Caversham OsteoRoom - Kevin Mullen

Healing is a matter of time; Health is a matter of choice

Osteopathy is a primary health care system of diagnosis, complementary to other medical practices. It is suitable for almost anyone and can contribute to the treatment and management of a wide range of conditions which include back pain, neck pain and all sorts of sports injuries. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together to restore your body to a state of balance.

Our aim is to ensure optimal recovery, reduce the risk of re-injury and restore you to a vital, invigorated and improved state of health for continued participation in your chosen activity.

Postural re-education, and enhancement of motor-skills will sharpen your mind-body coordination, increase your range of motion ultimately producing a stronger more flexible you.

1. Pain Relief

Many people begin Osteopathic healthcare because they seek relief from a specific health concern. Our primary aim is:

  • Identifying the underlying cause of the health problem
  • Proposing an individual care plan to optimise recovery
  • Educating patients so they can participate in their recovery and optimise results
  • Explaining the benefits of further supportive care

2. Corrective Care

Health is a relationship between you and your body. Optimum structure facilitates optimum function. Alternatively, poor structure promotes dysfunction. We encourage all our patients to achieve the highest levels of health and wellbeing they can, educating patients, helping them take ownership of their health and helping them realise the benefit of regular Osteopathic care, sports massage and the importance of exercise to maintain that level of health.

Osteopathy is featured in various clinical recommendations, notably for back pain, including the 2009 NICE guidelines for non-specific low back pain. For more information or to read the guidelines please click here.

What to Expect

Initial appointments last 60 minutes. We will discuss your current complaint, full medical history and current lifestyle to gain an overall understanding of your health. This is followed by a physical assessment and an explanation of any findings. If deemed appropriate, you will receive your first treatment. We encourage you to ask lots of questions and we will always have time to make sure you understand your Osteopathic Care Plan.

All further visits to the Practice will be for an appointment that is approximately 30 minutes in duration.

If Osteopathic treatment sounds promising, we encourage you to have a firsthand experience at Caversham OsteoRoom located in Caversham Health and Fitness. It’s easy to get started.

Regulation

The osteopathy profession is regulated, by law, by the General Osteopathic Council. In the UK, only practitioners who are registered with the General Osteopathic Council are allowed to call themselves osteopaths. To gain registration, osteopaths must have graduated from a recognised college, having completed a 4 year (full time) or 5 year (part-time) honours degree course underpinned by intensive medical training and clinical practice.

To be a rehabilitation therapist you must register with the British Association of Rehabilitation Therapists and Trainers. BASRaT graduates are trained solely in Sports and Exercise Medicine, with an emphasis on the design and implementation of exercise and rehabilitation programmes in both health and disease.
