Best Osteopath in Central London

Best Osteopath in Central London. If you have suffered a sports injury and are seeking help to reduce your pain then you want to see the best practitioner. But how can you make sure your Osteopath is good if not the best? Things to consider for your Osteopath. In this blog we will discuss how you can find someone who will best suit you and get you the best results. Firstly what are the criteria to find the best in London? Questions could be:

Best Osteopath in Central London

Which has the most experience? Which one of the London clinics has the best reputation? Who is the most approachable? Will I feel comfortable within the environment? Which one is the most knowledgeable in London? Tricky! These questions are quite broad and how will you find out all this information. Osteopathy is used to treat your whole body and also want to address lifestyle factors which can be contributing to your symptoms. We also treat a wide range of conditions, ages and use a wide range of techniques. A top tip is to narrow down your search depending on what you are looking for.

Everyone has different specialties, are you looking for a central London clinic who can treat your sports injuries? Seeing one with the most amount of general experience doesn’t necessarily mean they treat a large number of sports injury people. We can help greatly during pregnancy and to treat your baby? Seeing one who has completed post graduate pediatrics training and specialises treating babies would be your best bet.

How do I Narrow my Search?

Try to narrow your search down and be more specific to your problem you are presenting with. For example, if I had low back pain a better search would be the most experienced for osteopath for lower back pain. However something to bear in mind is the most experienced one in Central London always the best?

Yes someone who has qualified 40 years ago has seen a lot of clients win the clinic over the years. But have they regularly updated their knowledge with the latest research or have they been treating in the same manner for 40 years. Is the practitioner with the best knowledge also good at making you feel comfortable? Are they good communicators and really understand you and your presenting problem? Is this the best choice to find a good osteopath in London.

Who is the Best Osteopath in Central London for you?

Personally I would like to see an Osteopath with a good amount of experience, who is a good communicator, knowledgeable and will gain good results to reduce my symptoms. Finding someone that understands you and your problem, can talk on your level and makes you feel relaxed could be the right practitioner for you.

Best Osteopath in Central London Sports Injury

Of course if you need an Osteopath for running injuries then look for someone in London that has that kind of clinic and experience. Is it sports massage that you need or a London alternative treatment clinic?

Good Osteopath

If you believe in the plan for your sports injury, trust and feel relaxed then you are going to gain the best results from a appointment. For me, the best practitioner in Central London is the one who is right for you. We are all different and Osteopathy is a unique as it is treating you. If you leave the session feeling better than before then that is a great start. At Wellthy Clinic we provide structural and cranial osteopath london which is a more gentle treatment form. A couple of things you could try to start your search.

Best Osteopath in Central London

Are they registered?

In order to call yourself qualified you will have needed to completed a minimum of 4 years of masters level studying. It is a requirement to be registered with the governing body (GOsC) and to be insured. Details of which are displayed on the GOsC website. 


Ask your friends or family if they have had any recommendations. They will want to help you and no one gives recommendations unless they had a positive experience. Ask them what was so good about their experience and why they liked the proprietor.


Check out previous client’s reviews on google, facebook, yell and yelp. Also reviews on the pages of the Osteopath’s website. You will see clients who have experienced similar problems to yourself and how the clinic have helped. This gives a valuable insight as to whether this practitioner can help with your issue.

Language and Facilities

If you are not completely fluent in English is there a practitioner who speaks your language? Otherwise there is always the possibility of bringing a friend who can translate of your behalf. If you use a wheelchair and need access, you will need a facility that has wheelchair access. If you are unsure then feel free to contact the clinic. At Wellthy Clinic Eleonora speaks English and Italian.

What to Expect in your Osteopath Consultation

Before your first appointment there should be information available either on their website or with your booking confirmation about what to expect in your first consultation. You will feel reassured that the information you are asked to provide will be kept confidential. Receive advice on how to manage your presenting problem and how best to prevent recurrence of your symptoms. Information will be provided about the risks and side effects of session. Appropriate access for people with disabilities. They will explain that if symptoms do not improve after a few sessions then an appropriate referral to another healthcare practitioner will be made.

Osteopathy Report

A large scale report researching patients expectations of private osteopathic care was conducted (Leach et al 2011). The findings suggested people can feel confident in expecting the osteopathy profession to provide the following aspects of care consistently and to a high degree. You will be treated with respect and feel able to ask questions and for them to be answered to your satisfaction. Moreover they will listen to you and be sympathetic towards your problem.

A case history will be taken and you will receive an explanation of the cause of the problem that you are able to understand. The work will be good value for money and recommend physiotherapy  will be given to your problem area.

Get in Contact with Them 

Have a look on the Osteopath’s social media where you will see their profile. Generally they will talk about their story, where they trained, how they like to treat, their interests and if they provide any other alternative therapies. (Pilates, Nutrition, massage etc). Do they accept insurance for the therapies you require.

Do they seem approachable? Could you see them treating you? If you still have any further questions then feel free to give them a call. Do they sound friendly on the phone? Are they trying to sell you something or being helpful and answer your questions thoroughly? How do they make you feel? If you feel confident following your search then why not try a session. Some practitioners appreciate Osteopathy isn’t particularly well known and it is natural for people to have questions. At Wellthy Clinic we are happy to speak with you to help explain the process. There is a large choice in London so its important to get correct diagnoses.
