Back and Neck Pain Treatment as an NHS patient.

The Walsingham Clinic is very pleased to offer patients Osteopathic treatment for neck and back pain on the NHS via the AQP (Any Qualified Provider) Pathway.

This is provided in accordance with NICE guidelines (CG88) for care of these conditions.

Your GP should let you choose where to receive treatment should they refer you. Osteopathy in Truro is listed under The Walsingham Clinic.

  • Degenerative ( wear and tear) pain
