Osteopathic Treatment

Osteopathy

Welcome to the Osteopathy division of our practice. We offer the very best in patient care and high quality treatment in a warm and homely environment. We treat all aspects of Osteopathy offering a range of health supports, hydrotherapy, orthotics, dry needling, naturopathy, disc rehabilitation programmes, postural exercises, rehabilitation exercises, sports massage, spinal assessment.

Osteopathy is a safe, gentle and effective approach using hands-on techniques to diagnose and treat a wide range of health problems, aiming to relieve pain, discomfort and immobility.

The osteopathic philosophy is to treat the person as a whole, not just the specific symptoms. By improving the function of the whole body, osteopathy helps to stimulate the body’s own self-healing self-regulating processes, aiding a return to health.

Its emphasis is on the interrelationship of the body’s structure – such as muscles, bones, joints, nerves etc – and its function such as breathing, circulation, digestion, metabolism etc. It is widely used throughout the world and recognised as one of the most highly effective complementary therapies with a vast and expanding base of scientifically validated research.

During a consultation the osteopath will take a thorough case history and help assess and diagnose each patient, and if necessary, refer to other health care providers as required. They will observe your posture and ask you to perform some simple movements to help assess how your body is functioning and why you are experiencing your symptoms. Your past medical history, occupation, exercise regime, and any other factors which may be affecting your overall wellbeing, are also taken into consideration.

Most treatment is usually necessary to remove disease or help alleviate symptoms. To maintain good health you need to follow the advice your Osteopath may give you relating to your treatment. Home care plays a major role in preventing further problems and that in turn will help you minimize the need for future treatment. If you do not understand your part in your care, please ask for an explanation.

A written estimate and treatment plan will be provided for any extensive treatment. If you would like to make an appointment please telephone 020 8886 1411 and we will be pleased to arrange a convenient time for you.

Testimonials

  • "Dentist & Osteopath on the Hill is an essential part of my career as a professional dancer and I have complete trust in the practice. The treatment, care and advice I receive is always of the highest quality and the level of understanding needed to maintain my body is second to none. I cannot recommend the practice enough whether for osteopathic treatment, sports massage or simply expert advice."

  • "I was personally recommended this osteopath by a friend and I have since been having regular treatments with her for the last 7 years. On my initial consultation they found out all about me and my medical history. They were very friendly and welcoming and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I found them extremely knowledgeable, highly competent and with high standards. I had been having a consistent lower back pain with stiffness and after assessment, observation and treatment, the Osteopath discovered that the pain was actually not in my back, but caused by a problem in my neck. With extremely effective manipulation it has made a great difference to my mobility, in my neck and back, and my body overall, and after treatment they always follow up with easy to do exercises at home. She is honest and understanding, always accommodating and runs a well organised practice. She has also treated my relatives and I would highly recommend her. I always look forward to my regular treatments with her, and I am very grateful for all her help."

  • "I have known this Osteopath for several years now, during which time she has helped me with my rheumatoid arthritis. Although I take medication for the condition, her osteopathic efforts have undoubtedly made life a good deal more bearable for me, so much so that I am able to pursue an active sporting life – tennis and golf principally – which I would probably not be able to do otherwise. She is a knowledgeable and a highly professional practitioner with an extremely pleasant manner, who I would unhesitatingly recommend to anyone needing osteopathic treatment. "
