The Rainham osteopathic Clinic COVID Rules
So you are aware in advance of coming in, we will be wearing PPE as advised by our professional body. This will comprise an apron, face mask and visor if for medical reasons you are unable to wear a face mask. This is not anything to be concerned about, this is our way of ensuring your health and our commitment to your safety.
By the same token, we would also ask you to wear gloves and a mask or face covering when you attend the clinic (unless medically exempt).
To help maintain social distancing and to allow us time to thoroughly disinfect surfaces between appointments, we are allowing additional time between appointments. We would ask you not to arrive more than 5 minutes before your appointment time if possible and ring us before coming into the practice. If you are travelling by car, please wait in your car when you arrive, ring us to let us know you are here and we will ring you back when we are ready for you to come in.

Osteopaths Medway, Kent
If you are searching for experienced Osteopaths Medway, Rainham, Gillingham, Chatham, Rochester, Sittingbourne in Kent or anywhere around the Medway towns then look no further.
When you visit the Rainham Osteopathic Clinic based in Medway, Kent for the first time, you will be introduced to your local osteopath who will take you to one of our comfortable treatment rooms. The initial consultation will last up to 1 hour. The Osteopath will spend 10-15 minutes asking questions about the complaint and your past medical history.
You will then be asked to undress to your underwear so the Osteopath can examine your posture and spine. You will be asked to carry out a series of movements. The Osteopath may check your reflexes and may take your blood pressure, may carry out an abdominal examination and any other relevant diagnostic tests and examinations. The muscles and joints will be examined.
Your Osteopath will discuss your problem and its treatment. Your Osteopath is happy to answer your questions and give you as much advice as possible. If happy to proceed with treatment. it will then be given. Exercises and even dietary changes may also be suggested or prescribed as we believe in prevention rather than cure.
60 to 70% of us may suffer with an episode of low back pain at least once in our lives in industrialised countries (WHO). The world health organisation describes low back pain in this context “…the causes of the onset of low back pain remain obscure and diagnosis difficult to make.
Neck pain is a common occurrence and many of the main neck muscles have their point of attachment at the base of the skull. There are also nerves that supply the head that originate in the upper neck. Because of these connections head pain and headaches are often associated with neck pain.
We typically examine the whole body because any part of the body can affect onto the next part of the body in its chain. As ever, at Rainham Osteopathic Clinic we focus on prevention rather than cure and can give sports people advice on warm ups and warm downs specific to their individual requirements.
The human body is designed to move, it is key to our health to do so but our modern lifestyle unfortunately forces us to sit for prolonged periods of time at desks, in cars, even on the sofa at home. This can cause stiffness and other problems in the musculo-skeletal system such as muscle and tendon injuries, slipped discs etc.
