About Osteopathy West London
Osteopathy West London are dedicated to patient care and specialise in the treatment of back and neck pain. We adopt a holistic approach to health care and believe in treating the whole person not just the symptoms.We provide expert treatments, both structural and cranial, for adults, children and new born babies.
We use a direct hands-on approach to osteopathy and use a wide range of osteopathic techniques including the use of spinal manipulation, remedial massage and medical acupuncture. Though some gentle spinal manipulations (joint ‘cracking’, ‘clicking’ or ‘popping’) may be used, we believe that there is so much more to treatment and adopt a far more therapeutic approach involving joint mobilisation and muscle therapy.
As well as effectively alleviating the symptoms of pain and discomfort, a strong emphasis is put on overall health and well-being. Following treatment, we offer prescriptive exercise plans, dietary suggestions and self-care advice.
Our aim is to help each and every patient back to their best health both inside and out! Osteopathy West London is part of Body and Soul Zone, a multidisciplinary health care centre in Ealing Broadway, West London. Hannah Whitcombe is both the founder and owner of Osteopathy West London.
