Clapham Osteopathy and Functional Movement

NICE Guidelines 2016

Nice to see that the new NICE guidelines still recommend manual therapy for ‪#‎lowbackpain‬ alongside exercise and encouraging the patient to keep moving. At Backs Etc we always emphasise exercise and rehabilitation. The aim of the hands-on therapy is to allow you to move more freely and so be able to exercise/ improve movement patterns and daily habits to get you out of pain faster. It is impossible to make changes in 1 hour per week treatment, if they are not supported by changes made by the patient is the remaining 6 days and 23 hours.

First anniversary update!

Backs Etc. is celebrating its first birthday!  The business is growing well and I am looking forward to what the next year will bring.  I am passionate about osteopathy and improving patient outcomes.  I am therefore committed to improving my skills and knowledge base via post-graduate training.  From September I will be spending one weekend a month for the following year pursuing the Foundation Course in Classical Osteopathy to broaden and deepen my osteopathic knowledge.

I have also attended level 1 and 2 NeuroKinetic Therapy training courses in the past six months. This is a very powerful tool when added into osteopathy, helping me to get to the root cause of many musculo-skeletal problems rather than just treating pain. I have recently added a page to my website describing NKT in more detail, which you may find interesting.  I would also be grateful if you would share it with your friends and family who are considering making an appointment:
