About the Clinic

We have been providing osteopathic treatment to the local community since 1978 and pride ourselves on our consistently high quality clinical treatments. Our third and fourth year students carry out over 20,000 treatments a year supervised by specialist tutors. We provide specialist clinics for maternity care, children, sports injuries and MSK diagnostic ultrasound. The clinic has 26 treatment rooms, a number with direct disabled access and we offer free patient parking on site.

What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a distinct approach to healthcare based on a well established system of clinical diagnosis. Osteopaths focus on the structure of the body, using safe, natural, manual treatment which offers a caring approach to the individual needs of each patient – at all stages of life from birth to old age.

Predominantly gentle manipulative techniques are used to correct joint and tissue imbalances, allowing restoration of harmony within the patient’s body. Osteopathy treats the person, not just the disorder. The objective is the promotion of long-term health.

The ESO Clinic provides osteopathic treatment to the general public based from the Tonbridge Road site in Maidstone (Kent). For further information or to book an appointment visit our contact page.

If you are interested in studying osteopathy and would like more information, please feel free to visit undergraduate admissions.

History of Osteopathy

It was an American Doctor, Andrew Taylor Still, who in 1874 coined the word “osteopathy” and laid down the fundamental principles. Dr Still, through his clinical experiences, discoveries and inspiration, was the first physician to realise fully the profound relationship between the structure of the body and the way in which it functions. Still’s interpretation of cause and effect in the evolution of disease gives osteopathy a very special place in the history of healthcare.

What Can Osteopathy Help Treat

Osteopathy can help provide relief for the body’s structural, mechanical and functional problems in people of all ages helping to relieve patients from different types of pain and a variety of conditions such as:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Sciatica
  • Sports injuries
  • Tension
  • Arthritic pain
  • Neuralgia
  • Back pain
  • Frozen shoulder

Giving a list of conditions that osteopaths help treat can sometimes give a false picture. Osteopaths treat people, not conditions, and we are able to help in many ways when a person’s function is affected by their structure, however that manifests. Osteopathy can help people of all ages recover from all types of pain including those suffered as a result of sports injuries and even women suffering from pregnancy related symptoms.

The ESO Clinic provides osteopathic treatment to the general public based from the Tonbridge Road site in Maidstone (Kent). For further information or to book an appointment visit our contact page.

Regulation of Osteopathy

Statutory recognition was achieved with the passage of the Osteopaths Act in 1993, thereby making osteopathy the first complementary healthcare profession to be accorded a statutory regulated framework. In the same year the British Medical Association recognised osteopathy as being a “discrete clinical discipline”.

The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) was formed to set standards of training, professional and ethical conduct for the whole profession, visit osteopathy.org.uk for more details. Only those who can satisfy the new GOsC’s requirements are admitted to its register and entitled to call themselves “osteopaths”. Thus a patient consulting a fully qualified osteopath is afforded the same safeguards as when visiting a doctor or any other statutory regulated healthcare professional.
