At Osteopathy At Home, our Osteopath Stevenage and Hitchin Osteopath Home Visit Service, our approaches are designed for all types of people, whether you are in a physical or sedentary job and lifestyle. The service takes away all the difficulties of going to a clinic, while still experiencing the same level of Professional Osteopathic Service received if attending a clinic.
As someone with regular pain and fibromyalgia, I can highly recommend Osteopathy at Home and Michael Parr. For over 10 years I visited numerous physios, osteopaths, sports therapists and everything in-between with no long-term improvement or development. Suffering with neck, shoulder, upper and lower back pain, I would usually visit a practitioner once or twice a week, while problems were acute. Since meeting Michael some 6 years ago, my visits are now once or twice every three months - Michael's plan for me right from the beginning. Michael not only fixes short term pain with careful manipulation but develops one-to-one exercise plans to help prevent re-occurrence of the issues. I've never been looked after with such interest and attention to detail, Michael’s knowledge of the physical body and systems are second to none in my opinion.
Stevenage and Hitchin Treatments
Effective osteopathic physical manual therapy
Uses gentle soft tissue, mobilisation and manipulation techniques on the body; helps encourage the body to return to a better structure and function.
Motor control training
With a primary focus on function over structure. Works to assist motor control and restore ideal functional postures. Effective sports injury rehabilitation.
Leading the way in Osteopathic lymphatic diagnosis
The technique is a specialised doctoral research-based Osteopathic approach, which has undergone an NHS trial for its effective diagnostic assistance.
I visited Michael following a recommendation from a friend. My previous osteopath had 'maintained' the problems with my lower back. Michael's approach is not only to relieve discomfort, but to work on weak areas and improve muscle tone and flexibility. We have made steady progress and I am now able to undertake fairly strenuous walks e.g. in the Lake District and still be mobile and pain-free at the end of them. He is patient and always explains why we are doing particular exercises and ensures that I am doing them correctly. Michael's approach is holistic. We have discussed other areas of my health and he has suggested complementary supplements to improve these.
1.5 Hour Diagnostic Consultation
For those who want the most from their time with a practitioner
This 1.5 hour consultation will be one of the most detailed consultations you have had by any health care provider. It will focus around your musculoskeletal health, but with a broader overview.
A year ago, when I was at my lowest, I could barely leave the house. I was suffering with a bad back and neck ache, fatigue, headaches and many other symptoms. Since starting the treatment in April 2012 my life has changed. I have passed my AS and some of my A level exams, which I had previously failed, and I have also passed my driving test. I am now almost symptom free, thanks to Michael Parr.
