The Tuckwell Osteopathic Practice was founded in 2003 by Principal Osteopath, Victoria Tuckwell. Originally located at The Rooksdown Practice in Basingstoke and then the Hackwood Surgery on Essex Road, we are now based at the Lychpit Surgery on Great Binfields Road, Basingstoke with a team that now includes associate Osteopaths.
We provide comprehensive individual care across all ages and activity backgrounds, suffering from all forms of musculoskeletal pain from back pain and neck pain, sports injuries, pregnancy pain, postural problems, trapped nerves, and peripheral joint and muscular issues. You can find out more about the range of osteopathic services we offer here.
Most of our patients are referred to us by 'word of mouth' recommendations, from their GP or their Consultant. Consultations are by appointment only. For serious (acute) cases, we will try to accommodate you with a same-day appointment.
We treat the patient as well as the problem, focusing on speeding recovery, reducing pain, increasing movement and preventing reoccurrence. Our practitioners are fully certified and registered with the General Osteopathic Council and Institute of Osteopathy.
You can call us on 07789 645 463 or book an appointment online here.
OUR TREATMENT ROOMS
"I am a new patient of Victoria's having been to see her with lower back and neck pains which were causing persistent headaches. Victoria was very thorough in determining what was the cause of these problems before providing any treatment and explained all the issues to me very carefully. After just a couple of days the headaches had gone along with the neck pain and I was feeling much better. I am continuing with follow-up treatments which I am sure will have me back to 100% fitness in a very short time. Having visited quite a few osteopaths over the years I would have no hesitation in recommending Victoria for her thorough and caring approach - she is amongst the very best that I have seen."
"Victoria has looked after me and my ailments for the last 12 years plus! My ailments are gathered from 30 years military service so my body was hugely abused. Add to that the ageing process I need all the help I can get. Victoria has an amazing knowledge and has an ability to relate to me in a way that helps my mind as well as my body especially at times when it all feels too difficult. She has a soothing and reassuring manner allowing one to feel comfortable in confiding in her as a professional medic which helps hugely in easing symptoms of the mind and the body. She has no hesitation in offering advice and information on other medical practitioners who she may feel could offer further support. Bottom line is that without Victoria I would be in a much worse place than I am, whereby I feel younger than my 71 years looking forward to even more activity post lockdown. Thank you Victoria and hopefully see you soon."
"Victoria is very professional and resolved my back issue in a very short space of time. She took the time to find out my history and fully checked my symptoms before carrying out any work. There is no pressure to book appointments when I don’t require them. Cannot recommend her highly enough."
"Victoria has a unique sixth sense with an ability to find exactly where the problem is and resolve it. Victoria is great at explaining extremely complicated technical information to ensure it is understood. The sessions are always thorough, and I feel a genuine difference and a sense of feeling uplifted. Thank you for your help Victoria!"
"Victoria is professional, empathetic and extremely good at what she does! Highly recommended!"
"I had been seeing The Tuckwell Osteopathic for a number of years and I'm always happy with the results. I've had quite a few sessions in the past , and have continued to go when I feel I need to. Highly recommended."
"I would highly recommend Sarah for her excellent treatment and friendly manner. She explained everything very clearly and gave me good advice including very clear guidance regarding exercises to help resolve my injury."
"Thorough, friendly and very professional. After a work accident destroyed my shoulder resulting in some 11 hours of reconstructive surgery, I entered the long recovery consisting of physiotherapy, ice and rest. However the referred pain in the rest of the arm and scapular needed alternative treatment and I was recommended to try Basingstoke Osteopathy. I found Victoria's approach to be thorough, friendly and very professional. I have and indeed continue to benefit from her program of treatments which my surgeon has seen a marked improvement in my overall recovery. I would have no hesitation in telling people to make and appointment and see how it can work for them."
"Nothing but kind words to say. Victoria Tuckwell had been working on my husbands shoulder following his operation, He had nothing but kind words to say about Victoria and that she had made such a difference to his recovery and would sing Victoria's praises every time he saw her."Made an appointment and have never looked back. I have been suffering for 4 years with a prolapsed disc after a snowboarding accident in 2008 and was reluctant to try an Osteopath as I had tried so many treatments in the past that had made some or no difference. So I thought i'd bite the Bullet and made an appointment and have never looked back, Victoria has magic hands and the improvement after just one session was incredible and I finally had my smile back on my face. Victoria taught me so much about my body that I had not heard before and made it easier to understand my pain and with regular treatments I am going from strength to strength and continues to improve with on going treatment, I would highly recommend Victoria to my friends or family in the future." "
"She has a lovely manner, vast knowledge and excellent technique. My doctor recommended me to Victoria following several weeks of intense back and leg pain caused by sciatica. She has a lovely manner, vast knowledge and excellent technique. I always left feeling so much better having being treated professionally and with the advice on what to do next. I would strongly recommend Victoria to anyone requiring the services of an osteopath."
"It is my pleasure to write on your superb professional skill. I suffer from back & neck pain due to a condition called ankylosing spondylitis. For over two years, I have taken various medications & Physiotherapy without much improvement. My GP recommended seeing their osteopath (Victoria). I wish I had seen her earlier. She managed my back pain in an excellent way, my mobility significantly improved and further more I have stopped taking medication. I am very grateful to her management. To all back pain or arthritis sufferers, I recommend attending the Rooksdown Osteopathic Practice to see Victoria Tuckwell the Osteopath because you will see the difference."
"I have been visiting Victoria for about 5 years now. Without Victoria, I would not be able to do my work, as it is so physically demanding on my back. Before finding Victoria, I was in agony with my back and neck due to my previous job, which was hod carrying. I had seen four other practitioners before finding Victoria, which were unsuccessful in fixing me; I had even tried acupuncture, which was nowhere near as effective as Victoria."
"A friend recommended Victoria to me & it was the best recommendation given! Victoria is very professional, knows her stuff & has been the best Osteopath that I have ever been to!!! As a fitness instructor, my injury stopped me doing my job for 8 weeks, over a period of time Victoria sorted my injury & it has never come back! I would highly recommend her to anybody and everybody! Many thanks Victoria – always appreciated!"
