Welcome to the How Osteopathic Clinic

Edinburgh osteopath Helen How has been successfully treating patients at the How Osteopathic Clinic in Trinity, Edinburgh for over thirty years. As part of her continuing interest in ways of stimulating tissue repair, for the last five years Helen has been using Shockwave Therapy in addition to Traditional Osteopathy.  As part of the existing patient-centred rehabilitation and exercise programs,  Helen also uses a digital video system called PHYSITRACT and/or Whats  App.  This enables the How Clinic to provide customised exercise programs, videos and information to patients where necessary.

A Registered Osteopath, Helen combines the latest advances in osteopathy with a gentle patient-centred approach to diagnosis and treatment. Helen visited Storz Medical AG Switzerland in June 2018 to be updated by the Masters in Shockwave Therapy for Musculo-Skeletal Conditions and Osteopathic treatment at the How Clinic is suitable for a wide-range of conditions including; back pain, neck pain, sports injury, arthritis and repetitive strain injury. Helen, like all Osteopaths works and learns with fellow physiotherapists as rehabilitation is an essential part of Musculo-Skeletal Osteopathy.

Patient-Centred Osteopathy at The How Osteopathic Clinic

Osteopathic treatment at the How Osteopathic Clinic is tailored to the individual and a combination of osteopathic techniques including Traditional Osteopathy, Cranial Osteopathy, Electrotherapy, Vibrotherapy and Sports Remedial Massage may be used to treat your condition.

The How Osteopathic Clinic in Edinburgh is one of the only osteopathic clinics in Scotland to use Shockwave Therapy, a gentle and effective adjunct to quality rehabilitation and hands on osteopathy.  Rehabilitation is a slow progressive and can take from 4 months to a year or two to be fully realised according to the natural biological processes of cellular tissue repair and the effect of the ageing process on cell repair speed.

During her initial training as an Osteopath at the European School of Osteopathy,  Helen trained in Core Stability and Pilates with Mark Buckingham, Physiotherapist and she has continued her interest in rehabilitiative osteopathy and exercise-based tissue and muscle rehabiliation throughout her professional career.
