About Me #01

Elaine Elkington, Registered Osteopath

I have been a Registered Osteopath since 2000 after training with The European School of Osteopathy, Maidstone. In this same year I undertook post-graduate training in London with the Sutherland Cranial College.

With osteopathy practices in Bethnal Green, East London, Primrose hill, Camden and Southsea, Portsmouth, I offer treatment for all the family, including babies and toddlers. I treat all ages from the very young to the very old! My youngest patient to date is 2 days old and my oldest was 95 years old. I have been qualified as an Osteopath for over 15 years and I work using both cranial technique and conventional osteopathy.

As well as treating babies, I enjoy treating children and teenagers although don't get this opportunity as much as I'd like as many parents are not aware that Osteopaths can help children. I treat children with injuries such as a knee strain from dancing and teenagers for problems such as sport related injuries and head or neck pain as well as tension or anxiety from the pressures of school life and exams. I have also treated younger children for less obvious things such as being fidgety; easily distracted; lacking co-ordination in gross movements; being off-colour for a few days for no apparent reason. Children mostly have good vitality and usually respond well to treatment.

Patients sometimes ask why I have a practice in Portsmouth as well as London. This is because I have an elderly mother there who I am able to help by being close to hand. Family is important to me and being able to be involved in the care of my elderly father at the end of his life was something very special.
