What is Osteopathy? 

Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by moving, stretching and massaging a person's muscles and joints. Osteopathy is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.

What we can do for you? 

Our aim is to help as many people as possible. We work tirelessly to ensure each and every one of our clients are equipped to manage their bodies sustainably.

At our first consultation we will assess and diagnose in order to begin the rehabilitation process. We then will manipulate the body to relax any areas of tension or pain. We leave you with a structured idea of how long it will take to heal and how you as the client can manage this away from the centre.

Wear and Tear

Most people over the age of 40 have some osteoarthritis (wear and tear) in one or more of their joints. This can cause pain and discomfort especially at night and first thing in the morning and osteopathic treatment can help alleviate these symptoms.

Osteopathy can improve your physical activity while helping you to prevent further injuries. 

Osteopathy for Prevention and Good Health 

Don't wait until your aches become a pain. Preventative health care is best. You will need fewer treatments overall if you get it sorted straight away AND you can aim to feel your best; optimum well-being, not merely 'not in pain'. 'A stitch in time saves nine' as the old proverb wisely states.

Brixton Therapy Centre, local Osteopaths near Camberwell, Herne Hill and Stockwell, assess and treat people of any age from the elderly to the newborn and from pregnant women to sports people. Although osteopaths treat many conditions, most people think of us as ‘back specialists’ and back pain is what osteopaths treat a lot of the time. We also, however, treat a range other conditions:

Osteopaths can identify any weaknesses in your body that have occurred from old injuries so that you can understand your body better and get back to the activities you love.

If you need advice about whether your problem is suitable for osteopathy then just give us a ring.

What to expect during your visit.

During your first consultation at Brixton Therapy Centre, local Osteopaths near Clapham, Streatham Hill and Kennington, your osteopath will examine you, reach a diagnosis and, with your consent, start your treatment. You will also be prescribed some gentle exercises to start your rehabilitation. After your first session your osteopath should be able to give you a rough idea of how many sessions you will need to get better.

Our aim is to get you pain free as soon as possible.

Osteopaths are experienced professionals.

An osteopath must study for five years for an undergraduate degree. This is similar to an undergraduate medical degree, with emphasis on anatomy and musculoskeletal medicine, and includes more than 1,000 hours of training in osteopathic techniques. By law, osteopaths must register with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). It is an offence for anyone to call themselves an osteopath if they are not registered. The British Medical Association’s guidance for general practitioners states that doctors can safely refer patients to osteopaths.

Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial Osteopathy is practised by fully registered osteopaths with a specialist in Cranial Osteopathy, having undertaken further training.

 

It's a subtle and gentle version of osteopathy and is practised across the whole body, including the abdomen, head and sacrum.

Cranial osteopaths will run their hands, moving steadily and slowly, across the body, tuning into subtle restrictions and tensions in the tissues.

Sports Osteopathy

Our specialist Sports Osteopaths can diagnose and effectively treat a wide variety of sporting injuries and other musculoskeletal conditions. Sports Osteopaths have extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics, which allows them to accurately identify the cause of the problem and plan appropriate management with rehab.

Assessing how you move is important if you are to get the most out of your chosen sport. Addressing the load on the tissues through changing the body’s biomechanics and retraining the strength and flexibility of the muscles can be key to reducing pain levels and improving performance.

Pregnancy places many unique demands on a woman’s body; nine months of pregnancy and labour have a big impact on your spine and pelvic floor.

 

Hormones will soften the ligaments, which are necessary for the body to accommodate the baby as it grows, adding stress on certain joints which often leads to aches and sprains.

 

Pregnancy Osteopathy can treat and reduce the demands on your body.

Mother and Baby Osteopathy

The birth process can place many strains on both the baby and mother; the baby’s position in the womb, the ease of delivery and how the baby is delivered can be among other factors can all contribute to strains and stresses.

 

Breast feeding, carrying your baby and use of equipment such as buggies can also place extra strain on your body.
