Although his main training is as an Osteopath and Naturopath, he has a long history of studying and living the principles of Yoga and Pilates, sometimes incorporating these disciplines when advising patients about follow-up exercises they can do at home.

Vijay’s main interest is in helping each one of his patients to achieve their maximum level of well-being. He enjoys treating people and seeing how, regardless of their age or condition, their quality of life improves.

Being a dad, Vijay has witnessed firsthand the value of Osteopathy, exercise and nutrition for both Baby and Mum: "I have a real interest in working with pregnant women and babies. This started after helping my wife enjoy a comfortable pregnancy by using a combination of osteopathy and the naturopathic doctrine and then witnessing firsthand the very real tangible changes our now three year old daughter benefited from whilst receiving cranial osteopathy."

This is an area that Vijay finds most rewarding since both new mums and babies are naturally very responsive to Osteopathic treatment.

Client Experiences

"Vijay Netto has been treating me for approximately one year, mostly weekly, but sometimes twice weekly.

I have a chronic condition of the upper spine which gives me acute pain in my neck and shoulders, and causes me to have headaches over my right eye which vary from to low to severe pain.

I was told by my consultant that nothing could be done save a spinal operation which I am reluctant to undergo, since there is no guarantee of cure and in some cases, an increase of the pain. At the time I started my treatment I was experiencing acute pain in my neck etc. Recently I have also developed pain in my right upper arm and have been told that it is not related to the spinal problem.

I can report some alleviation of the pain and discomfort in my neck and shoulders while the arm condition is making steady progress, all of which I am sure relates to Mr Netto's care and expertise.

He is extremely considerate and show's great empathy and consideration in the way in which he engages with me. He is professional and satisfactory in every way and I am pleased to strongly recommend him."

"I have a long history of back problems and used to suffer from constant back pain on a daily basis. Osteopathy managed to correct my scoliosis and thanks to Vijay’s treatment I no longer suffer from burning pain in my neck, lower back pain or sciatica.

Vijay also recommended some exercises and I find that the combination of both Osteopathy and these gentle exercises do wonders for my back.

While breastfeeding I was crippled with carpal tunnel syndrome to the point that I could not even open a baby bottle. My GP said nothing could be done and to just bear with it since it would go by itself. It took Vijay a couple of sessions to ease the pain. I could feel the improvement in mobility from the first session!

My back has been in such poor condition due to years of bad postural habits, misdiagnosed conditions and ill advice so much so that I used to suffer from extreme back pain on a daily basis. I remember even as a teenager having to lie down because the pain in my neck had become too much and I could not function again unless I lay down to rest.

Nowadays, thanks to Vijay, I have no pain but only occasional discomfort. I would not hesitate to recommend Vijay as he is a highly professional and competent Osteopath.
