You will enjoy:
Your first appointment begins with a discussion about your present symptoms, medical case history and treatment goals. Movement and postural examinations will then be carried out to look at how your spine and joints move together. Then the Osteopath will carefully feel the tone of your muscles and examine the joints of your body.
This examination helps to diagnose and so develop a plan of how to treat you most effectively. You can be assured that time will be taken to explain what is going on and the aims of treatment will be discussed with you. Your treatment plan is unique to you and is geared to what will be of most help. Safe gentle manual techniques are used, which most people find relaxing.
Following the treatment, you will be shown simple exercises or movements for you to do at home, to maximise the benefits of treatment. On-going treatment plans or referrals will be discussed with you. Typical treatment plans are 4 to 6 appointments although this varies with diagnosis and how you respond to treatment.
Mark Woolman - Osteopath
I am a registered Osteopath with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and a member of the British Osteopathic Association. I trained and graduated at the British School of Osteopathy.
I am interested in posture and movement, and so helping people to move and stand more comfortably and naturally. I believe posture can have a big impact on how we feel. I specialise in more gentle treatments as I find it most helpful for relaxation and pain relief and also for showing patients how to move more easily.
My South London practice is at Streatham Hill, which includes work with a Carer Association.
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a safe and gentle form of manual therapy. It is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by moving and stretching a person’s muscles and joints.
Osteopaths work holistically. This means that as well as diagnosing specific structures that are under stress or strain, they look to see why this is happening within the patient’s body and related life style factors which can contribute, such as sitting posture or lifting techniques. This approach helps to return patients to optimum function and reduce stress.
Osteopaths do not use drugs or surgery.
