We pride ourselves on offering a 6- step treatment process ensures that we provide the best care, from understanding what to expect on your first visit, to treating your problem and listening to your feedback.
We also offer video consultations, which can be used to diagnose whether further treatment is needed without a visit to the clinic. They can help with setting up your home or office workstation.

What We Treat
Osteopath manipulating patient’s spine to help with back pain
Osteopathy can help with many problems including back pain and sports injury
Osteopathy is a manual hands on therapy that works primarily by manipulating the joints and muscles in the body to both prevent and treat problems.
We treat problems like back pain and neck aches, joint pains such as hip, knee or ankle pain, sports injuries and chronic conditions such as sciatica and scoliosis.
At Body Back-Up we treat not just where it hurts but why it hurts. Pain in one area of the body may often be a symptom of tension or misalignment somewhere else, which is the real problem that needs be treated. We are also experts at diagnosing lifestyle factors that could be causing your problem, such as a poor workstation setup, bad position whilst driving, etc.
We are registered with and regulated by the General Osteopathic Council.
Body Back-Up was established by Robin Lansman in 1988 to provide treatment and advice for people suffering from muscular and joint pains. We now have four osteopaths working across two clinics, and have treated thousands of satisfied patients over 32 years
Robin is a past President of the Institute of Osteopathy. He has represented his profession at many events in the UK and around the world and appears regularly on BBC radio and television as an expert on musculoskeletal problems like back pain.
The four main principles of osteopathy, created by its founder Dr. Andrew Taylor Still at the end of the 19th century, form the basis of osteopathic thinking and influence osteopathic treatment plans.
The Four Principles of Osteopathy are:
1) The body is a unit
The body is considered as a whole. Each part affects each and every other part and the whole is greater than simply the sum of its parts.
2) Structure governs function
If the structure of the body is compromised (for example through injury, overuse, strain, etc.), then it is very likely to have an adverse affect on its function (for example manifesting as pain, stiffness, instability, etc.).
3) The body is its own ‘Medicine Chest’
Every person has their own built in healing mechanisms, which can be stimulated and supported by removing restrictive barriers. Once the barriers are removed, the body is usually able to resolve all but the most serious conditions.
4) The ‘Rule of the Artery’ is supreme
For healing to occur there needs to be a good enough blood supply to provide the troubled area!
