Introduction to the Maxwell Clinic


What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is one of the main treatments for various muscle and joint conditions, like back pain.

Osteopathy is a method of assessing, treating and preventing a wide range of problems associated with muscles and joints. Osteopaths use a combination of movement, deep tissue massage and manipulation of a person’s muscles and joints to improve function, relieve pain and aid recovery.

Treatment is not the same for everyone but tailored specifically for the individual.

The clicking or popping sounds we hear from your joints can feel wonderful for some people but for others they don’t like it. You are seeing an osteopath to relax, feel and move better. We maintain good communication with our patients. We have lots of other ways of helping your muscles move and unwind. You do not have to have your back clicked.

Osteopathy does not involve any medication, injections or operations.

Our osteopaths

Andrew Maxwell

Mr Andrew Maxwell, BSc hons 1997.
Registered osteopath no.3178

Andrew qualified in 1997 and has worked at this practice, formally the Millhouse Osteopathic Practice, as an associate to Kim Millhouse. Andrew took ownership of the clinic in 2006.

“I have been an osteopath for many years and have lots of experience. I have more enthusiasm and energy than ever.

“I combine my clinical experience with a study of contemporary knowledge* that is now so amazingly accessible.

“I explain things to patients in normal language to take away any fear and confusion that may surround their symptoms.

“What I like most is guiding patients way beyond recovery, to really improving their health, fitness and wellness.

“I’m married, have three grown up children. My hobbies and interests include many active things- racketball, cricket, cycling, skiing and yoga. But I love to put my feet up too, being with family, watching some netflix and movies or totally chilling out in southern Spain.”

*evidence based research in the fields of musculoskeletal medicine, pain science, health and fitness

“I have worked in various clinics including in Australia. I now treat a large range of patients from babies to elderly. Since a young age, I have been involved in various sports activities, including playing football for Tottenham Hotspur Ladies. I still play for a local football team.

“I teach level 3 and 4 sports massage diploma and undergraduate courses and at university where my in-depth knowledge of anatomy and ability to talk to large groups is put to good use.

“I can treat patients using various traditional manual osteopathic techniques, like deep tissue massage, joint mobilisation and manipulation”

In addition to these traditional treatment methods Paige’s other clinical skills include:

  • Cranial osteopathy
  • Dry needling /medical acupuncture
  • Sports taping
  • The Epley manoeuvre or repositioning manoeuvre

All Osteopaths undertake a 4 year clinical BSc honours degree studying anatomy, musculoskeletal conditions and osteopathic techniques. We have good clinical understanding, diagnostic and treatment abilities.

Osteopathy is a protected title, this means you cannot call yourself an osteopath unless you have completed and passed the required study and maintained the continued study, and you are a member of the General Osteopathic Council.

The title “osteopath” is protected under The Osteopaths Act 1993 and in the UK all osteopaths must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), which promotes effective treatments and patient safety by setting, maintaining and developing high standards of osteopathic practice and conduct. Osteopaths at the Maxwell Clinic are all registered.
