We may be the first stop on your journey to help you understand and review your health concerns.
Many of our new Patients have seen their Doctor, and perhaps several other practitioners before consulting us.
They may have had short lasting results or little improvement to date and are now seeking help elsewhere.
We don’t perform miracles, but take a osteopathic medical approach to assessment and diagnosis.
We have a practice charter and follow the code of practice of the General Osteopathic Council.
At the end of your episode of care we ask to complete a patient satisfaction survey online so we can see how the whole BODY BACK-UP care experience went for you! We use this information to shape were we can to improve our service!
Osteopathy is a safe and effective form of Primary Health Care.
We are an AHP Allied Health Profession recognised by NHS England
Following our Practice charter our Osteopaths will explain:
- Why you are in pain
- How long your recovery should take
- How many treatments you should need over what period
- When it is ideal to return to full physical activity
- When it is most appropriate to be referred to another professional
We seek to restore optimal functioning of your body where possible reducing reliance on painkillers, or earlier than necessary surgery.Our patient-centered approach to health and well-being means we consider your symptoms in the context of your full medical history, as well as your lifestyle and personal circumstances.
The Body Back-Up team of Osteopaths are Registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
We uphold the highest standards of patient care, best practice and conduct.
