As Key Healthcare Workers we are able to remain open during this latest lockdown. Looking after your health has never been more important than now so please be reassured that we will still be able to treat you. 

To ensure your safety we pre-screen and triage every person before a face to face session is offered at the Clinic.   We wear PPE during your treatment, rooms are cleaned after each session and we leave extra time between appointments.

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

I’m Clinical Director at the Shefford Osteopathic Clinic, which I started  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

to make an appointment to see if osteopathy can help you.

Lucy Struthers

I really can’t thank Karen enough for her help over the years. I now see her on a regular basis to maintain my mobility and flexibility, as I really feel this is a big factor to keep both me and the horses performing as we are. I would highly recommend her.
