"High quality affordable osteopathic care"


Welcome to the BCOM Clinic 

About Us

Our osteopathic teaching clinic offers dedicated osteopathic care by clinical Masters students under the supervision of experienced Registered Osteopaths.

At BCOM Clinic we are renowned for providing affordable osteopathic care and our unique holistic or naturopathic approach to osteopathy. We offer treatment for many musculoskeletal conditions. The well-established clinic offers approximately 11,000 patient appointments each year. Patients of all ages come to BCOM Clinic for treatment of a wide variety of conditions.

When contacting the clinic, we will offer you an appointment at the earliest opportunity. We also offer health screening including fitness assessments, BodPod assessments and bone scans at our research clinics based at our Finchley Road site.

At BCOM, we take a naturopathic approach to health, which means we focus on helping you improve your overall health, as well as your muscle or joint pain.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy utilises manual therapy and a range of non-invasive techniques to provide pain relief and rehabilitation. This aims to improve the mobility of your joints and relieve tension in the muscles to enable it to heal more effectively. Using manual therapy, health advice and sometimes exercise, tailored to the needs of the individual, people of all ages see osteopaths. Osteopaths are highly trained healthcare professionals, with a four year degree, and are experts in the musculoskeletal (MSK) system – that is the muscles, joints and associated tissues and their relationship with other systems of the body.

Osteopathy is popular amongst athletes and sports enthusiasts, as it provides muscle and joint pain relief and helps to increase mobility. It can also be highly effective for those with age-related concerns, people requiring rehabilitation following an accident or those suffering with back pain from working in an office environment.

Osteopathy can alleviate pain and help with a range of conditions and concerns, from sporting injuries, postural problems, and hip or joint aches, to digestive problems, migraines and rheumatic pain. The focus of osteopathic treatment is to handle the root cause of your symptoms, to reduce pain and discomfort and improve your overall wellbeing. The benefits of osteopathy include improved bodily functions and mobility, a regular and more restful sleep pattern, increased energy levels, a reduction in stress and muscle tension, and a positive impact on your mood.

  • Naturopathic Osteopathy at BCOM
    • Our philosophy of Naturopathic Osteopathic Medicine focuses on disease prevention by taking into account your unique physical make-up and lifestyle factors such as diet, posture, exercise and stress management.

      Our osteopathic treatment is based on a holistic philosophy which is suitable for a wide range of conditions. Treatment may involve massage and gentle joint manipulation. We also aim to optimise your health with self-care lifestyle advice including diet, exercise, stress management, posture, and hydrotherapy. 96% of BCOM Clinic patients are given self care advice for their condition and 88% are given preventative advice.

      Supporting our patients to enable them to gain the most from their treatment is vital to our ethos. We aim to put you in control of your health and to help you prevent reoccurrence of the problem.

      Patients receive a tailor-made package of care and the gentleness of the treatment makes it ideal for all age ranges, from children to the elderly.
