BODYWORKS What is Osteopathy?
Osteopaths at Bodyworks Clinic are experts in assessing and treating common spinal complaints like low back pain and neck pain.
Osteopathy is a natural manual therapy which emphasises the role of the muscoskeletal system in health. It focuses on the importance of body mechanics, and uses manipulative techniques to detect and correct, faulty structure and function. When the body is balanced and efficient, just like a well tuned engine, it will function with the minimum of wear and tear.

BODYWORKS Your Initial consultation
The key to successful treatment lies in careful and accurate diagnosis along with the skillful application of Osteopathic technique to treat the underlying cause of a condition. When you visit the Osteopath for the first time, a full medical history to enable a full diagnosis will be taken, an examination performed and treatment given. The musculoskeletal assessment will be considered alongside lifestyle factors and suitable treatment plan to be determined. A complete explanation is given, along with advice, including exercise, diet and lifestyle changes to avoid the condition reoccurring. If other treatment is indicated, referral to an appropriate specialist is discussed.

Peter graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2002 and went to New Zealand where he worked as the senior associate Osteopath and implemented some fundamental changes in the way the clinic worked and how patients were cared for.
Peters work has a strong underpinning of Fundamental Osteopathic principals and techniques focusing on assessing and treating incorrect biomechanical structure and improving function as a whole, not just looking at isolated areas of pain. Coupled with modern rehabilitation techniques including western Acupuncture, Kinesio- Taping and Ultrasound, he has a sound background to provide patients with the best possible chance of recovery and re-education.
Combined with his Osteopathic Medicine Degree, Peter has undertaken several courses on functional training, rehabilitation and strength and conditioning coaching, and his additional qualifications as a Core Stability and Pilates instructor give him solid foundations for treating and developing rehabilitation programmes for patients. For more information regarding the conditions and techniques used by Peter and the other Osteopaths, please review the Osteopathic leaflet.
In addition to BODYWORKS, Peter has built a solid reputation in an award-winning practice in Highgate, London, that specialises in Frozen Shoulders. He is the senior associate Osteopath, providing highly skilled treatments to many elite and high profile clients including some A-list celebrities. His professional and caring nature allow Peter to be a very effective and understanding Osteopath and Rehabilitation specialist.
Also as a highly sought after core stability and pilates instructor, Peter builds into his sessions specific rehabilitation exercises that are unique to that individual. One on one pilates instruction can be arranged.
