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

I took my baby to see Katherine to help with sleeping issues. She immediately noted areas of tightness causing him pain and after one session he was sleeping through the night. After four sessions he was a different baby, sleeping and eating batter leading to a much happier baby. I wish I had taken him earlier!

Andrew Cotton is such professional, experienced, gifted, caring and talented Osteopath. I am so lucky to have found him to resolve a neck issue which was giving me the most horrendous pain in my shoulder and migraines. I was in agony when I first arrived and a few sessions later, I am now pain free, have a much greater range of movement and able to turn my neck again! Such a brilliant result! Thank you Andrew for your talent.

We’ve had a really great experience with the treatment Melinda has given to our little boy with torticollis. She’s a very kind and professional individual and obviously good at what she does.

I first discovered Fulham Osteopaths as a sleep-deprived first time Mum - I did not know what osteopathy was before then! I am so grateful to have Fulham Osteopaths as part of my community - Melinda is so lovely (as are her staff!) and the practice exemplifies holistic care that is critically missing in many parts of our health system. Now my whole family receives care from the practice and every time, no matter the niggle (or emergency!) we receive excellent care throughout. Many thanks!!
