The Balham Osteopathic Practice has been providing relief from back pain, sports injuries, headaches, and many other conditions for the people of Balham for several years. Based in the heart of Balham we provide treatment for adults, children, and babies at times that are convenient for you in a calm, peaceful, and reassuring environment.
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a form of natural medicine that uses a number of manual techniques to identify stress, strain, and dysfunction within the human body. Osteopathy aims to re-establish the inherent healing power that the body possesses through gentle manipulation and movement of the joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Through improvement in the physical structure of the body, improvements in function are also made, affecting all the systems of the body from nerve conduction, respiration, digestion, and general levels of vitality.
Is Osteopathy right for me?
At the Balham Osteopathic Practice, we treat people not conditions, we recognise that the circumstances of each patient are unique to them and only treat when we have made a thorough assessment and diagnosis of their problem. At the practice patients as old as 90 and as young as 4 days have benefited from osteopathic treatment. Osteopathic treatment is recognized as being an effective treatment for many musculo–skeletal conditions ranging from back pain, neck and shoulder injuries, headache, and repetitive strain type injuries. If you would like more information please contact us by phone or email.
Treatment of children and babies
Cranial osteopathy is effective in the treatment of many conditions but has become increasingly associated with the treatment of infants and children whose delicate systems respond rapidly to this very gentle non-invasive therapy.
If you feel your baby would benefit from cranial osteopathic treatment please contact the practice to speak to an osteopath.
