Providing Osteopathic Care for the whole family...

Our Derbyshire Osteopathic Practice

Paul Ashburner, is a fully Registered Osteopath and Cranial Osteopath and after many years of running a busy full-time practice in Derby since the early 80's, the move to the Derbyshire hills has enabled him to cater for the needs of local people from the towns and villages of the Peak District, Derbyshire Dales and Amber Valley Districts.

Operating from a single location on the outskirts of Ripley and with easy access from the A38, this serves patients from Alfreton, Ripley, Belper, Crich, Wirksworth, Bonsall, Winster, Darley Dale, Matlock. Many of his previous patients are now travelling from Derby, and as far away as Ashbourne, Uttoxeter, Mansfield, Chesterfield, Newark and Lincoln to seek his help. It is heartening to see several generations of the same family in our waiting rooms at times.
