Osteopathy is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment that lays its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. It examines the structure and function of the body and how parts of the body (bones, joints, ligaments, discs, muscles, tendons and nerves) work together. A breakdown of the body’s normal working patterns can result in unnecessary stress and pain. This can be caused by one major event or the cumulative effect of repetitive minor strains. Osteopathy's main strength is the unique way the patient is assessed from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint and the safe, natural, manual methods of treatment applied to suit the individual needs of the patient.

The aim of osteopathy is to help the body repair itself by restoring normal function to the areas which are causing the symptoms. Osteopaths use their hands both to investigate the underlying causes of pain and to carry out treatment.

Our Osteopaths

Val Wardle has been working in south Cumbria since qualifying in Naturopathic Osteopathy in 1999. She uses a mainly structural approach, but also includes some ‘cranial’ techniques that are suitable for everyone but especially older people and young children.

Mary-Clare Scragg qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in 1986 and has since built up a busy broad based osteopathic practice in Barrow and Ulverston. Alongside traditional structural osteopathic techniques she has furthered her interest in functional and cranial techniques at post graduate level. She has also studied at Wat Po Traditional Medical School in Thailand and uses acupressure and dry needling when appropriate. It was a result of talking to colleagues that Mary-Clare set up Queen Street Consulting Rooms to allow excellence to be perused in health.

Tim Webb After 15 years in the IT industry Tim retrained as an Osteopath in 1998. Since qualifying he has lived and worked in Cumbria. He has completed several post graduate courses including Acupuncture which he incorporates into his treatments. Tim has an active interest in all aspects of complementary medicine.
