What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy can help treat a wide variety of conditions. It is a manual therapy that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of musculoskeletal and other related disorders.  Osteopathy is a holistic approach that takes into account the body’s structural and functional integrity. Osteopaths not only treat the symptoms but identify the underlying causes of the presenting complain, to restore the body’s balance and enhance its self-healing mechanisms by stimulating the cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.

There are a variety of techniques to suit the specific need of each individual patient. Safe techniques such as traditional osteopathic manipulation and mobilization of joints, soft tissue work, myofascial release, and gentle functional approaches such as cranial osteopathy and visceral techniques are used to maximize the optimal health and well-being.  Advice and exercises are also provided to promote health and prevent injury to re-occur.

I visited physio4life for a sports massage and highly recommend them. I saw Izabela for a shoulder pain I had for the longest time, and she was able to help me after my very first treatment ! The reception team were great and really friendly, my whole experience was definitely 5 stars. Thanks again !

One of the best clinics I've been to. I've had issues with hypermobile EDS for years and managed to mess up my back this time around. I was booked in immediately with the osteopath Roxane who, aside from quickly sorting my back pain, was incredibly friendly and provided me with a lot of information as to how best to manage my hypermobility. I would 100% recommend this clinic and would certainly return again.

I was referred here by my private health care provider for a lower back sports injury... my physio, Stuart knew exactly what he was talking about and reassured me we can get me back to playing netball and create a plan to prevent this injury from reoccurring. Only had my initial assessment and already have exercises to work on and advise on what I can and can not do whilst in recovery. Managed to get an appointment same day and my follow up just a few days later. Bonus they are open late and at weekends!!!! I would recommend this to all my friends!

Victoria is very professional, hard working, friendly and helpful. After just one session and following the recommended exercises the pain in my knee significantly subsided. I would like to thank Victoria again for being so brilliant and helpful.

Convenient evening appointments, and intelligent professional and friendly treatment from Victoria that sorted out my headaches with a couple of appointments. 2 other family members have used this practice and also been extremely impressed.

Best Physio Clinic & Sports Massages in London. I have been visiting Physio4Life for around 6 years and have had several physio treatments for back or leg issues which have always been really helpful. I also have regular sports massages just for my own wellbeing because they really help take away the tension built up by sitting in an office all day and I find them so relaxing. I have tried other clinics in London but quite frankly I have never found a clinic that is as professional and convenient to visit. All the therapists are highly trained and skilled and I think this clinic is another great reason to live in Putney!

I was having headaches every day, was in a really bad place. Saw Hugo for a few sessions and the relief was enormous. The headaches subsided, I felt great. And what's best, I've been to physio's before where you feel as if there's no end to the tunnel, you'll always be going back and paying more money to get sessions every week for the rest of your life. But that wasn't how things work here. From the beginning there was a clear path to recovery, there was always an end goal - To relieve the headaches and give me the tools I needed to ensure they don't come back. Once that goal was achieved, Hugo said there was no need to come back unless something changed or I needed help. I really value that approach. Plus, Hugo is a super nice guy, always helps.

I was experiencing neck pain after a netball injury, which was preventing me from training/ playing. After being in pain for over a week, I went to see Hugo who was absolutely brilliant. He listened and assessed my injury and with his techniques I was over 50% recovered after just one session. Thanks Hugo for fixing my neck injury - I am so glad to be back playing netball!! 🙂

This place has completely saved me! A classical musician, I was forced to pull out of a concert midway through due to unexplained loss of feeling in my arm. I managed to get through to the wonderful receptionist at 9 30pm on a Friday night, who set me up with an appointment at 1pm the next day. I am now having regular appointments with Keval, who not only diagnosed me at the first appointment, has me back playing and performing again but also calmed me down with his professionalism and reassurance. Would recommend without reserve!

