Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment that is suitable for people of all ages.
Low back pain (Lumbago) is one of the most common conditions that I treat, often very painful and limiting rang of motion.
Neck pain is incredibly common, lots of patients get issues here related to poor posture, such as overuse of smart phones and too much time at a computer.
Shoulder pain is incredibly common, overuse of the arm through all walks of life! Sports people in particular but not limited to that.
Lots of patients get pain in these areas for many reasons.
Shockwave works by applying impulses of energy to targeted areas where there may be abnormal or damaged tissue. Radial waves spread inside the tissue and provoke a natural inflammation response, increasing blood flow to the area.
Consisting of a range of deep tissue massage techniques which stretch, mobilise and manipulate the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the body, it is important to note that despite the name, sports massage isn’t just for athletes.

We’re happy to announce that our office is open once again!
As always, we’re committed to keeping you safe and healthy when you visit us. Patients have the option to wait in their car until their appointment time. We are spacing out appointments to decrease the number of people in the waiting room. We are also using cleaning and social distancing protocols that meet the GOsC and IOs guidelines. This includes disinfecting rooms and objects continually throughout the day and after every patient visit.
It is very important that we continue to support our healthcare community so patients with musculoskeletal conditions do not stretch the capacity of our hospitals and clinics during this time. If you’re in need of osteopathic care, don’t hesitate to make an appointment.
We hope everyone stays safe and healthy.
The Raj Osteo Clinic is also associated with the following insurance companies: BUPA, AXA, CIGNA, Vitality, Simply Health, Aviva, WPA, Medicash.
On your first visit, a full medical case history will be taken. An examination will be carried out and you then maybe be asked to perform a few simple movements so the osteopath can assess the problem. The osteopath will use their highly developed sense of touch called palpation to assess areas of weakness, tenderness, restriction or strain within your body. They will make a diagnosis and discuss it with you and if osteopathic treatment is suitable it will be offered to you. Treatment will be aimed at helping to restore normal joint stability and function.
All osteopaths must have demonstrated to their registering body, The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) – that they are a safe and competent practitioner. Osteopaths have to train for a minimum of four years. They also have to carry out continuing professional development to stay registered. All of our Osteopaths at The Raj Osteo Clinic are registered with GOsC so you are in safe hands.
