About Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a holistic system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions including generalised aches and pains, headaches, arthritic pain, upper and lower back pain, neck pain, tennis & golfers elbow, shoulder pain, hand & wrist pain, sciatica, hip and knee pain, digestion problems and foot and ankle pain.

Osteopathy is a manual therapy, similar to physiotherapy and chiropractic, that works with the structure and function of the body. Most osteopaths work privately so you do not need a referral from your GP to begin treatment.

What To Expect

Initial consultations last around 1 hour and during this time a detailed case history will be taken to find out details of general health, lifestyle and medical history. During the examination you may be asked to dress down to your underwear or sportswear to allow a proper posture analysis. Further non-invasive medical or orthopaedic tests may be carried out if necessary, for example blood pressure may be taken. Management of patients may involve soft-tissue stretching and massage, joint mobilisation, manipulation thrust techniques, and lifestyle and exercise advice. Some patients may feel a little sore after treatment for 24-48 hours. A suggested management plan will be discussed during the initial consultation. To find out more about what to expect please visit our FAQ page or the General Osteopathic Council website.

Patient 1

Thank you for your professional assessment and treatment of my lower lumbar region problem on Thursday evening- it made a difference. This was my first visit to an osteopath after many years of seeing physiotherapists for various sports injuries. I think your clinic is an excellent addition to the services and facilities offered by the Hurlingham Club. I would encourage other members to avail themselves of osteopathic treatments.

Patient 2

I have suffered from headaches since starting work in the summer. Holly was able to identify the source of pain in my neck and upper back. She used osteopathic manipulation and acupuncture techniques to successfully relieve the headaches. Since I have been doing the exercises given to me and following her lifestyle advice I have had no headaches. Highly reccomend!