I first visited Physio4Life in August after hurting my lower back. I rang in the morning and managed to get an appointment the same day. I saw Hugo who has helped so much! When I first went it hurt to walk and I could not bend my back at all without pain. I have seen Hugo 8 times now and my lower pain is so much better - I no longer have any pain. I have also just started Pilates with Stasia to strengthen my back which I have found really good. I would definitely recommend Physio4Life is anyone.

Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Did my back in due to bad posture at work, culminating in losing full mobility. Phoned on a Saturday and got an appointment early Monday morning. Was seen by Hugo and his level of service was outstanding. Very professional whilst being very friendly. Over 4 sessions gave me effective treatment with follow up exercises that have got me back to fighting form!

December 2016 I had a terrible fall and severely hurt my ankle, after xrays, boot and crutches for an extended period of time I did make a good recovery, however I re injured it shortly after, not by doing much I hasten too add. I found myself in incredible pain and back on crutches and completely out of action! James helped me with my ankle by doing tapping , physio and prescribing me with some exercises with a resistance bands. I also had a bunch of others to do. Very rapidly I was pain free then after a few more sessions the tapping was removed and my ankle was mostly functional, just rather stiff. Now I am a good ankle shape, I dont even think about it, the stiffness went and I am completely pain free!! I still do my exercises as I accept it is an injury I will have to manage. James is an extremely knowledgeable and gifted physio who specialises in knees, toes and ankles!!! Thank-you so much James! I am booking an overland trip to Africa now.

A friend recommended me Physio4Life for sever back pain that I started having in the end of July. I was treated by Victoria who diagnosed my condition as cauda equina syndrome and urged me to immediately go to A&E. Thanks to her timely diagnosis and the amazing treatment at the hospital I am still able to walk, as this condition can quickly leave someone paralyzed if it's not surgically treated. Victoria has been treating me for my post-surgery recovery even since and has helped me to steadily get stronger over time. Both her and Hugo who also treated me for a short period are extremely knowledgeable and caring, and will patiently explain all the rehabilitation exercises. Would definitely recommend going there!

I would highly recommend Physio 4 Life. I needed physio for tendonitis in my foot and Hugo has been great. His impressive knowledge, treatment and range of home strengthening exercises have helped my foot enormously and gave me back the confidence I had lost when I was injured. Thank you!

Hugo really helped me with my back. He fixed my initial problem and identified other areas for improvement and gave me the exercises that would help me. My back is now better (and still improving) than it was before my injury. I won't hesitate to go back with any other problem. Thanks.

I cannot speak highly enough of James. He's working so hard on fixing my running injury and getting me back to where I want to be. He's such a lovely, funny person who absolutely puts you at ease. The receptionists are also great, they remember who you are when you arrive and work efficiently. I would absolutely recommend anyone dealing with sports injury or looking for a recovery training plan go here.

I cannot recommend Physio4Life and Hugo highly enough! After several months of treatment following knee surgery, Hugo's attitude and confidence in my recovery made any slow progress that much easier to deal with. It was always a pleasure to be greeted by such a friendly reception team as well and, to be honest, I'm a little sad I'm back to full health and don't get to catch up with the great team there anymore!!

Twice weekly seshs here since March on an arduous recovery from challenging shoulder surgery. James is a fab and understanding physio, reception team (who always seem very happy & engaged) are superbly organised & highly efficient, quite the best I've experienced in the world of surgeries. Totally recommended.

James rehabilitated my ankle following a complex arthroscopy. His knowledge is really impressive, always knowing or quickly discovering the cause of pains and always ready with solutions. He was recommended by the surgeon and it is easy to see why. Now back long-distance running.

I cannot recommend this place enough! I had to be referred twice (back pain and then a very painful knee injury). Hugo took such good care of me and is such a cracking character that he made everything feel so easy and I was always confident in his approach and his treatment and recovery plan. Above all it was very effective! I have honestly never felt better in my life! Also the staff at reception is the nicest - they even remember people's names! Oh and there's free tea and coffee in reception 🙂 so now I'm pain free and it's all thanks to Hugo! Thank you!

