Complete Health Osteopathy

13 Salisbury St, Blandford Forum DT11 7AU, UK – 01258 459002

I injured my shoulder playing football and woke up in agony the following morning. Complete Health Osteopathy were able to fit me in the following day. After some analysis of the injury, it appeared that my shoulder was inflamed. Chris used various techniques on my shoulder and finished of by strapping the shoulder up with muscle tape and advised me on how to speed up the healing process when I got home. The following morning I only had a fraction of the pain felt the morning previous, and the day after I was feeling no pain. I would definitely recommend Complete Health Osteopathy to a friend. Great Customer Service! Very Friendly Personnel! Affordable Prices!
