Osteopath on NHS?

I injured my back on Saturday, and am still having loads of pain.

I used to see an osteopath years ago but know it was expensive, so I wondered if you can get refered to an osteopath by your GP. As I don't really have the money to spare at the moment.

I've tried on numerous occasions to get refered, but as it's alternative medcine and the results are unproven they won't do it.

However I have finally got my DD refered by a young doctor, but only because I said our Health insurance would pay (happy to refer then if I feel it works).

Good luck. It costs about £35 to £40 per session, so if you can afford it may be worth having a few sessions.
