Osteopathy in Finsbury Park and Clapton
Gorska Osteopathy has provided 12 years of professional, caring and affordable treatment within Haringey and Hackney. My aim is to provide my patients with quality health care using a friendly and down to earth approach to osteopathy. I strive to make your treatment sessions positive and energetic and provide you with information and support to aid your return to feeling back to your normal self. If you are in pain I am always happy to discuss your symptoms, the possible causes and whether osteopathic treatment may be of help to you. I look forward to meeting you at my clinic.
What I Treat
Although the most common complaints I see are are neck and back related, osteopathy is very effective in treating many other aches, pains and conditions. I can help with the following:
– Back pain
– Neck & shoulder pain
– Pelvic & hip pain
– Knee, ankle & foot problems
– Elbow, hand & wrist problems
– Sports injuries
– Trapped or pinched nerves
– Whiplash & traumatic injuries
– Pre & post natal aches and pains
– Pain & stiffness associated with arthritis
– Occupational & repetitive strain injuries
My first degree was a BSc Honours in Sport Science and I have extensive experience of both participating and working in sport. In past years I have competed in, as well as coached, a variety of sports including volleyball, tennis and swimming.
I am experienced in treating acute injuries including common neck and lower back strains and sporting injuries, as well as chronic conditions which might result from poor posture due to slumping over a lap top or wear and tear conditions such as arthritis or RSI. I am experienced in treating women with pregnancy related pains and have also completed additional training in foot biomechanics, orthotic prescription and kynesio sports taping.
My approach to osteopathy is structural and I enjoy working with the full spectrum of ages from the young to the old. It is of vital importance to me that the treatment plan is tailored with you according to your needs.
As well as treating patients from my Hackney and Haringey based clinics I work at The College of Osteopaths assisting with delivering the practical side of the 5 year degree programme to the osteopathy students. I also volunteer weekly as a mentor at the brilliant new osteopathy graduate scheme at CORE (Centre of Osteopathic Research and Excellence) in Clapton Hackney.
I am a proud parent, keen commuter cyclist, lap swimmer and ardent dog walker.
What My Patients Say
What Happens During A Treatment
Each person and condition is treated individually so techniques used may not be the same as the next person or even in your next session.
Some treatment modalities are:
Soft tissue manipulation (massage techniques)
– Joint mobilization (gentle rhythmical movements to improve joint range)
– Joint manipulation (small adjustments made to joints to release restriction and reduce pain)
– Muscle energy technique (a type of stretching that uses muscle contractions to improve joint range)
– Exercise prescription and self-management advice
– Kynesio taping may also be applied to assist recovery and offload painful muscles and joints
– Advice regarding orthotics or heel lift may also be provided
Your follow up treatments take 35 to 45 minutes, and normally between 2 and 6 sessions are required. Many patients decide that they would like to have periodic preventative/ maintenance treatments.
What should I wear for osteopathic treatments?
Should I bring anything to my appointment?
Is osteopathic treatment painful?
Occasionally treatment can leave you feeling some discomfort, especially the next day, whilst your body adapts and processes inflammation.
What about cancellations?
What about health insurance?
A number of changes have been implemented at the clinic for your and Eva’s safety.
” Eva will be wearing PPE (disposable gloves, mask and apron) for added safety.
” Treatments times will be staggered to ensure time for airing and cleaning and to avoid patients coming in contact with one another.
” All patients will be contacted the day before their treatment to go through some screening questions about their overall health
” All patients will be asked about recent Covid-19 symptoms. Those with recent symptoms or those in contact with someone with the virus will not be treated at the clinic.
In some cases and for those in vulnerable groups, face-to-face treatment may not be appropriate. However, Eva will continue to assist you as much as possible using video or telephone communication
For any further information please do not hesitate to contact Eva on 07815781037 or firstname.lastname@example.org
