DID YOU KNOW? There’s good evidence that osteopathy is effective in treating persistent low back pain.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends it as a treatment for this condition.

To an osteopath, for our body to work well, its structure must also work well. So osteopaths work to restore our body to a state of balance. We do this, where possible, without the use of drugs or surgery.
Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage. The techniques increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension. Also these enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues. This helps our body’s own healing mechanisms.
They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.

Osteopathy specialises in the (i) diagnosis, (ii) management, (iii) treatment and (iv) prevention of musculoskeletal and other related disorders.

Osteopathy in London

Your osteopath will give you a clear explanation of what they find (their diagnosis) and discuss a treatment plan that is suitable for you. They will explain the benefits and any risks of the treatment they are recommending. It is important to understand and agree what the treatment can achieve, and the likely number of sessions needed for a noticeable improvement in how you feel.

Treatment is hands-on and involves skilled manipulation of the spine and joints, and massage of soft tissues. Your osteopath will explain what they are doing and will always ask your permission to treat you (known as consent). Ask questions at any time if you are unsure what you have been told or if you have any concerns.

Self-help measures and advice on exercise may be offered to assist your recovery, prevent recurrence or worsening of symptoms.

Is Osteopathy For Me?

Osteopathy is a primary care profession. Your osteopath focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders. Also your osteopath focuses on the effects of these conditions on your general health.

Functional Osteopathy

We use many diagnostic procedures applied in conventional medical assessment. Your osteopath seeks to restore the optimal functioning of the body, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery.

The human body has an amazing capacity to repair and recover. Osteopathy helps remove any barriers to that process.

In short, an Osteopaths aim is to help restore optimal function, but more importantly, prevent pain returning and injuries from reoccurring.

FAQS @ Susannah Makram Clinics – Can I claim osteopathy on my private medical insurance?

Many private health insurance policies provide cover for osteopathic treatment.  It may be possible to claim for a course of treatment. It is advisable to check in advance with your insurance company before seeking Osteopathic treatment, in order to confirm the available level of cover and whether you will need to have a referral from your GP or a specialist.

Functional health — How?

What about Functional Nutrition

Can the right functional testing can help us make small, simple changes to our diet? Changes that have a greater impact on our quality of life.

In modern times, we want our nutritional facts and we want them NOW! But are they up to date? Where are the clinical trials?
We say we need to change. What we need is to stop saying it and take action before it’s too late.

Our choices of nutrition are becoming recognised – finally! – as massive drivers to our health. This is good news because in modern times we’ve never been sicker. Our food has a lot to answer for.


Safe, clinical, practical and effective.
