Lorna Rose – Osteopath

After ignoring a shoulder injury for years, a friend persuaded me to get it looked at. From my first visit to Lorna she made me feel relaxed and comfortable, and made a real difference to the discomfort that I had thought would be permanent. Each week that I went back to see her she took the time to talk to me about how I was feeling and changed the treatment accordingly. I felt listened to and like she was really trying to fix the issue by getting to the root of it, rather than just making an initial diagnosis and sticking to it. In a very few sessions the difference my treatment with Lorna has made has been huge.

Osteopath in Elephant and Castle

Lorna Rose

I studied for four years and qualified as an osteopath at the British School of Osteopathy, receiving an Integrated Masters of Osteopathy (MOst) with distinction from the largest and oldest osteopathic school in the UK. I am a fully insured and registered member of the General Osteopathic Council and adhere to their strict professional rules of conduct and practice. In addition to my osteopathic training, I have an ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy which I obtained with Distinction.

I treat lots of expectant mothers and am enthusiastic about the benefits of osteopathy during pregnancy and post-partum. Many commonly-experienced conditions during pregnancy can be easily treated and resolved with osteopathy. I regularly attend conferences to learn about the newest advances in antenatal care and work closely alongside Midwives, yoga and pilates teachers to ensure patients receive the best possible outcomes from treatment.

I have a special interest in treating complex or chronic issues which may not have responded to other forms of treatment. I especially enjoy treating patients with chronic headaches or facial pain, for whom there are limited allopathic treatment options.

I took part in the development of the OsteoMAP approach, integrating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness techniques into the osteopathic management of chronic pain patients. Since then I have furthered my knowledge of ACT through short courses and attending meetings with other OsteoMAP practitioners. I am passionate about the benefits of mindfulness and continue to use this approach to help patients with chronic pain to live fuller lives.

I am continually developing my professional practice through further study. I have completed postgraduate training in cranial osteopathy with Sutherland Cranial College and multiple short courses in paediatric osteopathy. Post-qualification, I spent three years under the mentorship of Nicholas Woodhead and Christopher Stapleton in one of the UK’s most respected paediatric osteopathic practices.

I have  key interest in research and in 2014 was invited to present my thesis, exploring the use of reassurance with the osteopathic management of low back pain, at the annual Chiropractic Osteopathy Physiotherapy Conference in London.

I am passionate about increasing accessibility to osteopathy and always put patients needs first. Osteopathy is a complementary therapy, which means that we work supportively alongside GP’s, Radiologists, Physiotherapists and Orthopaedic Consultants to ensure that patients get the most appropriate and safe treatment.
