Charles practices his Osteopathy on the simple premise that if a person’s body is allowed to work properly, then there are very few conditions which do not respond to Osteopathic treatment.
After all, the body wants to heal itself.

Approaches used by Osteopaths
Osteopathy has been in the UK for over 100 years! Considered one of the most effective and safe treatments for a great number of our health problems.
Osteopaths think of the body as an inter-connected whole and Treatment is “hands on” using gentle stretching, massage, mobilisation and manipulation. This aims to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems helping the body to help itself.
Recovering from a Sports or Work Related injury can be frustrating. Sometimes we need to help the body help itself.
By using the drug-free hands-on approach that focuses on the health of the whole body not just the injured or affected part, you can start on the road to recovery.
Osteopathy can help with initial treatment and advice to longer term management and rehabilitation
Western Acupuncture is a therapeutic treatment involving the insertion of fine single-use acupuncture needles into the muscles and structures around the joints.
Many people find it a relaxes and soothes; some find relief from pain. Others have found it useful for immediate treatment for Sports Injuries or other acute problems.
However, there are many receptive to this approach and find it helps them manage their pain.

My back was hurt during an accident at work. I first went to a Physiotherapist and then saw a Chiropractor, both with limited success. I finally contacted Charles who I knew from friend recommendations. After only 3 treatments I had made more progress than all the other treatments put together. I am no longer receiving treatment and only following a set of exercises which Charles has given me. He is still in regular contact with me to monitor my progress. I wish I had gone to him sooner.
I’ve had several unhappy experiences with osteopaths and chiropractors before settling on Charles, but because he explains what he is doing and his manner is very calming, even when I have a silly or very painful injury, I always feel safe being treated by him. I trust his treatments and his advice and he is always happy to liaise with my G.P. to make sure that I’m receiving the appropriate treatment for any or all of my issues. It’s tricky to find a reliable, local osteopath, who fees are reasonable (and who has Saturday appointments), so I’m happy to recommend Charles for head to toe treatment.
I completed my Half Iron-man Triathlon event with NO issues with my legs…..sorry that’s not quite correct. They bloody well ache and have done so for the past few days but that was to be expected as I do not run between events. But I am not complaining. Much to my surprise I came 3rd in my age group and ended up with a Bronze medal in the National Championships. So your expertise had a positive effect. Great meeting you and sorry you are not closer to me but with your positive attitude you will never be short of work.
It’s been 7 months since I fell off my bike. I went to A&E and my GP, they took x-rays and said everything seemed normal, that I would just have some pain for a few days. A few days actually turned into several weeks, so at the suggestion of a friend, I went to see Charles. He examined the arm & neck and treated the area, after a few treatments I began to feel better and became to feel more confident than before. I never would’ve thought to see an Osteopath to help with my pain, but I’m sure glad now that I did.
As a builder, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is physical and in all weathers. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Charles and his magic hands seemed to do the trick. He stressed the importance of my posture and correct use when lifting. At the appointments, he would manipulate and massage my neck, back, shoulders and arms. Within weeks, my pain subsided and I don’t feel the same tension when working. Thanks, Charles!
Charles listened to what we thought! The first time someone in the “medical” profession has done that. He examined and suggested what was causing the ankle problem in my daughter. His approach proved to have very good results. Charles has given me confidence in Osteopathy and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
I have benefited tremendously from the care Charles gave me. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible. Thanks again Mr Millward for helping me get my swing back. I appreciate everything you’ve done for me.
Charles just wanted to express my gratitude for your work today. It has made a huge difference. As the day progressed the pain and stiffness has eased dramatically. Thank you!
Although it’s just over three weeks since I first visited you, I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for your very helpful treatment. After I left I felt very energised and quite well, (many times before with others I’ve felt ill and shivery) and I had the best neck treatment ever that left no head-achy side effects.
I was very impressed with the Osteopathic care I received from Charles. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but Osteopathy was different for me. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received.
