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 goes above and beyond and I feel very lucky to have met her. She has been treating my son for the last 10 months. After each session, we notice big improvements as Melinda helps him being more comfortable within his body in order to achieve his next developmental milestone. Melinda leverages her knowledge and experience to adapt to her patients needs, treating a baby isn’t easy but she always finds a way. Plus she always makes sure I understand how she is working with my son and share with me some things that we can do at home in between the sessions. Her kindness is just the cherry on the cake :)

I strongly recommend Fulham Osteopaths. Senior Osteopath Verena treated both myself and my newborn shortly after birth. We were both treated very gently and attentively and we both left feeling a lot better- my hip pain disappeared and babies tensions from birth were released. Thank you Verena! 🙏

We’ve been working with Verena to help with some long term covid issues and she has been wonderful. Very caring and thorough and puts us at complete ease with her thoughtful demeanour. She really listens and always responds with new suggestions to help improve the situation.

We chose to go to an osteopath after our little one suffered from reflux as well being an unstable lie during pregnancy, so he was very tense with an uncomfortable posture. After the first session with Katie along with myself and my husband doing the exercises given by Katie in between, we noticed a huge difference, we now have a very happy baby. We could not recommend Katie enough. She put us at ease and explained everything. We will definitely go back to Katie should we have any issues in the future.

Verena is amazing. The hip pain and pelvic floor dysfunction I had been working on with a physiotherapist for over a year was relieved almost immediately! I have hEDS and particularly recommend her for those with hypermobility also.

Verena was absolutely lovely and very gentle with my baby. He was always unusually calm and relaxed by the end of a session. Thoroughly recommend.

I went to visit Elyse, practically unable to walk. The pain in my knee was unbearable and couldn’t take weight and it felt like I’d done some irreparable damage. Within an hour - she had fixed me and given me some brilliant but short and easy exercises. I can’t recommend her enough

I visited Fulham Osteopaths for a treatment as entering my 3rd trimester of pregnancy has caused me some signifiant back stiffness. I was lucky enough to be treated by Melinda, the owner. I love the passion and nurturing approach she has and the focus on a holistic and natural side of treatment. It felt like she directed my body to find the balance and solve the issues. Instant improvement! I can highly recommend the place. The passion for improving people's lives and high quality customer service is visible from the moment you enter the place. Highly, highly recommended!
