How do I find the best osteopath in London?
You might have a friend, who has good experiences with their osteopath, and if you are looking for an osteopath in London this is often the most reliable way.
Social media is also a good indicator for how to find your best osteopath in London.
We have a couple of hundred 5 star reviews on Google, and these are from genuinly happy clients who are happy to give our osteopaths their recommendation – we do not give any incentives for a nice review, but we strive very hard to maintain a high level of osteopathiuc care.
Visiting an osteopath, you will be treated from 3 basic principles:
1) Your body is a whole and must be regarded and treated as such.
2) Your body can under the right conditions heal itself.
3) Your body’s structure and function are mutually interdependent.
Physio Treatment by Ange
During my business trip to London, I twisted my back and was in pain. I found Central London Osteopathy and got an appointment just a couple of hours later. I was referred to Ange who treated me very professionally in such a way that may back was much better after the session. He has a very good understanding of the body and knew exactly what to do. I definitively can recommend Ange and the osteopathy
Outstanding clinic. I have been seeing Torben and Stephanie for 18+ months. Their combined expertise helped me overcome a long-term back/hip issue, and uncovered the source of the problem almost immediately after more than 10 years of seeking treatment elsewhere. On-going treatment with Stephanie has been an absolute game-changer, and has allowed me to get back into weight training pain free. Can not recommend highly enough!

Anna Friel Recommends
"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.
Back and Neck Injury
Just came back from a treatment at Central London Osteopathy this morning... yet AGAIN they've taken me from zero mobility to completely normal... I can't recommend this clinic more....C.L.O. is a life saver!
The best clinic in London- I wouldn’t put my trust anywhere else. Whatever back problem you have - it’s always fixed and whenever it’s an emergency they do their best to fit you in ASAP. Excellent service from start to finish.
