body structure with its ability to work at its best. Osteopaths aim to support the body’s own self-healing mechanisms and help promote good function of all its systems, including musculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory and digestive.
Osteopaths are extensively trained in anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and clinical examination to enable them to make a precise diagnosis but also we are also able to recognise conditions where osteopathic treatment may not be appropriate and promptly refer patients for further investigations by their GP.
We perform a careful postural and physical examination, and neurological tests if necessary, to get a clear picture of how an injury is affecting our patient’s whole structure and health. Our skilful use of “hands on” diagnosis and gentle techniques can help restore the balance and mobility and reduce pain.
I have years of experience in my own osteopathic practice and I’m a clinical tutor and examiner on the BSc/MSc Osteopathy course at Staffordshire University. My special interests include head/neck pain and trauma injuries.
I have worked in collaboration with Lyn since the early days of Pure Balance Pilates and I’m delighted to be working alongside Corinna at Pure Balance Health in the great new studio and clinic. Please phone the studio or call in on Thursday mornings for more information.
