But as we’re working on pain relief we also have an eye on prevention at this early stage. Sixty percent of lower back pains recur within a year. So, it’s vitally important that you think about the steps back from the edge of “The Cliff of Pain” as you progress up it. First appointment with us is £72 and follow-up appointments are £62.
We ask you to fill in an online form before your appointment. This is so that we can start thinking about your problem before we even see you.
At your first appointment you can tell us all about your problem. We might ask you a few more questions to fill in any blanks. Then we’ll examine you, explain what’s wrong with you and what options there are to help you. Treatment is normally provided during the first appointment, and short term advice is given to help you recover as quickly as possible. See what others have said.
Bear in mind, we are not only Edinburgh osteopaths. We have massage therapy, nutritional therapy and movement coaching.
Prices are tailored to individual needs. We think nothing of regular check-ups and scale and polish for our thirty two (if you’re lucky) teeth! You have twenty six movable vertebrae, twenty two discs and one hundred and forty supporting muscles in your spine. And a whole lot of nerves! Shouldn’t you be looking after them?

Musculoskeletal problems are the most common cause of absence from work. If you want your team to be as healthy as they can be and to get back to work from musculoskeletal problems quickly and safely – minimising the risk of long-term disability and reducing the cost of sickness absenteeism – contact Clinic Director, Gavin Routledge at [email protected] or on 0131 221 1415.
If you are an HR professional looking to reduce the cost of employee absenteeism due to back pain or mental illness such as stress, providing an in-house health care system may be the answer you are looking for. We can provide talks on fitness and back care directly to your employees. See our videos on Ergonomics and Desk Exercises for a sample of what we can offer your organisation in the way of educational, engaging advice on how to sit at work, as well as the best exercises to do at the workstation. We recommend DSE Scotland for desk assessments.
If you are an employee interested in encouraging your organisation to set up in-house services, please feel free to share this page and pass on the free guides.
Some of our seminars are provided free, just ask Gavin for details. Health insurance can fund osteopathy services. Many companies opt to pay for or subsidise the cost of services as they recognise the benefits of their employees being in the best health possible. Active X Back is registered with all main health insurers.
