Business overview

As an experienced Osteopath I aim to give you an explanation for your musculo-skeletal symptoms, and, if appropriate, give you hands-on treatment to relieve them.

I am a Registered Osteopath with over 30 years of experience of treating people with musculo-skeletal problems, including back and neck pain, arthritic and rheumatic pain.

I have worked in a NHS surgery with GPs for 20 years and have seen people with a wide range of problems.

A consultation consists of a full case history of your current problems, and previous investigations and treatments, and a medical history is taken to ascertain your level of health and vitality. This is followed by an examination including static examination and examination of active and passive movements of relevant joints, and muscles and soft tissues are palpated for tone and texture.

From the above, a picture begins to emerge about the symptoms and perhaps about how they came into being.

If there are no concerns about active pathology or fracture, I continue, with your consent, to administer hands-on treatment to relieve the symptoms. Advice to help yourself by stretching is usually also given.

highy recommended

I attended the clinic at Wandsworth Osteopathic Practice suffering from acute lower back pain. After one session the discomfort was completely gone, thanks to Mr Shah's expertise and his professional, caring approach. Would highly recommend. YG

Highly recommend

I've been visiting Mr Shah whenever I've had any back trouble for over 10 years now and I wouldn't go to anyone else. He is friendly, professional and very experienced and gets good results with noticeably improved movement after a session. Definitely recommend.

I have been visiting Ajay for the past 25 years for various problems. I have always found him to be very professional and thorough in his examination and treatment of the problem. he always tries to get to the root of the problem and demonstrates whatever defects he feels are causing the problem. After treatment it is always possible to see and feel a marked difference

Experienced, successful Osteopath

I went to see Ajay for about three months at the end of last year for severe back pain after my last pregnancy. His treatments always started with a thorough verbal and physical examination and were always gentle and successful. I stopped attending the sessions because the pain was gone. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
