What is osteopathy?

What

Osteopathic healthcare is a complete and distinctive primary care model for treating and/or preventing illness, centred on palpatory evaluation of the whole person. It is dedicated to optimising health for the individual – and potentially for whole communities.

It is based on the recognition of the components involved in the reciprocity of structure and function. Osteopathy recognises the contribution of genetic and environmental factors and the influence of lifestyle in maintaining health or in the causation of disease.

What do osteopaths do?

What

Osteopaths view health and illness from a musculoskeletal perspective. Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment that lays emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body.

Through a variety of manual techniques, joints are mobilised, muscle tension altered, blood and nerve supply to tissues enhanced, the body’s own healing mechanisms facilitated and its capacity for expressing health improved.

Advice on posture and exercise may be provided to aid recovery, promote health and prevent recurrence of symptoms.

What do osteopaths treat?

What

Osteopaths treat people not diseases. Most people seek osteopathic treatment when they have pain or stiffness. Common problems include:

  • Low back pain or stiffness (which may or may not include sciatica)
  • Neck and upper back pain or stiffness
  • Problems with hips or shoulders, or arms or legs.
  • Workplace strains
  • Sports injuries
  • Backache experienced during pregnancy
  • Symptoms of chronic conditions, e.g., arthritis
  • Stiffness associated with wear and tear
  • Effects of trauma
  • Postural problems & many others

When should I see an osteopath?

When

The sooner you come with a problem, the more likely treatment will work quickly. However even if you have had a problem for years, osteopathy may be able to improve your symptoms.

Very few conditions that osteopathy is contraindicated for. It is particularly useful during pregnancy, as no drugs or medicines are involved.

Whilst osteopathy cannot cure a chronic condition such as arthritis, it can help ameliorate many of its painful features.

Making a complaint

We aim to provide the best care possible at all times. If you feel our standards have slipped or you are unhappy with the treatment you have received, it would be helpful if you could raise the issue with the student / staff member concerned at the time – feedback is a vital tool in the learning process.

If this is not possible, then we would suggest calling or emailing as soon as you are able, and if necessary contacting the Clinic Director to discuss your concerns.

Should you feel the need to escalate the matter, then you should contact our Senior Management Team at our Grange Road premises in Bermondsey.

Serious unresolved issues can be raised with the General Osteopathic Council.
