Osteopathy is a hands-on therapy that utilises joint movement and massage techniques to muscles to improve function and reduce discomfort. Osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners, meaning you do not need a GP's referral to make your first appointment. We will take your case history and examine you to find your diagnosis, providing treatment and a plan of action in your first session.
Freya has a special interest in osteoarthritis, aiming to inform, treat, and provide long term management strategies to patients suffering with the condition. An arthritis diagnosis does not have to mean waiting for the joint to progress to the point of needing surgery. Read more about osteoarthritis here.
We accept some forms of private health insurance. Please let the clinic know which insurer you intend to claim through before your appointment.
I am particularly interested in helping patients to manage their osteoarthritis, and I’ve written more on the topic here. To summarise, although OA is degenerative, the cartilage affected is still living, and the local health can be improved with the right treatment and advice. This slows the progression and symptoms.
Pelvic pain and other symptoms are too often overlooked or ignored, so I have undertaken additional training to address this in clinic. Alongside pain, I may be able to help with weakness, tension, and some bladder issues. You can read more here.
Freya graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 2016, having undertaken antenatal and advanced spinal manipulation modules. She worked in the Manchester area for three years, developing a special interest in osteoarthritis. Patients describe her treatment style as gentle, but she can still utilise stronger techniques such as manipulation (joint clicking) where appropriate. This makes her suitable for treating patients from all walks of life, accepting patients from the age of 7 years.
Freya is now the lead osteopath at the Little Buckingham Clinic, where she has worked since its opening in 2021. She also works at FORM Osteopathy in Oldbrook, Milton Keynes during the week. LBC currently offers Saturday appointments which are available to book here.
Since moving back to Buckinghamshire, Freya has researched, illustrated, and written over 500 blog posts for other osteopaths alongside her clinical work.
