Osteopathy in Croydon

Welcome to your local osteomylogy clinic in Selsdon, South Croydon.

Osteopath Ben Perisinnotto can help assess and diagnose a wide range of symptoms, including back pain, neck pain, headaches and other muscle and joint problems. Osteopaths use manipulative therapy of the spine and joints in the human body as part of their treatment.

Osteopaths and chiropractors at Croydon Sports Injury Clinic Ltd co-manage patients with physiotherapy and local GPs for a well-rounded approach to patient care. All osteopaths follow a well renowned professional code and are registered with their affiliated regulatory body to provide first-class patient care.

If you are a candidate for osteopathy, Ben can provide a suitable treatment program to help minimise your symptoms and aches and pains while also improving the range of movement in restricted joints. Ben studied for two years on a physiotherapy degree before choosing to be an osteopath and graduated from the British School of Osteopathy.

Woman getting manual adjustmentOsteomyology combines manual adjusting techniques used in chiropractic, physiotherapy and osteopathy for a well-rounded approach to treating joint restrictions. An assessment with an osteomyologist would include a thorough health history, evaluation and diagnosis of your condition. Spinal joint restrictions that cause pain can be relieved with a properly administered adjustment and osteomyology.

Other therapies used with osteomyology:

  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Interferential therapy

Osteomyology therapy is used as a form of treatment for muscle and joint restrictions and is similar to techniques used for chiropractic, physiotherapy and osteopathy. Osteomyology was started by an osteopath and has many chiropractic and allied health members, including osteopaths and physiotherapists. Osteomyology combines the best combinations of alternative health disciplines to produce a large range of treatment modalities and manipulative therapies.

Manipulation of restricted joints by an osteomyologist can help relieve symptoms for back pain, neck pain and muscle aches. The best thing about osteomyology is that it is multi-dimensional and doesn’t rely on one mode of treatment. In addition to osteomyology manipulative treatments and therapy, we combine physical modalities, including interferential and therapeutic ultrasound.


What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a manual therapy used to help reduce pain by using gentle stretching and mobilising techniques as well as manipulating joints. Osteopaths strive to create a balanced body which can move more freely. That, in turn, can reduce strain. Optimal recovery is enhanced by home exercises, which also help prevent injuries from recurring.

Is osteopathy a recognised profession?

Osteopaths operate under the 1993 Osteopathy Act. Just as physicians, dentists, nurses, midwives and chiropractors have regulatory bodies, the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) keeps a statutory register of osteopaths which safeguards the public.

To register, osteopaths must demonstrate that they have finished a recognised 4- or 5- year course and proven- through rigorous examinations- that they are competent to practice safely. Osteopaths also must comply with the GOsC Code of Conduct, have current approved medical malpractice insurance and prove that they are keeping up-to-date with Continued Professional Development. Anyone visiting an osteopath has the same protection as when they consult a doctor or dentist.

What conditions can osteopathy help with?

People often associate osteopathy with back pain, but neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle pain are all addressed effectively as well as headaches and irritable bowel syndrome. As there are many other concerns that can be assisted with osteopathy, please call our practice on 01332 553332 to discuss your specific problem.

Why should I go to see an osteopath?

Many people elect to see an osteopath to get a diagnosis for their pain with subsequent pain relief and self-help advice. Such advice can allow you to manage your condition at home. Your treatment addresses the muscles and the joints as well as other soft tissue structure. The sooner you come in for help, the less expensive and easier it is to return to optimal health. Additionally, you will get an understanding of factors that may contribute or cause your pain so that you can help prevent recurrence.

What should I wear?

Because a full osteopathic diagnosis relies on examining the entire body, patients should undress to their underwear. Alternatively, if preferred, you can wear a T-shirt and loose-fitting shorts.

How long does each treatment session take?

Please allow 15-20 minutes for each treatment session.
