Osteopathy

Therapy Banner

Osteopathy was developed in 1874 by Andrew Taylor Still who understood that all body systems were interrelated and dependent upon one another for good health.

 

It is a form of health care that prevents disease and maintains a patient’s health and well-being through techniques of manipulation, aimed at the muscles and joints of the body.

 

Osteopathy focuses on the relationship between the spinal column, the nervous system, circulatory system and a patient’s nutrition. It also combines focused corrective exercises with lifestyle factors to target and treat the cause of symptoms.


Osteopaths will refer patients to other health care providers if the patient’s condition is better treated through other medical approaches.

Zainali Panjwani

 

I am a fully registered osteopath via the General Osteopathic Council. I am also a member of the Osteopathic Sports Care Association (OSCA) and the British Osteopathic Association (BOA). I graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine with a Masters in Osteopathy. I have a keen interest in focused corrective exercises that are integrated with my hands-on approach to provide the body with the best therapeutic environment to healing.

 

I have just completed an internship programme alongside team GB athletes, specifically those in track events. I have had the opportunity to learn and develop my skills under some great therapists and coaches. My passion for performance enhancement has led me to undertake a mentorship at the Gray Institute of Functional Transformation (GIFT). The Gray institute is key to my understanding of integrated therapy.

 

I believe the variety of the general public and professional sport has moulded me with an enjoyable, friendly and motivational attitude that gifts the clinic environment with a sense of peace and calmness.
