Why live with Pain?
At Hove Osteopathic Clinic we believe that too many people live with pain that do not have to, as most problems can be easily solved.
Our goal is to relieve your pain and get you on the move to enjoy the fullness of life again.
Update 21/05/2020- Back to face to face appointments
- We might look a bit different…. Our osteopaths will be seeing you with PPE. We will be wearing: full visor, mask, gloves and apron, which will be changed for each patient.
- Just prior to lockdown, we had removed the soft couch over from the plinth, which we plan to continue, so it is easier to keep clean.
- Appointment times have been made longer, to allow for extra cleaning.
- Our team are the only people to use our room, meaning we are reducing the risk of cross contamination between practitioners.
- Operating a phased return, to allow for space between sessions for deep cleaning. Currently, Richard will be at the clinic on Tuesdays 1-6pm and Emma Fridays 8:30-1.
- To reduce face to face time in the clinic, all new patients will be given choice of first half (30mins) of consultation via zoom, which involves taking a case history.
- All patients will be kindly required to wear mask to consults. If you have one, you are welcome to bring your own along, however if you would like to use one of ours, we can give you one for £3, which will be added to your bill.
- When appointments are booked, a questionnaire will be sent out to each patient to make sure everyone is fit to come into the clinic.
- Temperature checks will be made with an infra-red thermometer
- We would ask that you arrive no more than 5 minutes before the appointment, to limit the amount of people in the waiting room.
Update 8/5/2020- Online appointments
We’ve all been in lockdown for a while now and we want to make sure that you are all keeping well. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you we are still here for you during this difficult time.
As a team, we have been working hard at looking into different ways of working and trying to make our service safely available to those who need it. We have decided to launch on-line treatments.
We’ve thought long and hard about how to make this work best for everyone, as of course we will not be able to provide the same hands-on style care using an online platform. However… this is only part of what we do as Osteopaths… as an equally important part of our treatment plan is the assessing the problem and suggesting stretches and exercises to ease discomfort and this is something we can offer during an online video consultation.
- Online initial consultation (upto 40 mins) £40
- Online follow up consultation (upto 30 mins) £30
- Telephone check-in (upto 10 mins) Free for existing clients
- All online consultations free to NHS workers- regardless of being an existing client

MORE ABOUT US
We will put you first and do what we can to help you to the fullest extent possible.
This includes honest free advice if you have anything you are not sure about. We will not not seeing you more than is necessary or refer you on to someone else if we think they can help you recover quicker or are more appropriate to help you.
Osteopathy is not just about treating symptoms. Osteopaths are trained to seek out and treat the underlying cause of the pain and can thus also help to prevent future recurrences. The causes could be due to a recent injury, postural strains, stress or an underlying disease. We also help guide patients into a better self care regime by advising on lifestyle, diet and exercise.
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a system of manual medicine that diagnoses, treats and helps to prevent problems arising within the musculoskeletal system. This includes assessing and treating faults in joints….
