Graeme Western first started The Bexley Osteopathic Clinic in 1987 and by 1998 it had become one of the biggest UK practices. It is probably the oldest established osteopathy clinic in the area with patients travelling a long way to see us for treatment.
Graeme expanded the clinic by forming a team of experienced osteopaths with a basic common approach. They are all patient oriented, have a quality traditional osteopathy approach but also have different areas of interest and specialism. This enables us to provide the most effective treatment.
On a first visit we allow an hour but the time you spend with us may be a bit more or less than this depending on what the osteopath finds - so it is best to allow up to 2 hours if you are buying a parking ticket. The osteopath will take an appropriate case history, examine and then provided they feel it is safe and appropriate they will give treatment. The osteopath should explain what they propose with regard to your problem and treatment but if there is anything more you are not clear about, please ask straight away.
If you require any follow up sessions these are usually approximately 30 minutes.
Please try ot be on time for your appointments as the osteopaths do try and run reasonably to time when possible. If for any reason you are unable to keep an appointment, please give us at least 24 hours notice otherwise a charge may be liable.
In order to make a diagnosis, the osteopath will usually need to see the problem area and with some problems - most usually the lower back, the osteopath might find it helpful to assess the general posture, and this is sometimes done with the patient undressed to their underwear, i.e. underpants for men/bra and pants for women. Underwear is of course kept on at all times. If you are not happy with undressing, do feel free to let the osteopath know what you are comfortable with. Some patients choose to bring in shorts and a vest to change into and a gown is always available. We want our patients to be relaxed but have to rely on yourselves to let us know what would work for you and we will try our best to work with that. If you would like to have someone with you as a chaperone then please feel free to bring someone suitable in with you.
