Dore Health Ltd have helped our family multiple times over the past 8 years and I couldn’t recommend more highly
– Mandy Davies, Client
I was recommended Carlo by a family friend after I told him I was struggling to perform basic movements without feeling severe lower backpain. He was able to diagnose me in 15 mins and start the process of helping relieve the pain. The suggested exercises and tips he gave were easy to understand and helped massively! I highly recommend Carlo. Thank you!
– Alleena Ullakumar, Client
Been putting up with the pain and discomfort for months (I’m a bloke) but after being bullied by my wife I went to see Carlo today. It feels great to finally be able to look forwards to sorting my shoulder out. Carlo was very thorough and professional but also very approachable. His diagnosis made perfect sense and I feel I have made a huge step back to normality. Highly recommended.
– Gavin Purvis, Client
I have been seeing Carlo for several sessions now and could not thank him enough. He gave me a lot of advice over lockdown and during my sessions.
Due to back pains and strains, I wasn’t able to walk without pain killers when I started seeing him. Now I’m a lot happier and feel relaxed. He is a fantastic osteopath, one of the best!

In-between clients the studio, all equipment and removable coverings are fully cleaned. Where possible the room is ventilated by leaving the doors & windows open.
Treatment is hands-on and involves skilled manipulation of the spine and joints, and massage of soft tissues.
I will explain what I am doing and will always ask your permission to treat you (known as consent). You can ask questions at any time, if you are unsure of what you have been told or if you have any concerns.’
How it Works
Step 1: Initial Appointment
I will take a detailed case history to assess your current health, other medical care you are receiving or medication you are taking, and record this in your case notes. The information you provide will be confidential.
Step 2: Examination
An examination will then be undertaken of your posture and you will be asked to actively undertake some simple movements in order to assess freedom and range of movement.
Removal of some clothing will aid the examination. However do not be concerned as I will only ask you to undress to a level that you are comfortable with and you will have privacy. If you wish, you can ask a friend or relative to accompany you during treatment.
Further orthopaedic , neurological or circulatory tests may be required before leading to diagnosis and treatment.
Following examination I will give you a clear explanation of what I have found (my diagnosis), and discuss a treatment plan that is suitable for you, which may include lifestyle changes. I will explain the benefits from treatment I am recommending.
Step 3: Post Treatment
Due to the physical nature of the treatment, it is not unusual to sometimes feel sore or stiff in the first 24–48 hours after treatment. I will explain any likely reactions that you could expect. If you have any concerns, it is important to contact me and ask my advice.
It may require more than one visit before your problem is resolved. I will review your progress at each subsequent visit and seek your consent to any changes to your treatment plan.
I will also prescribe exercises and stretches to aid your. recovery as appropriate

The Molesey Clinic
The Molesey Clinic is in my family home in Nightingale Road, West Molesey. I have a purpose built practice at the end of the garden; it is a small practice and I aim to offer a friendly and personal service to all my patients.
It also has the advantage as the site for my wife’s one to one Pilates classes using the latest Reformer equipment giving tuition from beginners to advanced. Pilates is an exercise form widely recommended for postural strengthening and rehabilitation and as a team, we have had great success in ‘turning the corner’ for our patients’ musculoskeletal problems.
