Sam Winder is a graduate of the College of Osteopathy, based in Boreham Wood. He graduated as a registered Osteopath in 2003. He is recognised by all of the main insurance companies as a qualified Osteopath; although he no longer acts for BUPA patients, due to their altered terms and conditions. Sam is based in Iver, Buckinghamshire, offering his treatments to the surrounding areas of Windsor, Slough, Langley, Uxbridge and Hayes.
Sam's practice is mainly structural. He is a licenced practitioner of the Perrin Technique, and also treats dogs.
Osteopathy is a method of assessing, treating and preventing a wide range of health problems. Osteopaths use a combination of movement, stretching, targeted deep tissue massage and manipulation of a person's muscles and joints to improve function, relieve pain and aid recovery.
conditions affecting children, such as poor sleeping / feeding, and the painful joints of the elderly can be treated to improve the quality of life for the whole family.
Your first appointment will last approximately an hour. During this time, we will take a detailed case history of the complaint(s) that are affecting you. We will look into your general health, and examine the structure and function of your body by observation and by touch, in order to reach a working diagnosis. These findings will be discussed with you, so that you understand those aspects that contribute to your pain pattern, the nature of treatment that we propose, both in the short and long term, and the likely prognosis.
Treatment will normally consist of techniques designed to balance and modify the structure and function of the body. In general treatment is soothing and gentle, involving massage, stretching and the movement of joints throughout their range of motion, in a harmonic fashion. Sometimes restrictions within joint motion require rapid movements to cause an effective change, but in all cases the treatment is designed to be comfortable, and as pain-free as possible. Exercises will normally be given to help maintain the improvement, achieved during the session.
For further details, please refer to the institute of osteopathy.
Sam has received post graduate qualifications in the treatment of dogs from the European School of Osteopathy. Osteopaths treat dogs in quite a different way to vets. You will find that your dog quite enjoys the treatment, which doesn't promote a fear reflex that most vetinary clinics do.
The treatment of animals is by law a veterinary business. Before we can see your dog, we must contact your vet to get a case history.
Appointments are available on occasions at the weekends, and evenings in addition to normal working hours.
