Osteopathy promotes the bodies own natural healing processes. It is a system of diagnosis and treatment aimed to provide relief from problems caused by malfunction of the body’s inter-related muscular, skeletal and nervous systems.
Treatment involves gentle hands on techniques, which may include manipulation, for a range of painful and sometimes disabling conditions such as back and neck pain; shoulder and arm pain; hip and leg pain; and headaches.Also pain that remains undiagnosed after medical investigations are normal andmay be found to respond. Problems arising in work, sport or any other aspect of life are equally suited to an osteopathic approach.
The London College of Osteopathic Medicine (LCOM) was founded in 1946 to provide training in osteopathic principles and methods for people who were already qualified medical doctors.
As well as offering training for Doctors the college operates a clinic. The clinic is a charity and was set up in 1927 to treat patients who could not afford private fees. The staff at the clinic are all doctors, some of which are doctors training to be osteopaths, and see patients under the supervision of our tutors, and we ask for a donation to our clinic when you have a treatment.
They are a charity who receive no government or NHS funding, and rely solely on donations.
