Based a few minutes walk from London Waterloo and Southwark stations in SE1, Evolution Osteopathy is a long established, experienced and friendly clinic providing Osteopathic assessment and treatment, Sports and Remedial Massage and Dry Needling.

  • A very efficient and convenient osteopathy clinic. Have had great results over the years seeing a variety of practitioners (Matt, Steffan, Tristan, Stéphanie, Ed,..) for issues like trapped nerves, a multitude of back pains from injury or bad posture and (to my surprise) adjusting my clicking jaw. I have always walked out of that practice with a lot less pain than entering and clued on. They're central, appointments are easy to arrange online even last minute and weekends, and there's a very reasonable and wide range of discounts available depending on your situation. A good contact to keep and forward to others when needed.
  • I went to Tristan with severe back problems, and the experience was exceptional. The treatment was effective, and I noticed significant improvement after just a few sessions. Highly professional and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
  • Tristan has been fantastic, offering clear advice in the process of treating my back pain. Evolutions service has been excellent, professional, and friendly. I would highly recommend this practice.
  • I was looking for an osteopath who also provided dry needling/acupuncture and I’m so glad I found Evolution Osteopathy. I have had a few different people work on my back over the years after various injuries have led me to a bulging disk and recently suffering from sciatica. Not only is Matthew extremely knowledgeable and able to help advise on how to manage my symptoms and plan my treatment according to my needs, he also is very happy to concentrate on any specific concerns I have that week. He truly focusses on treating my back for a long term sustainable plan. I have seen a really drastic reduction in pain and I’m only 3 treatments in. I can’t recommend Evolution enough!
  • Good service! One therapist does needling and osteopathy together. Also, Tristan is a very good osteopath and helped me a lot. You can book online and I would suggest you to do it around 4-5 days before depending on the time you want to come. It is rather on the pricey side but Tristan and Mr. Wood know what they are doing. There is a waiting area inside and also a toilet.

    Sophie has been amazing at helping to address my back pain and posture issues. Not only has the treatment been brilliant, Sophie's understanding of anatomy and her explanations of how the body works has been so helpful. Importantly we haven't just treated my back issues but also worked hard on prevention. Everyone I've interacted with at the clinic have been a delight.

    Highly recommend. I’ve been a regular patient at Evolution over the past few months for a long standing issue, however since seeing Matthew my symptoms have eased and I’ve felt supported with detailed advice on exercises I can do in between visits. Very knowledgable and I feel I’m very safe hands. A really friendly service and an appointment I look forward to going to.

    Would highly recommend Matthew . I’ve have seen a lot of different practitioners over the years but Matthew is the only one who takes the time to follow up appointments , to properly prepare your body with massage or acupuncture before manipulating. He’s really helped me in a short time with my neck and back pain . Would highly recommend.

    Amazing service. I have been treated by Sophie Milne several times for different injuries and she literally fixed me on the spot. It’s also super easy to book. Highly recommended.
  • positive
    I had developed chronic lower back pain that no doctor/physio could really help me with with a long-term solution. Matt Wood has been truly exceptional - not only he explained in plain English what the issue was but I have felt a tremendous improvement since I started seeing him. He is very thorough in his approach and helped me adapt my life style to see a lasting change. Highly recommended to go and see him.
Osteopathy and Manual Therapy

Osteopathy

Osteopathy and Manual therapy are systems of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. Osteopaths work with the structure and function of the body, and work is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.

To an osteopath or therapist, for your body to work well, its structure must also work well. So osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. Clinicians use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, as well as helping your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and to prevent symptoms recurring. When surgery has been required, osteopathy is highly useful in returning the joint or muscles into health and in restoring movement.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling

We provide Western Medical Acupuncture, otherwise known as Dry Needling. Dry Needling involves the application of acupuncture needles into tight, painful areas in your muscles known as “Trigger Points”, or sometimes referred to as “knots” in the muscles.

Dry Needling is performed to elicit a healing response in these tissues, but is different to traditional acupuncture as it is not necessarily aimed at specific “acupuncture” points. Dry needling has been proven to be a very effective way of relaxing muscles in spasm, reducing inflammation and relieving pain.

Acupuncture has been used in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years. In the last decade western medicine has shown a growing interest in acupuncture and dry needling (needling into trigger points in the muscles). As a result the quality and quantity of research into the benefits of needling injuries has increased. Although more research needs to be done, it is becoming clearer why needling has stood the test of time in Chinese medicine.

Massage

Sports and Remedial Massage

Sports and Remedial Massage are great tools to help treat and soothe low level injuries and tired muscles related to activity and exercise. Our team of highly trained practitioners can offer a variety of techniques designed to help prevent injuries occurring or to assist in the treatment of injury.

Sports or remedial massage is a form of manual therapy which is geared toward participants in sports and athletics primarily but can also be helpful to all. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help people recover from workouts and injuries. Pure Sports massage has three basic forms: pre-event massage, post-event massage, and maintenance massage.

Deep tissue massage focuses on the soft tissues that surround the skeletal structure. By that definition it goes beyond the standard ‘holistic’ massage (which is relaxing and normally non-specific) and will focus on specific pain and injury.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to expect Icon

What To Expect On Your First Visit

On your first visit to the clinic, we will take a full case history and medical background, not only to assist in diagnosis of your complaint, but to ensure that you are screened effectively in order to be suitable for Osteopathic treatment.

After the case history, you will be examined whilst you are standing in order to see how your body is moving as a whole: sometimes the area that hurts is caused by tissues elsewhere in the body and so it is important in order review the whole body to gain the full picture when first beginning treatment. In order to do this, we will ask you to dress down to your underwear, so if you would like to bring shorts or a vest top with you to make you more comfortable then please do.

Once we have gained a working diagnosis and ascertained you are suitable for intervention, treatment will commence. Note that treatment on the first session may be limited due to the time spent screening, but any further sessions will focus more on treatment, as the case history and diagnosis has already been completed.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask when booking or at any time during your treatment session.

How much treatment is necessary?

One of the questions asked the most by new patients is “how many sessions do you think I will need?” Our response is that every patient is an individual and as such predicting how fast an individual will get better is not an exact science and can rely on many factors, and normally by session number two, a fairly accurate plan of treatment can be provided.

One of our main ethos here at Evolution is that we only ever see a patient for the number of times it take them to get better. We don’t believe in bulk bookings, or asking patients back when we don’t feel that it would benefit them. We really aren’t all about the numbers and to be honest, if we see a patient twice and that’s all it take for them to heal and get better, then we’re happy that our job is done.
