Osteopathy At Our Clinic

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy works by identifying and correcting the underlying source of your health problem. We treat the cause that pain killers hide. Osteopathy is based on the fact that the body is a self-healing entity. However, sometimes it needs a bit of help. Your osteopath will offer your body that helping hand, thus allowing it to heal itself naturally and providing a long-term solution.

People of all ages, from newborn to elderly, can be treated with osteopathy. There are hundreds of osteopathic techniques and your osteopath will choose the one most appropriate for you and your condition. Most conditions can be treated, even after surgery. If yours is not an osteopathic case, you will be referred to appropriate specialist.

We offer MyoVision spinal scans which we recommend for anyone suffering with spinal problems such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. Full details of this scan or the conditions that we treat can be found by clicking on the relevant links below:

Osteopaths are statutorily regulated health care professionals and form an integral part of primary healthcare. British Osteopaths see over six million patients a year. At Eltham Osteopathy Clinic we have been practising for over 25 years. We are at the heart of the local community providing reliable solutions to our clients back and neck problems.

Osteopathy is not a week-end course: Following an Act of Parliament the General Osteopathic Council regulates and develops the osteopathic profession in the United Kingdom maintaining a statutory register of those entitled to practice. Only those that have completed a 4 to 5 year Honours degree programme at an accredited training course are eligible for registration with the General Osteopathic Council.

The British Medical Associations guidance for General Practitioners states that doctors can safely refer patients to Osteopaths. At Eltham Osteopathy Clinic our main referrals are from our many satisfied patients.
