the osteopathy clinic - Osteopath - Hendon

3 Cheyne Walk, Hendon
London, NW4 3QH


As someone who has had back surgery and had chronic pain, Shital at The Osteopathy Clinic has been my life line. I am so pleased to have found her. With her intervention I have remained pain free for most of the time: she is reactive and responsive to my needs, highly competent and professional whilst also being open and warm. I have had many years of being in the hands of other practitioners and can honestly say that she is, without doubt, the best. - JKO, London, 2013


Fully accredited by the UK organisation which regulates licensing under the 1993 Osteopaths Act.

In practice since 1999.
Newly located in specially-converted Hendon premises.

If what you’ve read here makes sense and you’re suffering from any of symptoms mentioned, why not pay us a visit here at the Osteopathy Clinic.

We’ll be pleased to meet you and discuss how we can help you get back to health and enjoying a full active life again.

What Does It Involve?

During your first visit we’ll take your full medical history so we’ve a full understanding of how to proceed. And we’ll also discuss your lifestyle, diet and general posture. We’ll find out a bit more about your symptoms and the factors that affect them and what your expectation levels and goals are.

How Long Will It Last?

Your first visit to us will last about half an hour.

What Will I Need To Do?

We may ask you to remove your top layer of clothing and carry out a simple series of movements so we can get a full understanding of your condition.  It also allows us to identify which structures in your body could be causing your pain or discomfort – and to assess whether your body as a whole is moving as freely as it can.
We’ll then agree a way to proceed with you based on your requirements.
