Osteopathy - Shepherds Bush & Hammersmith Osteopaths

  • Every year over 6,000,000 patients in Great Britain consult an osteopath
  • Osteopathy is a safe and natural system of manual medicine that diagnoses, treats and helps to prevent problems arising from and within the musculo-skeletal system (muscles, bones, joints, organs, connective tissue)

  • Each of our London Osteopaths is registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and fully insured

What an Osteopath do?

  • Osteopaths diagnose and treat complaints occurring due to injury, stress, disease and accidents.
  • Osteopaths aim to enable the musculoskeletal system to work as efficiently as possible by disencumbering it from unnecessary stressors.
  • Osteopaths harness the body’s innate healing processes in the search for health and normal function.

  • Osteopaths refer patients on to a registered medical practitioner when appropriate.
