About The Clinic
Nescot's new clinic opened in September 2016, offering excellent facilities to students on our four-year degree programme. The clinic is open to the public every day, with evening clinics two times a week as well as specialist Mother and Baby Clinics. We also run a one-day a week clinic at Kingston University (click here for details).
Treatments are carried out by senior students, supervised by experienced osteopaths. Patients can book appointments directly, and do not need a referral from a GP.
Our charges are approximately half those of a commercial clinic, and because of our size our waiting lists are much shorter.
Osteopathy is a way of diagnosing, treating and preventing health problems through looking at the way the body’s muscles, bones and tissues move. Many people use osteopathy as a way of treating aches and pains without using drugs or surgery. Osteopaths work with their hands, using a wide range of treatment techniques, including massage, stretching and manipulation, as well as gentle release techniques that are suitable for children and elderly people.
Not just for backs! Osteopathy can be used to treat a huge range of musculoskeletal conditions, including:

What Can I Expect On My First Visit?
At your first visit to the teaching clinic, you’ll be asked detailed questions about your specific aches and pains, as well as your general health. You’ll be asked to remove some of your clothing and to perform some simple movements. This enables the person treating you to look at how your joints are moving in order to help make a diagnosis. The student osteopath will examine the affected area to identify weakness or strain, and if necessary they may recommend further tests such as an X-ray or MRI scan. You are welcome to request to be treated by a practitioner of the same sex. Please wear loose fitting clothing if possible.
Your practitioner will then form a detailed treatment plan and discuss this with you.
