Your Appointment with Leyton Osteopaths
At your first appointment your osteopath will take a detailed case history. Here you will fully explain your pain and injury, let us know about any health conditions you have and anything else you feel is important.
When your osteopath has completed their examinations they will discuss with you what's happening and give you the opportunity to ask questions. They will explain everything they're doing and answer any further questions you might have.
Does Osteopathy Hurt?
If you are in Leyton or Stratford and haven't tried osteopathy yet because you're afraid it will hurt, we'd strongly recommend putting your worries aside and giving us a visit. A small minority of people feel a little achey after treatment but most people don't even feel that. There are some techniques that are a little more forceful but we are selective in how we use them and would only ever do so with your consent.
What should I bring to my osteopathy appointment?
Just yourself. Having comfortable loose fitting clothing is helpful but not essential.
Back Pain Book
Our principal osteopath, Shane Morris, released his debut book 'The Back Pain Recovery Plan' in September 2019. It has been a bestseller in multiple Amazon categories. All patients receive a complementary copy on request with treatment.

Osteopathy, Physiotherapy or Chiropractic?
Osteopaths, physiotherapists and chiropractors often treat similar types of conditions. So, if you are in Leytonstone with back pain or in Leyton with neck pain you have options when it comes to your treatment; the key is to find the right therapist for you.
Osteopathy take a ‘holistic’ approach, often treating related areas away from the site of injury. We also assess ongoing postural and mechanical problems people have and how these may be feeding into the problem. Factors such as lifestyle, job and exercise are considered and incorporated into the treatment plan.
Osteopathy treatments are typically 30 - 45 minutes and involve soft-tissue massage and joint articulation & manipulation.
Physiotherapists traditionally work with injuries and rehabilitation, mainly dealing with muscles and ligaments. Treatments combine ‘hands-on’ muscle manipulation work with the use of technical equipment (such as ultrasound), plus exercise prescription.
Chiropractors focus their treatment mostly on the spine. A chiropractor uses manipulation, or to use their terminology, 'chiropractic adjustment' as their main treatment modality. An appointment with a chiropractor is typically shorter than an osteopathy or physiotherapy appointment.
Leyton Osteopaths shares its premises with a Physiotherapy practice called 'Physio-Answers' and the two therapies often complement each other well.
