Charlotte Hunt Osteopaths clinic started in 2009. Charlotte retrained as an osteopath as a mature student. This followed working for over 14 years in a corporate career. Her calling to change career and retrain came after experiencing the holistic approach to osteopathy treatments. These made her aware of the mental and physical strains of work that affected her health. These caused severe neck and back pain. In addition to the physical treatment of osteopathy, she received advice enabling her to manage her own health. Ultimately this led to her to retraining as an osteopath. This is the philosophy that Charlotte has adopted in her approach to treating patients. She absolutely loves helping people of all ages from babies to the elderly. Being able to relieve long or short-term pains is gratifying as she knows how they feel.
Let our Osteopaths fix your pain problems
Osteopathy is a physical therapy that involves helping the whole body’s healing abilities. The aim is for the structure and functions of the body to be working at their optimum. The improvement in the quality and range of movement of the skeleton, muscles, ligaments, and tendons makes a large difference. In turn, it affects the functions of the blood and nerve supplies to body tissues. This also helps to reduce pain and balance the overall health and well-being of the body.
Cranial and Structural Techniques
In addition, Charlotte provides cranial and structural techniques. These will be tailored to a patients’ individual needs to ensure the treatment is safe and comfortable. She treats all areas of the body and not just backs. So for head and neck pain down to the ankle and everything related in between. Osteopathy treatment involves assessing and examining not just the site of pain. Reviews of uncomfortable areas take place as well. This is also along with the surrounding and related body areas.
Charlotte has a great team of osteopaths in Coulsdon. Lauren Jardine joined in early 2017. Then in December 2017, Lizzie Blackwell stepped in as her locum osteopath. This was while Charlotte was on maternity leave and then joined the team permanently.
Lauren also focusses on long-term recovery and rehabilitation using structural osteopathic techniques. This is effective with minor sports injuries and/or longer-term postural issues amongst many other aches and pains. Lizzie can offer cranial osteopathic techniques as well as structural techniques. These are suitable for all ages including babies, children, and adults. Moreover, It is a very gentle approach to releasing tensions through the body.
