About Kirsten

After graduating in London in 1992 Kirsten worked as an Osteopath in Paisley and in

the Buckingham Clinic in Glasgow and during this time gained extensive experience, before opening her Clinic in Bishopbriggs. Kirsten also trained as an Acupuncturist in 1995 and may sometimes use this to enhance and complement Osteopathic treatments.

Kirsten's treatment usually comprises of a variety of techniques. Primarily, massage and deep soft tissue work alongside joint mobilisation and osteopathic manipulative techniques. Treatment is suitable for all age groups as it is tailored to each individual patient. Kirsten will usually give exercise or postural advice as necessary and particularly enjoys the challenge of treating chronic problems.

The Facts - Back Pain

The Facts - Back PainResearch shows that 60% of the UK population will suffer from back pain at some stage during their lifetimes. A recent Health Dept report recommends physical therapy such as osteopathy as early as possible after on-set. Osteopathic treatment is particularly successful in this area and can be more effective than the old painkillers & bed rest approach.

The Facts - The Elderly

Painkillers are not the only solution for aches and pains associated with ageing. For more permanent relief it is necessary to eliminate the underlying causes of pain, a job for which the osteopath is specifically trained.
