Denise Carey M.Ost DO BSc. ND
Denise is a registered osteopath and obtained a masters degree in Osteopathy from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine where she graduated in 2013.
Since then she’s been working in private practice. Becoming an osteopath allowed her to fulfil her dream of not only helping people but studying science in depth.
Denise set up her own osteopathic practice in early 2017 and now works in Croydon. Already, she has helped many people get out of pain and become much more healthy.
Denise is a health and fitness enthusiast and believes this and her people skills are what led her to train as an osteopath. Denise researches the latest scientific papers daily and also practises Pilates, yoga and circuit training 3 days a week.
Denise has a combination of precise skill and understanding which means that she delivers the highest level of osteopathic treatment tailored to each individual. She believes educating a patient on their condition is an integral part of osteopathic treatment.
She uses high-velocity low amplitude thrusts, commonly known as the “the clicking” but only when it is safe to do so and with full consent from her patient.
Other techniques she uses include muscle energy techniques which are a form of stretch that increases the range of motion in a joint through lengthening a muscle. She performs osteopathic massages to get the joints prepared for adjustments.
Denise also gives exercises for you to do to improve and sustain your recovery and will also back this up by sending you the exercises through email along with a video to ensure you’re doing the exercises correctly.
