Welcome to OsteoEsprit.

Move better, feel better, live better!

OsteoEsprit was established in 2016 to provide Osteopathic healthcare to Chichester and the surrounding areas. We offer different healthcare options to suit each individual, providing patient specific treatment for people of all ages and backgrounds.

Osteopathy is a physical medicine regulated by The General Osteopathic Council. Founded in 1874 in the United States, Osteopathy is now regarded as a leading healthcare choice.

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with both the structure and function of the body and treatment is tailored to reduce tensions and restrictions. Osteopaths believe that for the body to work effortlessly, the structure must work perfectly. Using a combination of mobilisation, stretching and massage, the Osteopath will aim to restore a state of balance to the body by improving joint mobility, decreasing muscle tensions and improving blood and nerve supplies.

Nutritional advice and exercise prescription may well be provided to continue improvement and reduce the reoccurrence of injury.

Suitable for many musculoskeletal conditions including headaches, pregnancy discomfort, back/neck pain, shoulder/elbow/wrist pain, hip/knee/ankle pain, plantar fasciitis, postural pain and many more.

You do not have to be an athlete to experience the benefits of sports massage. Desk based workers and inactive people can gain great relief from stress and muscle soreness/tightness.

Treatment will consist of deep tissue massage, myofascial release and stretching to help restore normal function.

Medical acupuncture is a system which can help the body in three areas:

  • Prevention of illness
  • Promotion of health
  • Treatment of injury

Acupuncture can be used as a single treatment modality, or incorporated alongside other therapies.

Suitable for many musculoskeletal conditions including headaches, back pain, shoulder pain, hip and knee pain.

Nutritional advice is an effective way to promote healthy living and vitality. An individual tailored plan will be discussed to fit into your lifestyle, whether you are suffering from digestive pain or in need of support for weight management.

Recipes, food diary plans and healthy living advice will be implemented to provide long term support in achieving your goals.

During the first session a full case history will be taken including questions about current symptoms, general health, past medical history and family history. Following this, a full assessment will be undertaken. The patient will complete some movements (if possible) and then the Osteopath will continue by using hands on contact, to understand the presenting injury. Once a diagnosis has been concluded the treatment options will be discussed with the patient.

During follow up sessions questions will be asked about how the patient is feeling following treatment, and further assessments will be done to determine what progression has been made. Further treatment will be given if appropriate.

This is a very tricky question to answer as it is very much specific to each patient. It is dependent on severity of injury and other factors. Most patients will see change following the first session, with the majority of treatment plans lasting between 3-6 sessions.

Usually not. Occasionally, however, patients do report some local soreness following treatment, this tends to last for no longer than 48 hours.

Some patients will feel the needles inserted, but this is a minimal pain. Once the needles are in place, no pain will be felt. The needles used in acupuncture are very thin and strong, each needle is used only once so there is no risk of infection from treatment.
