Online Appointments

Our approach has always been to help you to understand why you have your symptoms
and help you to control and manage them so you can get back to the things you love as quickly as possible.

That’s still the same, but we have adapted to look after you online.

For small group (maximum 6) online Pilates classes, please select “Group Sessions”

We may be closed for face to face appointments, but we are still here for you.

The research shows that online appointments can be as effective as face to face, book an appointment and let us help you from the safety of your own home.

Although you may think of us as hands-on therapists, we do a lot more than that – often you don’t notice, because of lot of the “coaching” happens when we are examining and treating you.

Appointments can be booked online but if you are not sure whether an online appointment is suitable for you, please email us or leave a message with your phone number on 01202 888439 and we will call you to discuss.

Once you have booked an appointment, you will receive a confirmation email containing a link to access a secure video room. Just click on the link at your appointment time and your osteopath will be waiting for you.

Most of the appointment will be very similar to a face to face appointment; we will listen to your story and ask you questions to help understand your presenting symptoms and establish your goals.

Rather than performing tests on you, we will guide you through a physical examination. Combined with our questioning, this will enable us determine the root cause of your symptoms and to check that there is nothing serious going on that requires other care.

We will then explain our thinking to you and discuss specific self care and exercises and plan out your treatment together.

We can deal with most things during an online appointment but please get in touch if you are unsure or, if you would prefer, we can offer a telephone consultation.

Can we help you? – there’s only one way to find out!

returning to, or increasing, exercise safely

running injuries (most are caused by training error and respond well to exercises)
