Finding a London Osteopath

Have you been suffering with back, joint or muscle pains for longer than you’d care to mention? Well maybe now is the time to take positive action, and seek help from an osteopath.

Now, finding an osteopath in London can be a bit of a minefield, but Dr Andrew Greenland has a few tips to aid your search:

  • Check their qualifications – are they fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council? Being professionally accredited and qualified is your assurance that osteopaths know what they are doing and are fully regulated and competent in their treatments.
  • Check their experience – how long have they been practising? Have they undergone any specialist training? For instance, Dr Greenland is a medically trained doctor as well as being a medical osteopath – providing an unrivalled level of expertise in the field.
  • Do they provide client testimonials? The best recommendation for an osteopath comes from previously satisfied patients.
  • Is the osteopath personable and friendly? Because at the end of the day you need to feel comfortable and relaxed in the hands of your osteopath. A great way to get a sense of this is to meet and chat with your practitioner. To this end, most osteopaths hold a preliminary consultation before commencing any treatment.
  • Trust your instincts and don’t feel pressured into agreeing to any treatment that you aren’t happy with. A good osteopath will carefully explain your diagnosis, proposed treatment, the likely prognosis, any side effects from treatment, as well as answer any other questions or concerns you might have.

As well as being a senior NHS Hospital Consultant, Dr Andrew Greenland has had extensive training in Complementary therapies, including Osteopathy. Our clinic can therefore assure you of being in the safe hands of a practitioner who is best placed to understand your complaint, and how to restore you to ‘A1’ condition once again.
