“I would say my approach starts with listening – verbally or non-verbally, the body itself gives a lot of information.
As a part of my observation, I will evaluate your posture, the relative position of the different segments of your spine while resting, standing and in movement and the function of your main area of concern.
While treating, I use and induce motion as a main tool to show the right healing direction to your body.
This could be done through mobilizations, rehabilitation exercises, muscle release and stretches or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitations techniques.
The aim will be to raise your body awareness, giving back to your body its proper postural harmony and function.
Complementary techniques can involve kinesiotaping, myofascial work, trigger point techniques, positional release.
TONY JARRETT, WORLD SILVER MEDALIST IN 100 HURDLES:
It was one of the biggest British athletics meeting of the year, where all the top athletes meet up to compete against each other. I was so really looking forward to this event because my season was going well and it was on my favourite track, Crystal Palace. I remember seeing all of my competitors in the Warm up area, and that's when the nerves kicked in. Every things was going great with my warm up, I was feeling sharp and quick over the hurdles. My coach and I were pleased with how I was looking. We decided to do one more run from blocks over three hurdles before I got called up. I remember coming off the third hurdle thinking to myself these guys are in trouble today, then thinking who the hell is walking across my lane. I had to quickly slow myself down to avoid crashing into the person. That's when I felt a sharp pain shooting down the middle of my lower back. The next thing I know I am on all fours in pain. With all the Commotion around me I tried to stand up, but Couldn't. That's when I knew this race was not going to happen. Then I heard this foreign accent, saying that he can help. He introduced himself as Torben an Osteopath. Looking up I saw this tall slender man and with two clicks I could stand. With that he offered to treat me for a week, so that I could get back to compete as quick as possible. As a man of his word, I remember looking out of my window and seeing him pull up in his green jaguar, pull out his treatment table and make it up to my apartment which was on the top floor, no lifts just stairs 58 steps I can remember. Because he made it up those stairs for a week to help me, I knew then this was the guy I would go to if I had any problems and with that it sparked off a long friendship. You could not ask for a nicer or more loyal friend than Torben.

“The only man who touches my back (when there are problems) is Torben. He is THE BEST. When I was told my back would take 2 weeks to fix – Torben had me on my feet in 2 days.
Osteopathy vs physiotherapy
Central London Osteopathy and Sports Injury Clinic originally started with only osteopaths and sports massage therapists, hence our name, but since many years we had some new complimentary therapies added incl. physiotherapy and acupuncture.
Whether you have back pain, frozen shoulder, post surgical knee pains and you are not sure to see an osteopath or physiotherapist – our advice is either of them, since our physiotherapists are very much hands on and you can expect effective manual treatment.
Although you might have experienced physiotherapists elsewhere only giving rehabilitation exercises & ultra sound and therefore believe that physiotherapy is not addressing the problem as instant as osteopathy, here we deal with clients who put foremost the need to get out of pain and better urgently.
Many of our clients come for a back pain or sports injury and therefore wish to have osteopathy or physiotherapy, and a common question is: “should I see an osteopath or a physiotherapist?”. The answer is quite simple: As the physiotherapists in Central London Osteopathy and Sports Injury Clinic are very much hands on in their approach, and our osteopaths deal a lot with muscle injuries, we recommend either an osteopath or a physiotherapist.
