Clare McClure BSc (Hons)

Principal Osteopath



I re located to Armitage from London and started my practice here in 2011. I qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in 2002.


The healing capacity of the body never ceases to amaze me, and I thoroughly enjoy my work as an Osteopath.


I am a structural Osteopath, working with soft tissue, articulation, mobilisation, and stretching techniques, and I am often keen to suggest exercises to speed up recovery and build strength.


I am treating more neck and shoulder problems recently due to the amount of time many people spend at computers.


To get people better is my aim, or if need be, to refer them to the appropriate health professional for further treatment.

I graduated in 2015 from the British School of Osteopathy (BSO), Europe’s oldest university for Osteopathy.


My enthusiasm for osteopathy was sparked by a story of a friend who, after many years of intense headaches, had been helped by Osteopathy.

I was fascinated by the approach this healthcare practitioner had towards pain, the drive to search and find the cause of discomfort and to relieve it. This inspired me enough to come from Wolfsburg, in Germany, to London to go through 4 years of training to become a musculoskeletal specialist.


When you come for treatment, we will start with questions about the issue that brings you to me, and your general health to give me a better understanding of you and the trouble you are suffering with. We will then move to  passive and active tests to help me determine what is going on, this helps inform my treatment and management plan for your health. From there we move to treatment and finish off with little tips to make life easier.


I am always happy to answer any questions that may arise during the consultation or even in general. Although I have successfully treated and helped different sports people ranging from Gymnasts, hand ballers to golfers and rugby players, I feel that specialising on any one patient group would deprive me of the joy of learning more and evolving further. I am just as confident in helping expectant mothers as the person that is struggling to get to the shops and back.
