What is Osteopathy?

According to the Institute of Osteopathy Only 10% of the UK population use Osteopaths.

To help raise awareness I have written a brief description of Osteopathy. 

Osteopathy is a non-invasive physical therapy aimed at improving the structure and function of the musculoskeletal framework, which in turn has a positive impact on your wellbeing and internal health. 

An Osteopath will use stretching, joint and soft tissue manipulation and massage to increase joint mobility. 
This improvement in body structure in turn has a functional improvement of the cardiovascular, lymphatic and neurological systems improving internal health. 

Osteopathy can help with back and joint pain, muscular aches and pains, Osteoarthritis, sports injuries, Rheumatoid arthritis, repetitive strains, poor posture, work related injury...the list goes on. 

During your first visit to an Osteopath you will have a medical case history taken so they are able to get a whole picture of your current and past state of health. 
A physical examination will then be performed using palpation (touch) and assessing joint movements. 
A working diagnosis along with treatment plan will be given before treatment starts. 

Your Osteopath may also give you lifestyle advice and/or stretches for you to do at home. 

Please feel free to drop me a line for some friendly, impartial advice. TEL: 0754 6015296

Good things come to those who wait...

Apologies for the long delay in blogging.

It has been a busy year for me, business has grown! I have moved into personally uncharted territory and now cover South East London, Chislehurst, Mottingham, Locksbottom and other parts of Kent as well as Croydon, North East Surrey and some Sussex areas.

I now drive a signed vehicle, so look out for me in my white Volvo XC60 on the roads of Croydon, Surrey and Kent.

The year ahead is very exciting, as i am hoping to take part in more post-grad courses including dry needling (Western Acupuncture) so watch this space! Charity events are always something I like to get involved in as much as possible, so please feel free to send any information to contact@lauraosteopathy.co.uk

I am so pleased with the feedback from my patients since starting my Mobile Osteopathy Business Venture, they are so grateful to have treatment within their own home and first class service including aftercare advice.

If you are reading this, and wondering if Osteopathy is for you - it most probably is! However, if you do have any questions or queries about your symptoms etc, please do feel free to call me on my mobile - 0754 6015296 any time. If i am in a treatment when you call, please leave me a voicemail message and I will call you back.

Look forward to blogging some interesting articles soon.

Yours sincerely,

Laura James
