About us

Our history

Framework Clinics has grown from a partnership of two osteopaths in 2000 to its present form, with an experienced team of osteopaths and physiotherapists.

We provide a broad range of services for individuals and corporate clients.

Our osteopaths and physiotherapists are talented people who are highly trained and have been practicing for many years. We all undertake additional training every year to maintain our knowledge and skills, we are registered with our relevant professional bodies and are properly insured.

We are all able to treat a wide range of conditions and complaints and we all have special areas of interest and experience. We are certain that whatever you bring us, we have experience of treating it.

Given the job we do you would expect us to be active, and we are! Between us we have a variety of active interests such as running, swimming, climbing, road cycling, mountain biking, hillwalking, orienteering, and horse riding. Some of us have competed at high levels and some of us still do. Scroll down to read about us…
