Osteopathy at Acer House Practice

We offer leading-edge osteopathy treatment for pain and injuries, with multi-disciplinary care and support, at our healthcare clinic and rehabilitation suite.

Our aim is to improve how a patient’s body moves and reduce their pain through a variety of techniques including soft tissue massage, manipulation, and rehabilitation advice.

Osteopaths are trained to medically assess and diagnose conditions, focusing on the spine, muscles, joints, and structures of the body to treat and prevent a wide range of issues.

All osteopaths must have undertaken degree-level specialist qualifications that typically take between four and five years, with further professional training once qualified.

Our internationally renowned osteopathy director, and the founder of Acer House Practice, has assembled a highly skilled osteopathic team who work alongside physiotherapists and our chiropractor.  Each practitioner has a minimum of 10 years’ experience; some also have post-graduate qualifications.  In addition to seeing thousands of patients between us, we have all worked at the highest level with elite athletes.

We treat everyone as an individual, and focus on personalised care and support, throughout your treatment programme including, if required, overseeing your recovery at our rehabilitation suite.

Your First Visit to an Acer House Osteopath

Our osteopaths aim to always put you at your ease. 

We start each new patient consultation by taking a detailed case history, in the comfort and privacy of our treatment rooms.

This initial discussion is a great opportunity for your osteopath to gain an insight into how the condition is affecting you and what your individual goals are for seeking their help.

It also helps us to diagnose your problem, which will then guide the clinical examination that follows.  During this examination, we may ask you to do various orthopaedic tests as well as examining any movements, or activities, that you find are difficult or limited. 

We recommend you come dressed in shorts, T-shirt, or gym kit, so that we can work effectively without making you feel uncomfortable. However, your osteopath may request that you remove items of clothing so that they can assess the areas of the body causing concern. Please let us know if this is going to make you feel uncomfortable.

After the examination your osteopath will explain their detailed findings to you, and then discuss treatment options, before commencing therapy. 

We will talk you through each stage of our treatment and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have.

Osteopathic Treatments :

As well as manual therapy, your treatment may involve:

  • Rehabilitation and exercise prescription
  • Dry needling/acupuncture
  • Medical kinesiology taping
  • Pain education

Any risks associated with having osteopathic treatment are extremely low.  However, you may experience mild discomfort afterwards, which will normally resolve within a day or so.

Your osteopath may suggest further medical tests are done before your first treatment.  Or they may suggest and recommend other members of our team to deliver the treatment plan for your condition.  It might also be necessary for them to refer you for imaging or for a specialist consultant opinion.

Acer House Practice has developed trusted affiliations with external medical professionals, and we will ensure that we refer you to an expert if deemed appropriate.
