Why Osteopathy

Back pain

Back pain isn’t the only reason why 30,000++ people every day in the UK visit their osteopath… 6 reasons why below.

(i) What’s the difference between an osteopath, a chiropractor and a physiotherapist?
(ii) Do I need to have back pain to book an appointment with my osteopath?
(iii) Do I need a referral to see my osteopath? (The answer is no!)

So let’s start at the very beginning! WHY OSTEOPATHY then WHEN OSTEOPATHY.

6 reasons why osteopathy works:

  1. You’ve had a minor injury but it’s now several days later and it isn’t improving
  2. You have ongoing pain and know you’re popping too many pills in order to cope with it
  3. After pregnancy your body is struggling to return to normal and baby is terribly unsettled too

             5. You’ve got a debilitating condition which can’t be cured but is causing you great discomfort
6. You suffer with regular headaches and migraine which makes your life a misery

How does osteopathy work?

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, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery.
Why osteopathy? Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms.
Your osteopath may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.

So, why osteopathy? Osteopaths are like ‘Pain Detectives’. Highly skilled at working out where the main problem or issue is happening. Osteopaths trace back to the actual cause of the pain and deal with that too.

Back pain

Back pain isn’t normal. Our London osteopath sees low back pain; sciatica; musculoskeletal issues; sports injury.


Spinal manipulation therapy

Spinal Manipulation Therapy

Studies show high prevalence of sciatica. It’s not as uncommon as we think. We offer chronic pain solutions, functional posture assessment and comprehensive care pathways.

Did you know?
There are around 5,000 osteopaths in the UK who undergo an extensive, four-year training and are a closely regulated profession with very high standards.

Our reviews show what optimising health means to medical doctors, the elderly, high performance CEOs.
Low back pain is commonly seen by London osteopath Susannah. But we’re all in need of personalised care and advice. Either an osteopath or chiropractor might employ spinal manipulation or adjustment “back crack”, to free up joints that have become compressed. Spinal manipulation is one physical therapy technique we offer as part of a whole spectrum of treatments that are effective for musculoskeletal conditions.

Osteopaths and chiropractors undergo four years of training, and must complete a programme of further education every year in order to be allowed to stay on the General Osteopathic Council register and the General Chiropractic Council, respectively.
Any chiropractor who is not on the register is practising illegally. Similarly, under the Osteopaths Act 1993, it is an offence for anyone to describe themselves as an osteopath, either expressly or by implication, unless they are registered.
People are advised never to visit a chiropractor or osteopath without first checking their credentials – and with good reason.
Susannah is registered with the General Osteopathic Council.

Spinal Manipulation therapy

Osteopaths generally work across the whole body, regarding it as a single, functional unit. They concentrate more on soft tissues and stretching, using manual therapy. Your osteopath may suggest exercises to promote posture correction.



If we ignore the warning signs of neck pain and back pain we might end up with a problem requiring urgent attention or one that requires us taking rather a lot of time off work. We describe this service, not as a a luxury, but rather an investment. If we don’t change, our posture will and so our optimal health goals diminish.
We take greater risks from this point onwards. It takes longer to fix a problem the longer it has been there.

Ask us what we can do for you. Find out exactly what it is you’re investing in. This way you’ll not only know what you’re getting but you’ll never find this type of knowledge or experience elsewhere. It’s not found in a product and it’s a personalised type of care that takes years of experience to deliver. Knightsbridge osteopathy. If it’s good enough for Gwyneth…

Safe, clinical, practical and effective.
