Osteopathy is used to detect, treat and prevent health problems through gentle stretching, mobilising techniques and the manipulation of joints. Although many perceive Osteopaths as back specialists, the variety of treatments that sit within Osteopathy mean that it can be used to treat many neuromusculoskeletal problems.

Our Osteopaths use a combination of therapeutic techniques and hands-on practices to achieve the best possible pain relief and recovery results.

Osteopathic techniques we use:

Articulation: Joints and structures moved through their natural range of movements

Soft tissue techniques: Muscular and specific massage

Functional: Gentle movement of tissues in a way to relax barriers to normal movement

Exercises and stretching: Manipulation of joints and muscles to increase range of movement

Our Osteopathy Clinics in Waterloo, Southwark (SE1) Canary Wharf, and South Quay (E14) provide specialist treatments for acute and chronic pain, musculoskeletal conditions and postural adaptations from daily life. Our Osteopaths primary goal is to successfully achieve and develop pain management to help you make a rapid recovery.

Osteopathy is based on the holistic principle that the well-being of an individual depends on their body functioning as a unit; where joints, muscles, ligaments and bones function smoothly together. Osteopathy treatments have been proven to be a highly effective way of treating pain in in different areas of the body.

Each of our Osteopaths has a wealth of experience when it comes to pain management and a range of manual therapy techniques, including spinal manipulations, joint articulation, soft tissue massage, sports massage, medical acupuncture and cranial osteopathy. All these osteopathic techniques can be implemented successfully by our osteopaths, aiding your recovery to a pain-free life.

The techniques involved in any individuals Osteopathy treatment vary dependant on the problem. The role of our team is to define any problems and apply the most suitable course of treatment. On top of implementing specialist treatments, our Osteopaths also offer day-to-day advice on how to best prevent any muscular or neuro-related issues occurring.

Becoming an Osteopath takes around 4-5 years of medical training, a similar amount of time to complete a medical degree. Osteopathy training focusses on the understanding of the anatomy and musculoskeletal medicine techniques.

During osteopathy training, they teach 3 types of approach; structural (bones and muscles), visceral (treatment of internal organs) and Cranial (a gentler approach). Throughout their training, osteopathy students will typically spend over 1000 hours learning about and practising these osteopathic techniques.

What our clients say…

3 doctors mis-diagnosed me with RSI (including a private hand ‘expert’)… CBR diagnosed me correctly as having neck issues before I even arrived – just from my description of symptoms… I just hope I remember to go to a Physio first before a doctor when I next get pains in my joints.

My visit to Bruno are really effective on my back right on the same day. He is a great profesional as well as a really warm person to deal. He make you feel calm and relaxed at the consultation. I have recovered strength on my arm thanks to his treatments. I will definitely recommend anyone to go to his clinic.

Peter was very professional! He identified my problem area, gave me excellent advice and exercise to do. I left feeling very positive, will definitely recommend him to people.

C. Cole

I have been treated by Silvia for a shoulder pain. She is an amazing osteopath, very profesional, knowledgeable and a nice person. Silvia is very easy going and explains things extremely clearly.I have been back a few times since and always had fantastic results. I cant recommend CBR Clinic highly enough. Thank you Silvia for making my shoulder much better!

Natalie H

I have been having treatment at CBR Clinics for over 3 months now and I can honestly say that it is one of the best investments in myself I have made. I have had a bad back for a long period which stems from lots of sport and the office job. After seeing Lyndsy Mills my back has recovered and mornings tend to be much easier 🙂 I would recommend to friends, family and work colleagues.

James B.

V. Man

Really good support throughout the 3 weeks of physio. Great selection of take-home exercises and advice that helped me recover and get back to playing sport a good week before I thought I’d be able to. Would definitely recommend to anyone who’s looking for top quality treatment.

M. Batstone

Bruno & his team are professional, efficient, knowledgeable in a number of different disciplines, treatment was effective and Bruno charming. The clinic’s location is very convenient being directly opposite Waterloo station. Disabled parking is availabe in street behind the clinic.

Patricia P.

I’ve been going to CBR for a few years now and have been treated by three of their staff in that time – all great, especially Bruno. I love the fact you can book online and they’re open late most nights and around on thr weekend too. My current treatment is under Nick who specialises in headaches from which I suffer, not just treating the pain but trying to get me to a position where I don’t have to visit too often. How many osteos do that?
