Mayfield Osteopaths

Osteopathy is beneficial for all age groups. We provide treatment for a multitude of ailments such as sciatica, muscular problems, arthritis, sports injuries, frozen shoulder, neck pain, headaches, migraine, sinusitis, colic in babies and much more.


The last few years in Mayfield have been fantastic, it's been lovely being able to help so many people and being a part of the mayfield community. Last year we welcomed Dan Wilkinson to the team, he is available on Tuesday and Saturdays. Dan is a keen rugby player and therefore can provide great advice to people with sporting injuries. He is also trained as a visceral and cranial osteopath. 



Laura Knight - I opened Mayfield Osteopaths in 2007 having returned from Oman where I worked as the only female Osteopath. Prior to training as an osteopath I trained to be a nurse.


We also have two other osteopaths on the team:

Ben Leamon

Mav Anderson


What is Osteopathy?

Osteopaths are similar to a physiotherapist and chiropractor, although we tend to work more holistically, therefore treating the body as a whole.  

We work to improve the bodies function by working on the muscles, ligaments and joints to stimulate the nervous system and blood flow.

Osteopaths believe that if your body's structure is in good working order then it will function to it's optimum.

Osteopaths undergo an intense 4 year degree course (link to GOSc) which they are taught in-depth anatomy, physiology and pharmacology alongside the osteopathic techniques and massage.

What to expect

A case history is taken for each patient outlining their current complaint, medications, past medical and family history. Then if the patient is suitable for treatment and examination will take place, if not we will refer to the GP or such like.

Osteopaths are known for their high velocity thrusts (the loud clicks!). From my experience, patients can be nervous of this kind of treatment. We ensure that all treatment plans are discussed and that the patient is comfortable. Other methods of treatment are massage, articulation and cranial. 

Who can be treated?

We treat newborn babies all the way through to 100 year olds!

It is a common misconception that we only treat back pain, in fact osteopathy can treat a variety of complaints for example, Colic in babies Growing pains in children Sports injuries Sciatica Tennis elbow Frozen shoulder Headaches Migraines Whiplash Arthritis Maternity problems and much much more......
