What is Osteopathy?

Osteopath, Islington, London, N1 Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment that lays its main emphasis on the structural and mechanical problems of the body. It is concerned with the body’s framework and how it functions, as this is crucial to the overall function and health of a person. Osteopathy can be immensely helpful to people with problems that originate or are reflected in the musculo-skeletal system of the body.

Osteopathic treatments vary depending on the individual and their presenting complaint. Various treatment methods are integrated to suit the patient's needs.

The initial consultation includes a full case history, a thorough structural assessment and some treatment. Treatment may include deep soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation and manipulation, postural advice and the prescription of exercises to maintain flexibility, range of movement and strength. Follow-up treatments last 30-45 minutes; the number of treatments often depends on how long the problem has been there and how severe it is. Two or three treatments are sufficient for many conditions.

  I wasn't able to run for 7 months because of a hip injury. In spite of months of physio it just wasn't getting better; I was starting to worry it might be serious, and the lack of exercise was getting me down. A friend suggested Karen and after just one session I was able to run again, pain free. I've spent a month building up my distances and am almost back to my previous fitness. After all those months of pain I still can't quite believe I can run again! Karen is friendly, professional and really knows her stuff; as well as fixing my hip, she (unprompted) found and fixed a whole bunch of other minor problems that I'd learned to live with. Amazing!
