At Rakhee Osteopathy, you can expect an osteopath clinic London W1 that is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and abides by its professional code of conduct and practices. This means that we are duty-bound to offer the very best quality care to our patients.

Before we get to the benefits of treatment, we need to answer the following questions - what is osteopathy and why would you need to visit an osteopath clinic London W1?

What to know about osteopathy

Osteopathy is a non-invasive form of treatment that provides relief from multiple conditions that result in pain, restricted joint mobility and a reduced quality of life. Common conditions that would necessitate a visit to an osteopathic clinic for treatment include:

  • Sciatica

  • Arthritis

  • Slipped disc

  • Frozen shoulder

  • Neck pain

  • Back pain

  • Hip pain

  • Knee pain

  • Tennis elbow

  • Headaches and migraines

Conditions that require osteopathy at an osteopathic clinic typically have to deal with the musculoskeletal system. Tailored treatment plans comprise a combination of various approaches including myofascial release, muscle and connective tissue stretching, deep tissue massage, cranial technique, joint articulation, gentle traction and manipulation as well as exercise and postural advice.

The exact combination of treatments will depend on the type of condition the patient is suffering from. In diagnosing the patient’s condition, our osteopath will have to examine the joints and muscles of the patients and observe their movements. In addition to this, an osteopath will also have to factor in the patient’s posture.

What are the expected benefits of osteopathy?

It provides relief from tension in the body. Aches and pains in the body can be a result of tension build-up in the body. Osteopathy works to help ease this tension build-up.

It provides relief from stiffness. Stiffness in the joints is a common symptom associated with ageing. Simple manipulations on the musculoskeletal structures effectively give the patient more freedom of movement in the joints.

It provides support for the spine. Bad posture, which is so common among many people and contributed by sitting at a desk for long periods, can be the cause of many serious health problems including the spine. Osteopathy can provide much-needed support for the spine to avoid all related issues.

It can promote a faster healing process. How can osteopathic treatment help the body heal more quickly? The answer lies in the fact that these treatments help improve the blood supply in the body. Enhanced blood flow leads to faster healing.

It also provides improved joint mobility. The joints being able to move freely without causing pain is a benefit that leads directly to improved quality of life.

At our clinic, an initial consultation usually lasts for about 60 minutes. This time is used to compile a full case history of the patient and carry out a full physical examination. The osteopath will also discuss the science behind osteopathy and how this treatment will impact the patient’s life. We will also provide an outline of the treatment plan and what can be expected from it.
