The Practice

The Joanne Danby osteopathic practice was established in 1990 and moved to its present premises in 2018. Clients come to see Joanne from a wide area covering all of Lancashire and also as far afield as the South Lakes, Manchester and the Yorkshire Dales. The practice is regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), a state registered body. The GOsC sets the standard for osteopathic education and requires osteopaths to keep up to date with a yearly programme of continuing professional development.

Osteopathy is a hands-on treatment used to diagnose and treat all kinds of aches and pains in the body. Osteopathy works with the structure and function of the body which means that the osteopath looks at how different parts of the body, the skeleton, all the bones, the joints, the muscles, the ligaments, the tendons, the nerves and all the connective tissues function smoothly together. Each of these are interlinked and work together within the body so that if one area is not working properly it will have a knock on effect on other areas.

Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial osteopathy is a gentle, non-invasive hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve health and performance. It is a refined and subtle series of techniques that focus primarily on the head, spinal column and sacral bone of the pelvis and their interrelationships - facilitating release of stresses and tensions from these areas.

Medical Acupuncture

Medical acupuncture is a therapeutic technique that involves inserting fine needles into certain points across the body to encourage healing and pain relief. Also referred to as western acupuncture, the practice differs from the ancient Chinese practice it derives from. Whilst still using needles to stimulate the body's natural healing abilities, it doesn't adhere to the concepts of Qi or yin/yang, as followed in Chinese acupuncture.

Latest Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance

As regulated healthcare professionals, osteopaths have been allowed to continue working throughout the COVID-19 epidemic. However, I, along with the majority of other UK practices, closed for a short period until it became clear just how I could provide as safe an environment as possible for clients to visit. I reopened on 29th June. I have put procedures in place to bring practice operations in line with the required infection control guidance and the use of PPE. I will give you more information when you contact me to book an appointment but the main differences from usual are that I ask you to wear a face mask for the duration of the appointment and to use the hand sanitiser on my desk when you arrive.

Your Appointment

If you have been offered a face-to-face appointment following the pre-screening call, it is extremely important that you don't attend if :-

  • You are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms including a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
  • You have been in contact with anyone confirmed to have COVID-19 within the last 14 days.
