Osteopathy

Osteopath in London

London’s Fleet Street Clinic is centrally located, and offers easy access to an excellent Osteopath service. We are often able to provide appointments on a same day or next day basis.

Our in-house Osteopath, Andrew Doody was trained at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine and has been working at Fleet Street Clinic for over 10 years.

Our aim is to ensure our patients understand they do not have to suffer. Our Osteopath will work with patients to understand the underlying causes of pain and discomfort.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of musculo-skeletal problems. A detailed knowledge of the structure and function of the body enables the osteopath to diagnose and identify any underlying causes of injury or mechanical stress.

What conditions do osteopaths treat?

Osteopathy focuses mainly on the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal and other related disorders. Commonly treated conditions include:

  • Back & Neck Pain ( non traumatic mechanical)
  • Sciatica & Lumbago
  • Neck Related Headaches / Migraine Prevention
  • Shoulder, Hip, Knee, Ankle, Elbow and Wrist Pain
  • Minor Sports Injuries
  • Muscular Strains
  • Postural-related Problems
  • Workstation-related Problems
  • Pregnancy-related Musculo-skeletal Problems
  • Stress-related Musculo-skeletal Problems
  • Arthritic Pain
  • Restricted Mobility
  • Occupational Ill Health
  • Cramp & Muscle Spasms
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neuralgia
  • Rheumatic Pain

What does a consultation with an osteopath involve?

An accurate diagnosis is the prerequisite of successful treatment, and is reached by taking a detailed medical history and completing a physical examination of the area – using medical, orthopaedic and neurological tests where appropriate. Diagnosis and proposed treatment will then be discussed and carried out straight away if you are in agreement.

Treatment aims to gently restore function using a wide variety of techniques, possibly including massage, mobilisation and manipulation. Exercise, ergonomic and lifestyle advice may be given.

How long does an osteopathic session last?

The initial appointment typically takes 45 minutes with follow-up sessions lasting about 30 minutes.

What training do osteopaths have?

Osteopaths complete a four or five year degree course combining academic and clinical work. They are required to update their training throughout their working lives.

Can I claim on my medical insurance?

Most insurers cover osteopathic treatment but it is best to check first. Andrew is fully covered by all insurers including BUPA and AXA PPP.
