New Patients

We can offer you a fast and efficient emergency treatment at our London osteopathy clinics. We have a competent and highly experienced team of osteopaths and have provided treatments for over 25 years. Our examination has been developed to offer fast, accurate diagnosis and treatment for the relief of back pain, neck pain, headaches and many other conditions.

As with most medical conditions, early diagnosis is vital in achieving a speedy cost effective recovery as delays in diagnosis of many conditions can impede recovery by weeks. Many of the conditions that we treat can be found on our Conditions page.

Upon Arrival

As soon as you arrive, you will be welcomed at reception by one of our friendly Clinic Assistants and a nice cup of tea as we all know things are better after a good cup of tea. Patients frequently comment on how their first visit was meet with a friendly face, a warm smile and an understanding of how much pain they are in.

Once you are as comfortable as possible, one of our Clinic assistants will sit with you and note down some basic personal details for inclusion in your new file.

Consultation

Putting the pieces together to establish what’s gone wrong.

This is where you talk and we listen. Over the years many patients have told me that doctors do not listen to you and can often feel nobody believes you and the pain is all in your head. You will have a private consultation where the osteopath will spend time talking to you about your life and medical history.

Everything you have experienced in your life up until now has resulted in what we will find; all those falls you had as a kid, the bump in the car, your poor posture at your desk or in the car, your stressful job, the quality of the food you choose, being a shift worker and not getting regular sleep, even feeling lonely and isolated. Literally everything has created what we see today!

Our job is to piece together the jigsaw puzzle of your life to find out why you have the pain. All your details will be handled with the strictest confidentiality.

Physical exam

A thorough orthopaedic, neurological, postural analysis and osteopathic examination is performed. Based on the findings, the osteopath will decide whether any additional investigations are necessary before treatment can begin, such as X-rays, MRI, CT scans and urine or blood tests. In some cases, it may also be necessary to contact your GP.

Technical exam

Lack of symptoms or feeling good is not an effective barometer to measure your health, that is why we measure how your body functions and adapts to stress by using state of the art advanced spinal evaluation technology, called myovison. We scan your spine which delivers a computerised image of the stress and tension to your spine and nervous system. This technology gives us (and you) an objective assessment.  This will also be utilised during your re-exams to demonstrate your progress

We then analyse all the data and create a plan of treatment that is specific and individual to you. This will be ready for your next visit.

Report of findings

We LOVE this appointment because this is when we get to tell you how we can help! It’s when you get the time to discuss exactly what’s going on in your case with your Osteopath. Your osteopath will provide you with an individualised, confidential written report and you can discuss what course of action suits you best.  We will also discuss the 4 questions every patient needs answered:

  • What is the cause of your symptoms
  • What can be done about it
  • How long it will take
  • How much will it cost

Just so you know, if we think Osteopathy is not the care you need, we’ll point you in the right direction. In cases where we want further tests, we’ll refer you back to your GP.

Treatment

If you are happy with your treatment plan then its time for your treatment. This will happen at the end of the report of findings and it will start the process of correcting the underlying cause of your problem.

Osteopaths treat the cause of your problem that painkillers hide. After reviewing all the information the osteopath will use only the techniques appropriate to your condition. Manual techniques where the osteopath uses their hands, such as Specific spinal adjustments, soft tissue techniques, massage, cranial and other gentle techniques can decrease pain, improve joint mobility, decrease muscle spasm, reduce nerve interference and improve circulation increasing your health.

Osteopathy has been proven to be remarkably safe – much safer than taking pain killers! After treatment, many patients report increased general wellbeing -not just improvement with the problem that made them turn to osteopathy in the first place

Advice

Nothing changes unless your habits change, therefore in order to help you recover, you may need to change aspects of your lifestyle.

We can assist with this by giving specific exercises to do at home, nutritional advice, stress management, postural advice, sleep habits, ergonomics, and the best use of ice and heat.

Most medical insurance will cover osteopathy but we do ask that you initially settle your account with the Practice at the time of your appointment and then claim from your insurers.

Your Osteopathic Journey

Many people initially come to see us to relieve a specific pain. Once the pain has gone most patients return for what we call “Lifestyle osteopathy”, which includes osteopathy along with their own ongoing healthy lifestyle of eating well, regular exercise and trying to keep good physical and mental health.

Going to the gym regularly to work out can help you stay fit. Likewise, seeing the dentist for check-ups can help you maintain optimal oral health. Regular Osteopathic care may help you enjoy better spinal and overall health. Everything of value requires maintenance. When people get older, their number one complaint is their bad back. That’s why regular osteopathic care is so valuable. It can help you at every stage of life and negate the effects of our stressful lifestyle.

Whether you want to see us for occasional pain relief or regular maintenance care, we are always happy to assist you

Money back Satisfaction Guarantee

We can’t guarantee your results, however we can guarantee your satisfaction. We are so confident that you will be happy with your results that if on a rare occasion you are not, then talk to us and we will simply refund the money you have paid us. Terms and conditions apply.

Whatever your needs, we will listen, provide choices and support you in achieving your personal health goals.