Had a great experience with the Physio 4 Life team over the past year. Everyone was always friendly and helpful. A special thank you to Hugo, he did everything he could possibly do to resolve my plantar fasciitis problem. I'd highly recommend them!

I've had a great experience with Physio4Life. Their physiotherapist Hugo Chinchilla has solved my lower back pain within 5 sessions. An excellent and very friendly professional I'd definitely recommend to anyone.

James has been instrumental in making sure I return to play as soon as possible, being a professional netball athlete my feet are hugely important. James was able to diagnose various issues with my feet, and clearly explain how these could be modified with the orthotics he would mould for me. He went above and beyond to provide the best service possible and I am eternally grateful.

I use physio4life on two counts - James is a brilliant physiotherapist, knowledgeable, skilful (and humorous); and Dan runs an older persons' circuit training exercise class - great fun, and as accessible or challenging as you want to make it

Common presentations osteopathy can help with:

  • Back pain
  • Headaches (migraines), neck pain, jaw pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Arm and elbow pain
  • Hip, knee, foot pain
  • Abdominal, digestive problem
  • Emotional tensions

  • Pregnancy and post-natal pain

What is Cranial Osteopathy?

Cranial osteopathy encourages the release of stresses and tensions throughout the body. It is a gentle, non-invasive technique that can be used on any part of the body (not just the head) using very skilled, light touch to feel and modulate the subtle movements that accompany phenomena like breathing and postural adjustment.

Cranial treatments often bring a feeling of relaxation and warmth within the body and mind, at the same time restoring the body’s function.

Everyone can benefit from Cranial Osteopathy: pregnant women, postnatal mothers and newborn babies; children or adults with digestive problems, headaches, emotional tensions, and many more. Speak to our cranial osteopaths in Putney for more information.

What can our Putney Osteopaths Treat?

As mentoned above, whether you have suffered a sports injury (muscle strain, ligament sprain or fracture), have chronic pain (headaches, migraines, sore back), or pregnancy-related ailments, osteopathy can help you.

The osteopath will start by asking questions about your medical history and specific questions regarding the main reason for the consultation.

Your first Osteopathy Examination

Then, a thorough examination of the patients’ posture will be carried out using palpation, active and passive mobility tests. To do so properly, the osteopath may ask you to remove some of your clothing. If you are uncomfortable about this, feel free to tell your practitioner. You can also choose to bring a pair of sports shorts and a singlet if you prefer.

Discussing Your Treatment Plan with Your Osteopath

The osteopath will then take the time to discuss with you the diagnosis and will suggest a treatment plan and the likely number of session needed for a noticeable improvement in how you feel. It is important that you understand this plan as very often you will be asked to do some specific exercises at home and because you may be referred to one of our physiotherapists for advanced rehabilitation.

Osteopath Appointments Putney

During treatment, osteopaths use a wide range of manual techniques such as: joint mobilisations, massage, manipulations and stretching exercises. For the treatment of newborn conditions for example, osteopaths can use myofascial or craniosacral techniques to help with latching difficulties, plagiocephaly (flattening of the head) and difficulty to pass wind or constipation. Osteopaths intuitively help restore balance in the organs of your body and are also able to provide advice on posture and work ergonomy in order to promote health and prevent symptoms from recurring.

The Benefits of Osteopathy Treatment at Physio 4 Life in Putney

The benefits and any potential risks associated with the treatment will be mentioned to you. Your practitioner will always ask your permission to treat you and will explain what he is doing as the treatment progresses.

Most people visit an osteopath as a private patient by self-referring themselves and pay for their treatment. If you have a private health insurance, you may be able to claim for the treatment costs. As it will depend on your personal level of cover, make sure to ask your insurance provider if you are eligible to claim for osteopathy treatment and if you need to be referred by a GP or not.

At Physio4Life we believe that when a patient seeks help from a manual therapist, they should always benefit from the best hands-on techniques, refined palpation skills in addition to rehabilitation exercises. The combination of all these aspects of treatment leads to a better long term recovery and can prevent injuries from recurring.
