What is Osteopathy?

Peter Chierakul | Fulham Osteopath

Osteopaths are trained as Primary Healthcare Practitioners and are an integral part of rehabilitative care. As the first complimentary medicine to obtain government recognition, osteopaths are governed and regulated by the General Osteopathic Council.

Osteopathy is the diagnosis and treatment of the body which encompasses all muscles, ligaments and joints. Our extensive training in both anatomy and physiology allows the whole body to be addressed thus promoting optimal function throughout. As osteopaths are trained to treat holistically, the site of pain is considered in the context of the individual.

Our osteopath will take a detailed case history, including past history as well as the reason you are seeking help now. We will put your present problem into the context of your health and life to this point. Having taken a history, the osteopath will advise you of your therapy plan before treatment. Examinations are based on orthopaedic and neurological tests as well as tests of movement and strength which give clues as to the bones, joints, muscles and ligaments involved. Treatment may involve gentle articulation movements, soft tissue manipulation and/or gentle cranial osteopathic techniques. Patients may then be given further advice on posture, prevention and exercises. All techniques are chosen for each patient’s individual needs, allowing for the most effective treatment for that individual.

Testimonials

“I was in a terrible motorcycle accident with a broken leg and damaged back. Six months after the operation I was still in a lot of pain and on a lot of painkillers. I had been discharged and even with MRI scans the hospital basically said I was recovered. I saw Peter and after the first treatment I felt immediate relief. He was able to give me a diagnosis and treatment plan and it was only after a few treatments that I felt 100% better – completely pain free!”

Katee, Social Media Manager and Amateur Footballer

 

“I hurt my back on a long photoshoot and a day of carrying heavy equipment. After only two treatments, Peter had me walking pain-free again. He manages to explain his treatment very clearly without medical jargon and is always very professional and caring. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others seeking osteopathic treatment.”

Lydia, Photographer

“I was treated by Peter following a weight-lifting injury and found him to be a massive help in getting back to training. I would thoroughly recommend his services.”

Ian, Personal Trainer and ex-Commonwealth Boxer

 

“I don’t let anyone else touch my back except for Peter! When I went to see a physio, they said I’d be out for 2 weeks – Peter had me back on my feet in 2 days! He is a miracle worker!”

Sarah, Banker
