Why We're Different At Taunton Health...
If you go and see an osteopath, chiropractor or physiotherapist you generally want them to work at the site of pain so that the pain goes. However this is just chasing symptoms and doesn't necessarily fix the underlying problem.
ONLY YOUR BODY CAN HEAL ITSELF. Once it is understood that the body has an inbuilt ability to self heal and self-regulate it becomes clear that removing the barriers to your bodies full recovery is the correct path forwards.
That is how Taunton Health gets it's practice members not only pain free but also feeling and functioning back to their best once again.
If you've been suffering with ongoing pain, reduced mobility, suffering health or simply feeling older than you are then perhaps your body needs help to get back to it's best.
Our goal is to remove interference from the most important system in your body - your nervous system.
James is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and is always available to answer any questions you might have. To make an enquiry simply head over to our contact page.
If you are thinking of seeing an osteopath Taunton or chiropractor Taunton you probably have some questions. Below is a short Q&A to help answer some of those questions.
Q: Difference between a chiropractor and osteopath and what do they do?
A: An osteopath and chiropractor both can use similar techniques and people will often go to them for similar problems. The true difference really lies in the underlying philosophy of the profession and the intention behind their techniques and treatment.
Without going into too much detail what is important to understand is that you need to find someone who can help you with a approach that corrects the underlying cause of your problem and that could come from a chiropractor or an osteopath.
Correcting the underlying cause of the problem really means not simply finding the painful area and massaging it and hoping it feels better. Having a massage is really the job of a masseuse and not an osteopath or chiropractor. Correcting the underlying cause of the problem means carrying out a thorough examination and assessment to fully understand why the pain or problem is there and then working out exactly what needs to be done to remove or correct what is found so that the barriers are removed and the body can get not only pain free but also back to optimal health, function and wellness once again.
Q: Do you just see people in Taunton or do you also cover local areas such as Wellington and Bridgwater?
A: At Taunton Health we obviously see the majority of people from Taunton. However we help many people from all around Somerset including Wellington, Bridgwater and all the surrounding villages. People understand that once they find a solution to their pain and problems the journey is worth it.
Q: Is osteopathy, chiropractic and physiotherapy safe?
A: Yes osteopathy, chiropractic and physiotherapy is all proven over and over again to not only be extremely effective but also very safe. Anything will carry a degree of risk whether you choose to do some exercise, yoga, pilates, see a chiropractor or osteopath etc. However the risk of these routes are extremely low and many people like to explore these routes compared to jumping straight into medication and surgery which also carry their own risks.
An osteopath and chiropractor have 4-5 years of training which give them a great ability to decide whether your problem is something they can safely help or whether you need to be referred to your general practitioner.
Q: Should I consider seeing a chiropractor, physiotherapist or osteopath?
A: These hands on professions have the ability to get your body healing and functioning back to their best. This often means that they can help people in pain such as back pain, neck pain or headaches, improve people’s function and mobility, optimise the way their body is able to express its full health potential and the best part is that they are all very conservative forms of treatment.

Q: I heard that I can use my insurance to claim for osteopathy, chiropractic and physiotherapy. Is this correct?
A: An osteopath, chiropractor and physio are all regulated professions which means that for a practitioner to use these titles they have to constantly register with a governing body.
You can claim for treatment provided by these professions if you have health insurance and the amount that you can claim for varies depending on your insurer or individual policy.
At Taunton Health, James is registered with the General Osteopathic Council so we are able to accept insurance.
