The Paul Manley Back Pain and RSI clinic is located at The London Natural Health Centre, 46 Theobalds Rd, London, WC1X  8NW

The opening hours are from 9am to 7pm. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

For the first twenty years of my career I worked as an Osteopath, for the past 15 years I have been working as a specialist Osteomyologist.



I have over 35 years of experience
You will get an accurate diagnosis of the anatomy affected and severity
My treatment methodology is unique
Treatment is safe and sensitively applied.
You can be assured of a thorough, warm, understanding and effective approach when you consult me for help.

I have treated thousands of individuals for all sorts of conditions:
Back problems Shoulder pain Frozen shoulder
Neck pain Headaches Hip Repetitive Strain Injury Knee Ankle
Elbow Post-fracture rehabilitation Arthritic joints Aching muscles
Poor circulation/lymphatic drainage

So, whether it is your low back, ankle, sciatica, strained neck, repetitive strain disorder, the knuckle on your left little finger or simply tired, tight muscles almost anywhere in your body, please call me and make an appointment, or if you simply wish to discuss a problem don't be too shy.



My treatment methods
Include deep massage and stretching of muscles and fascia. I also use spinal manipulation and the stretching of joints through very precise, passive techniques. This reduces muscle spasm, increases mobility and creates a healthier state in which damaged tissues can heal more efficiently. My methods are individually tailored to take into account the many differences between each persons’ condition and sensitivities.

I will do my utmost to:
1. Get you out of immediate pain.
2. Reshape your skeleton, joints and muscles into a more mechanically symmetrical structure.
3. Establish, with your consent, a monthly or 6 weekly maintenance regime that will prevent the re-occurence of the initial problem and also change your physical life for the better.


What the doctors cannot tell you

I pity General practitioners for the task that they often face when presented with musculo-skeletal problems. You wouldn't go to GP for a toothache or ingrown toenails, you would go to a Dentist or a Chiropodist. Our expectations are too high of our GP's. Perhaps their pills and surgery can help in certain cases but the plain fact is that manual therapy should always be the first stop in seeking help. This is borne out by American private insurance company protocols.

Knowing the things that most commonly go wrong with the body and how those syndromes have common patterns and treatment protocols is the result of many years of treating the vastly differing conditions which have been presented to me.

'Modern' medicine is seemingly oblivious to that which is obvious. Patients have problems that defy diagnosis or who have been simply mis-dignosed, sometimes many times over simply because of the primitive approach of other practitioners.

I believe that a practitioner or doctor is not worth a penny in payment unless they actually improve the patients condition or at least send them to the right specialist. Unfortunately, General Practice is restricted to generalities Their main function is to recognise the warnings signs and symptoms of life threatening disorders as well as the more obvious diseases presented to them. My training at Osteopathic college included all of the subjects that a GP would study except for the pharmaceutical. We studied detailed neuro-anatomy, radiolology, general medicine, anatomy of the entire body from microscopic to the whole. Four years of full time education plus growing up with my Fathers Naturopthic and Osteopathic influence has led to a lifetime of experience at your disposal.

The first one hour consultation includes detailed case history, examination and initial treatment of the majority of musculo-skeletal problems £120
Subsequent treatments of one hour £90
30 minute treatments £60
Consultation fee for specialist Repetitive Strain Syndromes involving the forearm, wrist and hand. Includes detailed case history, examination and initial treatment. £130

Video analysis of your posture in relation to your workstation
Video analysis of your walking and running gait and sitting posture
Video analysis of musicians technique in relation to playing and performance problems

A testimonial from a very long term patient who has visited me three times a year for the last 25 years. He is now 90 years old.

“ I have been treated by a sizeable number of osteopaths, and related practitioners, in England and the Continent. Paul Manley is by far the best of these. I first went to him over thirty years ago when I had a severe neck problem. My neck was apparently joined to my vertebrae, so that I couldn’t turn my neck without turning my whole body. Apart from the fact that this was very uncomfortable it was also dangerous when I was driving. Paul sent me for an X ray, and then treated me. After two or three treatments he freed my neck completely, and it has remained in good shape ever since. I have continued to go to Paul over the years whenever I have had a back or hip problem, and he has unfailingly corrected any problem. I have also recommended him to friends and colleagues , and they have invariably found him very helpful.
Apart from his expertise and long experience, Paul has a pleasant and approachable personality. It is always a pleasure to visit him. I cannot recommend him highly enough. ”
