Welcome to West Dulwich Osteopaths
We offer effective treatment for a range of problems including common issues such as low back and neck pain. Our skilled, highly qualified practitioners are registered with the General Osteopathic Council and are eager to help and advise you.
We love being part of the local community in Dulwich. Helen, Gina, Sarah and I do our utmost to help our patients feel fighting fit and get out of pain as quickly as possible. We are quite ‘structural’ osteopaths which means we use a combination of massage, stretching, joint articulation and some manipulation to help your body recover from whatever it’s going through. Our treatment is always tailored to you personally. If you’re new to osteopathy and have any questions that you’d like answered before booking an appointment please just give us a call and we’ll be happy to help in whatever way we can.
"The treatment kick started a wonderful improvement. Now in Australia, still improving daily. Another two weeks and will be back at dancing!"
"Gina is always very positive and helpful. She is always ready to suggest alternative exercises if I find difficulty and adjusts treatment to suit how things have gone since my last session. I always find my movement has improved after a session."
"Over two sessions I learnt enough about what I was doing wrong and stretches to correct a lot of the back pain issues I'd been experiencing. Really would recommend!"
"I've never managed to find Osteopaths who understand my back so well. All three ladies are fantastic and can put me back in order with no clicking or pain."
"Really great. Extremely friendly and easy to talk with and she made it clear what she was thinking each step of the way."
"Great value for money, very attentive and professional."
"Excellent, caring treatment!"
It couldn’t be easier to book an appointment with an Osteopath using our online booking facility. We are available throughout the week including some evenings and weekends to suit you.
Our practice is conveniently located on the south circular between West Dulwich and Tulse Hill stations, with free parking on Rosendale Road and several bus stops near by.
Low back pain affects 80% percent of us at some time in our lives. It can affect anyone of any age, often the result of a muscle strain or spinal joint sprain. Occasionally problems with your neck or back give rise to pain, tingling or numbness in your arm or leg. Our Osteopaths will help you understand the cause of your back pain and provide treatment to speed up your recovery. Using massage, articulation of the joints and occasionally manipulation (if appropriate) we can get your spine working as healthily as possible.
Manual therapy is recommended for low back pain by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) – read the guidelines here.
The knees are major weight-bearing joints and are one of the most frequently injured areas of the body. They are particularly susceptible to sporting injury as many skiers and footballers will testify! Pain in these large joints can be debilitating, but most knee problems recover well with the right advice and treatment. Even the aching and stiffness of arthritis can be eased with osteopathic care. Osteoarthritis is also a very common problem in the hip and osteopathic treatment alongside the right sort of exercise can be effective in keeping you active and comfortable.
Shoulder pain can result from a number of problems including rotator cuff overuse or injury, frozen shoulder and degenerative conditions. It can limit how well we can use our arm in everyday activities. It can also make it really difficult to get a comfortable night’s sleep! More so than other areas of the body, problems here can take a long time to settle. Osteopathic treatment can help you during this period. In addition to physically treating the area with massage and stretching we will also recommend exercises to get the most out of your shoulder whilst it recovers.
Are you recovering from an ankle sprain or suffering with achilles pain or plantar fasciitis? As osteopaths we take a holistic view of the way your ankles and feet are working. We look at your lifestyle and the mechanics of your whole body to establish why you are having problems. This helps us make the best decisions about how to help you recover. We can make recommendations on the right footwear or changes to your lifestyle to improve your healing.
