Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions.
We offer osteopathy services at Basinghall Clinic, our diagnostic outpatient clinic in the City.
Osteopaths are highly trained Allied Health Professionals, with a well-deserved, evidence-based reputation for expertise in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.
Osteopaths deal with the evaluation, diagnosis and management of the musculoskeletal system, and its relationship with other systems in the body. All osteopaths are highly trained and registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
Osteopathy can help with a wide range of conditions that affect the muscles, ligaments, bones and joints and is suitable for people of all ages, including those who are pregnant.
You might choose to visit an osteopath for one of the following concerns:
- Lower back pain
- Neck pain not associated with an injury
- Shoulder or elbow pain
- Arthritic conditions
- Neuromuscular conditions (sciatica)
- Pelvis, hip, or leg issues
- Sports injuries
- Muscle and joint pain
Your osteopath will take the time to understand your symptoms, medical history and lifestyle which in turn will help them make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your issue. They will then do a physical examination, including asking you to make simple movements and stretches.
Your osteopath will then discuss a treatment plan with you.
Treatment will often involve manual therapy – a range of hands-on techniques that focus on manipulation, releasing tension, stretching muscles and improving mobility – together with exercises and helpful advice designed to help you relieve or manage your pain, keep active and maintain the best of health.
