Cause of condition/ injury: Her pain was caused by prolonged desk work, as well as stress in the workplace which put tension on her neck and shoulders and caused persistent headaches.

PENSHURST CASE STUDY 3
Patient name: Mrs. Hellski
Location: Penshurst, Kent
Condition they needed treatment for: Mrs. Hellski came to see us as she was suffering from plantar fasciitis.
Cause of condition/ injury: She developed plantar fasciitis due to prolonged standing at work over the course of six months. The constant pressure on her heels lead to a breakdown in strength and the fascia, and caused inflammation that resulted in severe pain.
Treatment offered: We treated Mrs. Hellski with shockwave therapy, to help the fascia in her heels regenerate and gain strength.
Result of treatment and prognosis: Mrs. Hellski has since then made a full recovery and experiences no pain whatsoever in her heels. She has gained enough strength in her feet and legs to avoid a recurrence of her injury.
Everyone! We treat children, teens, adults and older adults.
An average initial consultation & treatment will last between 30-45 minutes. Any follow-up treatments will last between 20-30 minutes.
Osteopathy can be uncomfortable on occasion when working on painful or tender areas. However your therapist will work with you to determine your pain tolerance. If the pain is too much, we’ll adjust as necessary.
A full assessment will be taken by your therapist before you start treatment. This may require further imaging to confirm a diagnosis. On average, patients attend 4-6 sessions, however, this may need to be reviewed 8-10 weeks post-treatment to ensure long-lasting results
Although there may be some immediate pain relief, it is important to remember that this does not mean the injury or condition is fully healed. Osteopathy works best as part of a rehabilitation and treatment plan which may include other exercises or changes to help manage your condition. It is important to review progress regularly with your physician to ensure long-term results.
You may experience a slight reddening or swelling of the affected area post-treatment, however, for most people, this is accompanied by a reduction in pain.
Your initial consultation for Osteopathy is £60 and any follow-ups cost £50
We also offer discounts for patients when purchasing a treatment package.
6 Treatments – £320
8 Treatments – £380
