What to expect

The clinic has three treatment rooms and a waiting area. It is fully disabled accessible.

The first appointment will usually take about an hour, and follow up appointments approximately 45 minutes.

At a first appointment, we gather personal details, a history of the problem and of the person as a whole. For a baby or child this will include details of the pregnancy and birth.

We ask for details of medical history, past accidents, operations, illnesses and dental work so that we have a comprehensive understanding of what has happened.

A typical examination will include a combination of movement, orthopaedic and neurological tests and palpation (gentle touch).

You may be required to undress to your underwear if necessary for examinination or treatment. You can bring suitable clothing to cover yourself with if you wish. We are no longer able to provide privacy gowns or towels or blankets. You are welcome to bring a chaperone with you to be present at your session, but they will need to be screened prior to coming into the clinic (as are patients), and must attend to the COVID risk reduction measures.

Your practitioner will explain your diagnosis in simple terms, and advise you of an appropriate treatment plan. Then with your agreement some treatment is typically done on this first visit.

Treatments can be tiring and you should not expect to participate in vigorous activity for up to 48 hours aftewards. Babies and children may also be unsettled for up to 24 hours.

I saw Yan-Kei Man following a musculoskeletal injury, which she helped me treat. Impressed with Yan-Kei's professionalism and attentiveness, I have since introduced my young kids (3 and 5 years old) to osteopathy. In hindsight, a wise decision given that a scooter accident had left my 5 year old with a slight postural dysfunction. I thoroughly recommend Yan-Kei for her specialisation and impeccable manners.

Charley worked wonders with my back after it had seized up after carrying and giving birth to my daughter. She did a thorough assessment of the (multiple!) problems and worked her magic within a couple of sessions. I wouldn't hesitate to return to Charley for any future problems. Thank you

Following a breech caesarean birth, Max developed a tendency to turn his head to one side, and he developed a visibly flattened side of head. We were fortunate enough to know Steve's expertise in paediatric osteopathy and it was clear to see how passionate and informed he was regarding treatments and possible outcomes. Throughout the non-invasive treatment we felt totally at ease with Steve, as did Max who fell asleep! I would highly recommend Steve. We are extremely grateful for his time, care and attention to detail.

I thought the treatment for pain in my knee was excellent. I felt I was being considered as an individual as Stephen listened to everything I said and gave a treatment appropriate to my needs. His approach was non-invasive. I began to notice an improvement in my knee after a couple of days and the pain has not recurred. To me, it felt as if each treatment enabled my body to correct itself and rebalance.

I saw Simon regularly to help me with symptoms of multiple slipped discs. Cannot recommend enough - as a first time Osteo patient I found Simon to be professional, helpful and friendly. Everything was done at my own pace and fully explained so I knew what it all meant. Many thanks again!

My personal experience at SW19 Osteopaths has been wonderful. My osteopath, Charley, is vey efficient at her work whilst maintaining a professional manner. In addition to this, she is always on time for our appointments which is very helpful when on a tight schedule. I have now completed five sessions of osteopathy with Charley which have greatly benefited the issues I experience with my back. I would highly recommend attending SW19 Osteopaths especially having Charley as your therapist as she is very welcoming and great at answering any queries and/or questions you may have and overall amazing at what she does. Many thanks

Over the last 6 months Lara has effectively used the Emmett Technique to eliminate my persistent lower back pain as well as foot and heel pain. She has also been able to relieve stress and tension from my neck and shoulders. The relief, as a result of her treatments, is immediate and long-lasting. I would highly recommend her treatments.

Just before Christmas, my back ‘went’. By ‘went’ I mean I could barely walk and had constant pain in my lower back and leg. I was off work and spent most of the time lying on the floor. I was treated by Stephen and Simon, both of whom have a professional but very calm manner – ideal for anyone who’s in a lot of pain. They identified muscle and sciatic nerve damage. They obviously knew what they were doing because the pain gradually started to ease, such that by the beginning of March I was back on the treadmill in the gym. Would I use SW19Osteopaths again? Definitely. Only this time I’d go sooner.

Steve always manages to put me back together again - then life is a pleasure!

Finding Simon has had a profound impact on my health and recovery. I have found him to be a wonderful balance of professionalism coupled with a sensitivity and intuition that had supported me when I most needed it.
