Osteopath London David Canevaro

End your chronic joint and muscle pain

Osteopathy is an established holistic system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of body aches, pains and malfunctions. It considers all aspects of a patient’s life, examines many of the body’s systems to assess a patient’s general health and identify any damage, strains or tensions causing the symptoms.

Osteopathy places great emphasis on the body’s structural integrity, recognising that much of the pain and disability that we suffer can be attributed to abnormalities in the body’s function and not necessarily damage caused by injury or disease.

David Canevaro will be able to detect and recommend treatment for strains or damage to the body’s joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves and blood vessels. When treating your structures and tissues, the aim of his treatment is to use the body’s own self-repairing mechanisms to relieve pain and improve body functions.

Osteopathy uses many of the diagnostic procedures of conventional medical assessment and diagnosis. Its strength and efficacy is in the unique method of assessing a patient’s posture, mechanical and functional movements to determine the appropriate personalised treatment to suit individual needs. Osteopathic treatment can also have a marked effect on the health and efficiency of the body’s circulatory, respiratory, neurological and digestive systems.

After your osteopathy treatment, once your body is in perfect balance, stress-free and working effectively, it will function with a minimum of wear and tear, thus eliminating pain, and reducing physical exhaustion and disability. Osteopathy not only improves your daily work activities buts helps you in recreational and sporting pursuits.
