Osteopathy Coulsdon treatment involves helping the body’s own healing abilities. This also allows the structure and functions of the body to work at their optimum. Furthermore, improving the skeleton’s quality and range of movement includes muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This, in turn, affects the functions of the blood and nerve supplies to body tissues. This, therefore, helps to reduce pain and balance the overall health and well-being of the body.

Osteopathy can treat and manage many symptoms, including:
- Any form of spinal pain originating from disc bulges/muscle spasm to joint sprains
- Arthritic related aches and pains
- Strain injuries from repetitive work
- Sciatica/nerve entrapment symptoms
- Muscular problems
- Referred pain
- Biomechanical imbalances
- Minor sports injuries – tennis/golf elbow, knees, shoulders, ankles
- Pregnancy and post-partum posture-related aches and pains – rib pain, pelvic and back pains
- Aches and pains caused by work, driving, gardening or leisure sports.
For adults, osteopathic treatment involves hands-on techniques. Additionally, discussing with patients’ potential factors that contribute to their pain and discomfort. Whether from their job, a sport, posture, during/after pregnancy, or lifestyle.
We also provide tailored postural advice, including stretching or strengthening exercises. This also helps patients with ongoing management of their symptoms and prevention of injury recurrence. With this holistic treatment approach, Charlotte encourages patients to play a part in their own recovery. The aim is to ensure a long-term solution rather than just a quick fix.
Moreover, for babies and children, treatment is gentle using cranial osteopathy techniques. Highly developed palpation skills persuasively release tension and strain patterns in the body. The treatment can also help with feeding problems, reflux, colic, constipation, wind, postural problems, and head flattening.
Finally, Charlotte is a fully qualified and registered osteopath. She specialises in structural and cranial osteopathy techniques for patients of all ages – babies through to the elderly.
