Osteopathy is a highly specialised process which understands that the body functions best when healing itself and allows the function and structure of the body to stay in balance.
As one of our most popular and enduring services, osteopathy is used to treat a number of conditions (including neck, back, shoulder and head pain) in an effective manner. We restore musculoskeletal balance through a combination of massage, stretching and joint manipulation techniques – this is how our osteopaths in Clapham can relieve pain by relaxing muscles, improving circulation and calming the function of the nervous system. We understand that one of the key ways to improve your general health is to restore the ability of your body to heal itself.
Common complaints that we treat include:
- Aches and pains
- Muscle spasms
- Minor sports injuries
- Rheumatic or arthritic pain
- Plantar Frascitis
- Acute/Chronic lower back pain, including whiplash
- Neck-related Headaches or dizziness
Central to our osteopath service in Clapham is our comprehensive diagnosis where we look not just at your current problem but take a detailed and relevant case history, so that we have a full account of any previous injuries as well as your general health. This is followed by a thorough physical examination, which helps us to formulate a treatment plan.
Your first session normally takes about an hour and includes a full assessment and consultation. Putting a set timescale on treatment is hard to judge; however as a general rule long term or chronic problems take longer to deal with than more acute ones. For more complex cases our trained osteopaths in Clapham can carry out MRI, CT or ultrasound scans as well as blood and urine tests to correctly diagnose the problem.
Our osteopaths are guided and regulated both by our own high standards and those of the Statutory Register of the General Osteopathic Council (GOrC), which binds us to a strict code of conduct as well as comprehensive medical malpractice insurance. This means that our osteopaths in Clapham act with professionalism and integrity at all times. Their paramount aim is to relieve any pain or distress that you may be experiencing.
If you have any concerns about back pain or other related problems, you can take advantage of our free spinal consultation. This means that you can introduce yourself to both our skilled and friendly osteopaths in Clapham as well as our treatment methods, to see if we are the right fit for you. We offer a free no obligation spinal consultation, which is designed to help you make the best possible choice about your treatment options.
