Osteopathy – a new service at Epsom Footcare

Epsom Footcare takes an holistic approach to the treatment of foot ankle and lower limb problems.

Lower limb problems don’t always begin in the lower limb. Situations can arise in the upper body that can influence the function of the lower limb, foot and ankle.

When this is the case, having a multidisciplinary approach to musculoskeletal care improves the chances of successful healing and restoration of function.

To this end we have decided to expand the services offered by the practice to include Osteopathy.

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.

To an osteopath, for your body to work well, its structure must also work well. Osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance using touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.

Rachel Whitby graduated from the University of Surrey with a Masters degree in Osteopathic Medicine.  She also has a degree in medical neuroscience and her postgraduate research into movement disorders at Kings College London gives her a thorough understanding of some of the more complex disorders that can affect the human body.
