Osteopathy is an established, recognised system of diagnosis and treatment, which lays its main emphasis on improving the structural and functinal integrety of the body. Whilst back pain is the most common problem seen, osteopathy can help with a wide variety of problems including hip, knee and foot pain, neck problems, frozen shoulder, sciatica, sports injuries, headaches and whiplash. Osteopathy in Wanstead east London, is a good “starter” treatment. It is beneficial to have a few sessions, then try a massage therapy to maintain your improved health.
All our Osteopaths are  AXA registered.

Osteopathy keeps your joints supple and your muscles stretched, flexible and strong. When you carry a lot of tension and stiffness in your body, unless you have a fresh injury, you often don’t feel it until someone takes it away – like taking off a heavy rucksack after a long time, you feel a little achy whilst your muscles and joints recover, but then feel much better.

When you see our Osteopath east London they will take a detailed medical history, and chat to you to build up a ‘story’ of your symptoms, they will check your blood pressure and reflexes, carry out a few simple nerve and muscle tests to enable them to come to a diagnosis of why you are in pain/discomfort.  If our Osteopath are thinking they can help, your treatment can begin in the first session -  with massage, stretching muscles and joints, sometimes acupuncture or cranial osteopathy. Quite often the Osteopath will use a technique that uses a little short fast thrust across your back that causes a little ‘pop or click’ sound in your back. This doesn’t hurt and it can’t or doesn’t cause any damage when performed by experienced hands, but it does make you feel much easier!

Our Osteopath can also give you some day to day advice you should follow and a few stretches and exercises to do at home to speed up recovery time. Your diagnosis, plan of treatment and expected recovery time will be discussed and explained, your questions are welcomed (however small or silly you feel they may be!)

Some of the reasons to see an Osteopath: Low back ache when you are out and about, walking. Muscle and joint pain during your working day, at your desk, or from driving

Sciatica/ Leg pain that wont go away Regular headaches, migraines, neck pain, ‘concrete’ shoulders

RSI. Sports injuries. Arthritis

Pregnancy pains/ SPD, Newborn check ups (including colic problems).

Why is Osteopathy a good idea?

Your body tends to experiences aches and pains for 2 reasons

  1. Either your muscles and joints are too tight and too stiff
  2. OR, your muscles and joints are too mobile, too flexible and unstable.

An osteopath’s job is to work out what’s happening to you, and to put it right with techniques that suit you best.

It is easy to forget to look after ourselves. We let our muscles become stiff and tight over time.  We think the twinge turning over in bed, tying our laces, or lifting that garden sack is normal.  Or that the ‘concrete shoulders’, funny sharp leg pain that’s been nagging for months and daily headaches are just part of life.  it doesn’t have to be like that.

If you don’t put oil in a car, it will break down. If you leave it standing out in the rain for 20 years it will become rusty, creaky and slow.  It is also important to remember that your body changes. Your muscle tension levels change. You change in response to the weather, stresses and strains in life, events and activities.  Osteopathy keeps your joints oiled and your muscles stretched, flexible and strong, reducing pain…. and it is an excellent form of treatment during stressful times.

Osteopathy is suitable for everyone, from newborn babies to the very elderly.
