Marlow Osteopathic Clinic was founded in 1990 by Debbie Rogers and originally based at Bridge Dental Surgery in Marlow and then three years later moved to The Doctors House in Victoria Road, Marlow. Debbie was joined by Caroline Baker whilst working at the doctors’ surgery and together they established themselves as a centre of osteopathic care and excellence, looking after the local community. Whilst working alongside the doctors, nurses and staff at the surgery, they developed an understanding of the needs of the patients and a good working relationship with the medical team which made referrals between them and the medical practitioners there much easier.
In 2014 Marlow Osteopathic Clinic moved to its current location in the centre of Marlow High Street, alongside The Spinal Health Clinic in the beautiful building of Taylor House. In 2016 we were joined by another associate, Hazel Hanley and together our team offers appointments throughout the week, during evenings and Saturday mornings.
Our style of osteopathy uses traditional mechanical techniques including soft tissue massage, articulation and manipulation which we combine with rehabilitative exercises and lifestyle advice. We also balance our treatments with the use of dry needling techniques, ultrasound therapy and kinesiology taping where required. We work alongside other practitioners, Jackie Veryard and Mary Fryer at Taylor House to provide a holistic and comprehensive service for all the musculoskeletal needs of our patients. Jackie has been practising sports massage for over 27 years and Mary, founder of Ardent Pilates, works from the studio at the clinic and runs rehabilitative pilates classes and instruction.
The philosophy of Marlow Osteopathic Clinic is to provide a manual form of treatment that is gentle and complementary to conventional medicine. We use a structural and mechanical approach when diagnosing and treating our patients. The longevity of the practice and previous location of the clinic within the only GP’s surgery in Marlow illustrates that we are respected by the local GPs and have a good working relationship with them.
Osteopathy is a gentle and effective system of manual treatment that helps the body restore itself to normal function and so alleviates symptoms in the joints and soft tissues. We are mostly recognised for treating spinal pain, in particular back pain and neck pain and associated nerve pain such as sciatica. Our abilities to treat peripheral joints are also well recognised and respected, particularly in the field of sports medicine. We treat shoulders, elbows, wrists and hands, hips, knees ankles and feet whether the problems are sports-related or not.
When you attend the clinic for your initial assessment a thorough medical history will be taken, which coupled with an examination will allow us to diagnose the problems you are experiencing. Using this information, a personalized treatment plan will then be designed to account for your own individual circumstances and condition. We also discuss with our patients how they can improve their lifestyles and prevent further problems from occurring, whether this is through diet, exercise or postural advice.
Osteopathy can be of benefit to people of all ages, from children to the elderly. Our treatment helps people who have problems relating to their lifestyle whether their symptoms are due to poor posture, repetitive strain or injury either at work or whilst at home. It is extremely beneficial for expectant mothers who can no longer take medication for the aches and pains that pregnancy can bring. Deborah and Caroline have had many collective years of experience treating sports injuries and with the benefit of close links to other professionals offer the sport-person all round care.
