Amit Vekaria (M.Ost. Med. DO, ND) originally qualified with a Masters in Osteopathic Medicine and Diploma in Naturopathy from one of the leading institutes over 10 years ago, however felt this wasnt enough and wanted to explore and feed knowledge from other therapists.
This led onto gaining advise and experience from many different therapists not just from the UK but also Asia too and working with them to learn more about the human body. Having worked with Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Yoga Therapists, Sports Therapists, Podiatrists, Massage Therapists & Reiki Therapists, I honoured their knowledge base about how to get a patient healthy and pain free and took on their treatment modalities. Over the past 10 years of experience with them and with my own patients, I have bought together the best treatment modalities found amongst the therapists and try to get any patient coming to our clinic the best treatment and fastest recovery possible.
Regulated by the General Osteopathic Council, Amit applies a range of treatment modalities with the overall aim to increase the patients health and wellbeing via a holistic approach. Spinal manipulation, fascial release, deep tissue massage, medical acupuncture, joint mobilisation and exercise rehabilitation including yoga postures and pilates based core stability techniques are amongst the few techniques used to get the patient into better health.
What to Expect
A thorough case history will be taken about current complaints with relevant information about your past medical procedures, medications you may be taking, your lifestyle / well-being including your occupation and also taking a look at your general health & diet.
A full spinal / postural examination will be taken including a foot and ankle biomechanics assessment for a holistic view where orthotic prescription may be advised, and also may ask to make some simple movements and stretches to observe mobility. If necessary, neurological, orthopedic and other medical tests will be performed.
Health of the joints, tissues and muscles will be examined using a highly developed sense of touch called palpation. Using high-level medical and scientific training, an osteopath can diagnose the problem and treat accordingly to create the perfect conditions to facilitate the healing process.
The Osteopath will give you a clear explanation of what was found and diagnosed.
We will go through the recommended treatment programs specifically designed from your diagnosis and any advice we may be able to give you about your general wellbeing and health.
Always allow 30 minutes for sessions with ourselves, but a treatment will never be time based so we can be done within 15 minutes too, its based on how quickly i can bring you back to alignment holistically and relieve your symptoms and pain. Every patient is different and also depends on the simplicity or complexity of the problem.
Ongoing Treatment and Advice
Osteopathic treatment can use a wide variety of techniques, which may include working on muscles, ligaments and joints to help improve your function and decrease your pain.
You will receive treatment that is appropriate for you as an individual and will help you improve as quickly as possible.
We understand that some people may be nervous about treatment, and the osteopaths ensure a relaxed and supportive environment so that patients can voice any concerns they may have. When ready it may be appropriate to deal with the problem using exercises as part of or all of the treatment (similar to physiotherapy). These may take the form of stretches, body weight or weight lifting exercises with a strong emphasis on core strength, correct posture, flexibility and coordination strongly influenced by pilates based movements. These can be tailored to your requirements depending on your physical abilities and goals, and which you can perform at home or in the gym.
We will equip you with the most fundamental stretches and strengthening work you need for maximum health and to maintain the work we have done! This includes:
DEEP STRETCHING - for an array of symptoms your may suffer such as back or shoulder pain etc. We base our stretched on yoga style stretching.
CORE STRENGTHENING - increasing core stability with pilates based techniques, and a whole load more to make sure we push you to become absolutely fit!
REHABILITATION - making sure you get better as quick as possible from pain and to prevent it from coming back.
Our prices are fixed at...
£55 for the Initial Consultation including treatment
£45 for consecutive treatments
£35 for Children under 12
We do not do bulk discounts, as we never believe anybody should need more than roughly 3-5 sessions on average to rid of pain.
My policy is, if within 3 sessions there is no improvement, i will discharge you as there will be nothing more we can achieve.
