Welcome to Alan Coles & Associates Osteopathy
We have two osteopathy practices, our Kensington surgery is right opposite Gloucester Road Underground station and our Streatham surgery is just a few minutes walk from Tooting Bec Athletics Track, just off the Mitcham Lane.
Streatham Osteopaths has been serving the local community since 1987. We are based in the heart of the Furzedown Area of Streatham – a very family orientated area due to the quality of the schools in the area – both Primary and Secondary.
We often give talks at the Furzedown Project for the Elderly, The Rotary Club of Tooting,the Furzedown and Penwortham Primary Schools, and have excellent links with the Local GPs’ Surgeries.
Between the 4 of us we treat the whole age range from Babies to the Elderly and use both Structural and Cranio-Sacral approaches. From Sports injuries to arthritis- please do not hesitate to contact us at any time to ask us any questions you may have re Osteopathy and if we can help you.
We are pleased to announce that we now offer Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) at Streatham Osteopaths on Wednesday and Saturday with Robin Burby. This includes not only Acupuncture but also Herbalism.
We also have a Massage Therapist here – Justin Paul-providing Sports Massage.
Gloucester Road Surgery
Alan’s Osteopathy practice in Kensington is located at “The surgery”, a GP’s practice. It is conveniently located just 200m walk from Gloucester Road tube station immediately behind the parade of shops opposite it’s exit. It is nestled half way down the quiet Mews.
Alan has been working in Kensington and Chelsea since 1996 and has worked at the Courtfield Medical Centre prior to Stanhope Mews, as a result he has built up a good rapport with the local Gp’s.
If you have any enquiries or wish to make an appointment to see Alan please phone 07802 826 109.
Lower Back Pain/Neck Pain
These are the most common two areas treated by Osteopaths and are often caused by poor posture,stress,tension a sedentary lifestyle or prolonged spells at the computer. Conversely, to much physical activity can place undue strain on these vulnerable areas.
Trapped nerves (sciatica/arm pain)
This commonly presents as pins and needles/numbness/pain in any combination and usually in a specific area depending on which nerve is compressed. It can be the result of pressure directly on nerves from the spine due to a disc bulge, muscular tension, inflammation or degenerative changes.
Includes such conditions as golfer’s/tennis elbow, achilles tendonitis, shoulder complaints. Rehabilitation from injury or surgery is also a significant role of the Osteopath, this includes advice on how best to achieve a speedy and full recovery and also how too reduce your chance of injuries occurring in the future.
As a result of the postural demands and the ligament softening both during and after pregnancy back pain is a fairy common complaint. This can be managed well by Osteopathy.
Fluid retention (hands and feet) can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, heartburn and symphysis pubic pain are other common presentations. With pain relief being very limited in pregnancy are help and advice can provide a great deal of relief in this difficult time.
The Viscera-or internal organs are one of many areas of the body that Osteopaths treat on a regular basis. Conditions such as Digestive Problems, including indegestion, IBS, Premenstrual Syndrome(s), the alleviation of Asthmatic symptoms can all be affectively addressed by Osteopathy. By working on the organs themselves both directly and indirectly via the Nervous System many patients soon realise how much more we can treat!
Cranial-sacral osteopathy (babies & children)
Parents have been bringing their babies and children for osteopathic treatment for generations – for more and more conditions – but it is Colic in all its manifestations that is still the major one we see on a regular basis. Please phone us to discuss any concerns you may have and whether osteopathy could help you. It is a very gentle and non-invasive approach.
