Approaches used by Osteopaths
Osteopathy has been in the UK for over 100 years! Considered an effective and safe treatment for a great number of our health problems.
Osteopaths think of the body as an inter-connected whole.
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 our bodies need a “helping hand”.
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 Sports Rehab, hands-on treatment and advice to longer term management, exercise prescription 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.

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.
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 have been seeing Charles since he started in Barry in 2007 as I suffer from neck arthritis (cervical spondylosis), which causes much stiffness and pain. I was not prepared to go along the route of daily painkillers and find a regular mix of Osteopathy and Acupuncture from Charles allows me to get on with my life with the minimum of fuss.
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.
Charles has allowed me to be headache free for quite some time now. I used to have daily nagging headaches that often would turn into a migraine leaving me unable to function. For the longest time, I thought I could just keep taking medication to have the pain subside. Then, my friend referred me to Charles and he was able to pinpoint a misalignment in both my back and neck that was triggering the pain. After the first treatment I felt different & after some more my headaches have not come back. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.
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!
Afternoon Charles – just some feedback, even though my leg is sore and tender I’m walking a lot better. I’m sure over the next few days it will be back to normal. Also slept a lot better, so I’d like to thank you, you seem to have sorted it.
I went to see Charles on a recommendation from a neighbour because my knee pain was getting worse and affecting my Nordic walking. On questioning Charles suggested my problem really stemmed from a previous ankle injury that had never fully recovered. After 4 sessions, I could not believe the difference, and I’m now being back on the poles!. Thanks Charles
Charles, just wanted to say a belated thank you for your treatment of my back and your introduction to Indah and her Pilates class. I went riding last week for the first time since and my back was fine – legs were iffy but aching in a good way! Thank you again and as long as I keep active, I am confident my back will remain strong – hope these are not famous last words!
