COVID-19 Update 17th March 2020
The clinic remains open as usual, however, patient health and safety is our main priority, so we have taken the following steps to ensure all visitors are as safe as possible:
The building entrance door nearest the clinic (4th door along, signposted City Osteopaths) will remain open all day so that patients do not need to enter the main reception or the lounge and can therefore avoid social contact.
All patients will be required to use alcohol gel on entering the clinic room.
All surfaces in the clinic will be regularly sterilised.
All clinicians will continue to maintain high standards of hygiene and follow Public Health England’s guidelines to minimise their own risk of exposure to the virus, thereby reducing the chance of passing it on.
Please do not attend the clinic if you have a fever or new persistent cough.
Please do not attend the clinic if you have returned from abroad in the last 14 days, regardless of whether you have symptoms or not.
We will start by getting to the bottom of what is causing your pain by conducting a thorough examination. After discussing this with you, treatment commonly involves, soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation or manipulation, and exercise. We may also use acupuncture, electrotherapy or taping.
Through careful biomechanical assessment, we can identify the cause of your injury, or factors that may predispose you to future problems. In our well equipped clinic we can then rehabilitate you back to full fitness, whether you are a recreational jogger, or elite professional athlete. We also have sports massage appointments to keep you feeling great and Pilates to optimise your performance and prevent injury recurrence.

Whether it is back pain or pelvic girdle pain during or after pregnancy, feeding issues with your newborn or dyspraxia in your growing child, we can help through a combination of expert knowledge, gentle treatment and exercise rehabilitation. In addition to osteopathy, our one-to-one clinical Pilates sessions may also help with your recovery.
