My name is Karen Robinson –  I’ve been a practising qualified Osteopath since graduating from the European School of Osteopathy in 1997.

I started the Shefford Osteopathic Clinic in 2000 with the aim of bringing the benefits of osteopathy to people in Bedfordshire.  Since I started the Clinic my team and I have helped over 20,000 patients enjoy life more due to:

  • Less pain
  • Greater mobility
  • Increased flexibility

My team and I are proactive about ongoing learning, keeping up-to-date with osteopathy and other areas of exercise and well-being. Many of us are actively involved with teaching osteopaths, shaping the future of our profession. Our aim is to help you to live your life with your body working as well as possible.

If you’re suffering from any of these things
– and want to enjoy life again without pain
– then why not call us at Shefford Osteopathic Clinic on

What our patients say

A Farming Client

Sarah Moxey

Dear Karen, Thank you so much for sorting me out yet again. Lifting a delightful 11kg grandson is always a pleasure, though tinged with nervousness as to how the dear old back will cope with it. After grinning and bearing shoulder pain, I did what I should have done much earlier and made an appointment to see you. Magic!

Kate Brennan

Many thanks to Karen for helping me with my postpartum recovery focussing on pelvic discomfort. Karen utilised a technique which used her extensive knowledge of different practices from around the world. Despite being a little different from the norm it provided rapid pain relief and has helped me feel back to normal. Sincere thanks.
