Our mission is the relief and prevention of pain

The best Edinburgh Osteopath for pain relief AND prevention

Back pain and sciatica specialist.  And often referred to as “the best Osteopath in Edinburgh”.  Gavin has over 30 years of experience, specialising in the treatment of lower back pain and sciatica at his West End clinic. But of course we can help you with much more than back pain and sciatica. From headaches to ankle sprains, we can help. We’ll look for the long-term contributing factors. Not just stop with the obvious.

Gavin has authored two books on lower back pain  And created an online course for lower back pain and sciatica.

Do you believe prevention is better than cure? We do.

Edinburgh's best Osteopathic Clinic core values

You want results, and we want to deliver. You define the SMART goals you’re aiming for and we do everything we can to support you in achieving those results. If we don’t measure it, it won’t get done.

In nature, nothing stays the same – everything is growing or withering. We choose growth and innovation, because we don’t want to wither and fail. We want the same for our clients. Our practices evolve as our education expands.

We are in the healthcare industry. We care passionately about you and our colleagues, and live to serve both.

We want to make a big difference, so we have to think big and encourage others to do the same. Small goals won’t motivate you for long. We need to talk about the difficult stuff and avoid sugar-coating. Playing around the fringes of problems won’t make a big impact, nor get the lasting results you – and we – are looking for.
