Osteopaths

Osteopaths focus on the musculo-skeletal system (the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue). Osteopaths diagnose and treat faults which occur because of injury, stress or perhaps disease, to enable the musculo-skeletal system to work as efficiently as possible, allowing the body to restore itself to normal function. They have a highly trained sense of touch, using manual techniques both to discover underlying causes of pain and to carry out treatment.

A number of specialists have been recommended by Serpie members (shown in bold) and they are listed below. Members with additional recommendations are invited to email them in the same format.

Note that neither Serpentine RC nor its members may be held responsible for any diagnosis or treatment. Before engaging the services of any specialist members should satisfy themselves as to training, experience and insurance. If in any doubt you should consult your GP.

It is strongly advised that you double check the cost with the specialist before commencing treatment.

Bayswater "I would highly recommend Denise, she is a great Osteopath who I have been seeing for over a year. I am training for the London Marathon and she has treated me for an injury from over-training. I now go to her regularly for check ups to decrease risk of injury and reduce tension in my muscles and joints. Denise has given me very useful advice and tips for preventing injury and keeping my joints and muscles strong." Poppy Pippin

Fulham, Putney, Richmond "I'm not a veteran where injury treatment is concerned, but am a cynic, and was more convinced by David's skills and knowledge, plus his ability to pinpoint what was wrong, than I have been by others I've visited and not returned to. He's currently in his 5th year of training (as at February 2008) hence is a little cheaper than other London-based osteos, so good for those who are on a budget. A long-term rugby player, so has had plenty of experience of various injuries, and practice on his team!" Sioned Morgan
