Traditional Osteopathy London

What is structural osteopathy?

Osteopathy is an established, recognised health care system designed to diagnose, manage, treat and prevent a wide range of medical conditions. Osteopathic treatment is based on the principle that no part of the body exists in isolation and that the primary focus on the musculoskeletal system (the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues) is a key component of overall health and wellbeing. Osteopaths believe that for your body to work well, its structure must also work well, for the aim of the treatment is to restore the body into a state of balance. The treatment is a manual approach like all osteopathic practices designed to the individual needs of each patient.


It can contribute to the treatment and management of the following conditions: 

  • General aches and pains, including Fibromyalgia pain 

  • Joint pain including arthritis pain 

  • Pelvis, hip, knee pain

  • General, acute and chronic back pain

  • Neck pain, headaches and migraine prevention

  • Shoulder or elbow pain including frozen shoulder and tennis elbow 

  • Muscle spasms

  • Minor sporting injuries and tensions

  • Disc injuries 

  • Tension and inability to relax

  • Poor circulation

  • Rheumatism 

  • Hyper-mobility symptoms 

  • Digestion issues

  • Arthritis>>

How does osteopathy work? 

Osteopathic diagnosis involves examining muscles and joints using touch, observing posture and the patient’s range of movements to detect and diagnose any abnormalities within the musculoskeletal system. Osteopathy treatment includes a combination of muscle and connective tissue stretching, joint articulation, gentle traction and manipulation, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, cranial techniques, exercise and postural advice depending on what the individual requires. Through these techniques osteopathy aims to increase the mobility of joints, relieve soft muscle tension, enhance blood supply and drainage to the body's tissues to allow the body to heal. It is an osteopath’s objective to restore the body to its peak functional ability. 

What will happen during the appointment?

The initial consultation is 60 minutes long and involves taking a full case history where we will discuss how your condition impacts you and affects your life and a 30-minute osteopathic treatment. A full physical examination will be completed and then a diagnosis can be given for your condition. We will discuss how the treatment works, the research that supports this treatment approach as well as a prognosis and an out-line for the tailored follow up treatment plan to improve your quality of life and support you during the recovery process.
