What Is Osteopathy

We know there are so many choices for your healthcare these days, it can be confusing. We founded Fulham Osteopaths over thirty years ago to explain Osteopathy and bring it’s fantastic treatment to people in Fulham.

Osteopathy is one of the best and most effective and treatments for so many of our health problems. Osteopathy is a complete system of diagnosis, examination and treatment, regulated by the Government. Osteopaths train to a similar standard as Doctors, but focus on the structure of the body and it’s holistic relationship to all the other systems like digestion and circulation.

How Does Osteopathy Work

Osteopathy looks at the relationship between how well your body could be working to how well it is actually working at the moment.

Get the body working properly, and any number of things heal up. Osteopathy is really just common sense, and is very holistic.

An Osteopath works with their hands on the human body to relieve strains, rebalancing interconnections between different areas of the body, so improving circulation and how well that part of the body works. This leads naturally to an increase in vitality, allowing healing and relief to follow. It is also extraordinarily safe, with a risk of serious complications from treatment so low as to be virtually unmeasurable.

Effective At Resolving Aches, Pains & Injuries

Osteopathy is very effective at resolving aches, pains and injuries, because it looks at the causes of a problem. It is an Osteopath's aim to stop a problem or injury from recurring by taking away those reasons that allowed it to occur in the first place. Because it is fundamentally holistic, we do not artificially divide you up into systems. We think the whole thing is important.

  • It works according to a number of well understood and common sense “Osteopathic Principles”, combining science and art;
    a rigorous scientific knowledge base with great depth of logic and analysis
  • the softer arts of understanding such as physical sensitivity, sympathy and empathy.

Osteopathy does not try artificially to look at part of your problem by dividing the body into systems treated by a specialist. Instead, Osteopaths are generalists, seeing a person as a whole, mind, body, spirit and environment. This wide view enables us to treat most conditions, as everything is connected.

What are Osteopathic Principles

We work according to tried and tested ”Osteopathic Principles”, a common sense and practical approach to helping your body and mind find ease and health;

  • Structure governs function; your body has to work well
  • The body produces it’s own medicines; we all have natural powers of healing
  • The body is a unit, mind body and spirit; we need to be well in all parts of our body and life

Osteopath Reviews 

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

Melinda is the best you can get!! I went to see her after my scan showed my baby in breach position. Melinda put me at ease and the adjustments she made were totally pain free and relieved tightness in my back. Within 36 hours my baby turned… totally amazing. This may not work for everyone, but it’s worth a go … especially over the likely stress and pain that comes with the ECV hospital treatments.

I cannot speak highly enough of the service here. I came on the advice of a freind with a suspected frozen shoulder, which at the time was astonishingly painful. It turns out that it was likely a partially dislocated shoulder, and thanks to the brilliant analysis and help of Omer it is now on the mend. The help and advice was spot on, and I'll make a habit of coming with any muscular problem in the future.Put simply, if you have a problem this is the place to go. It is absolutely amazing.

My 8 month old daughter had treatment with Giulia at Fulham osteopath as she wasn’t meeting some milestones and we were a little concerned. Giulia was very welcoming and reassuring right from the beginning.When my daughter had her first treatment with Giulia, the next day she was able to meet that milestone as if nothing had happened, we were amazed at how quickly the treatment worked and we were really pleased to see that.Giulia recommended to have two more treatments for her and with those treatments things just got better for her in regards to meeting her milestones.We highly recommend Giulia for anyone who might be facing the same concerns for their little ones.

I have been treated by Verena Leo at Fulham Osteopaths in the last few months for a hip imbalance which causes complications such as trochanteric tendonitis and bursitis. But of course she looks at the skeleton as a whole. She has a very informed and gentle approach, which I like. She never rushes things, explains well and gives exercises to help further at home. I am pleased and have brought my teenage daughter, who has posture issues, to be treated by her too. Definitely recommended.

I have been intermittently using Fulham Osteopaths over the years and always had a really positive experience. Recently, Omer has been incredibly helpful, I went in due to an aching shoulder that had been bothering me for a couple of months, and not only has he really helped with that, but my recent sessions have made my whole back feel looser. I can feel the difference day to day and appreciate it enormously.
