Hugo uses 3D Functional movement developed by the Gray Institute of Functional Exercise Therapy and combines this with Osteopathy treatment to create a highly effective therapeutic programme for you. It enhances the healing process, reduces pain quickly, increases mobility and helps you maintain and improve your own musculoskeletal health. He treats at his own practice conveniently located between central Kingston and Surbiton just 10 mins walk from both train stations in KT1. There is ample parking too.
Practice Approach to Covid 19
As an Osteopath I remain cautious in all treatment settings and as an essential healthcare provider I continue to offer Face to face appointments for ALL patients whether they are in pain, unable to function normally or in need of preventative treatment.
The following precautions remain in place at this practice:-
- Hugo Firth, the Osteopath, has now received all three of his Covid -19 Vaccinations
- Face masks must be worn by both patient and Osteopath during the entire appointment.
- Patients must not have any symptoms nor have been in contact with anyone who has symptoms over the last 7 days.
- Patients will receive a Covid Declaration form to complete before the appointment. This must be completed before the appointment.
- Appointments will be spaced out by 15 mins to allow for clinic disinfecting and room airing time between patients. It also ensures that there is no more than 1 patient in the waiting room at any one time.
Remote Tele/Video Consultations – remain available
If you do not feel comfortable with a face to face treatment or are self isolating at this time or you are not in pain but are experiencing joint and/or muscle stiffness then a remote video assessment, advice and specific therapeutic exercises could really help you. These can be booked online here.
Personal videos for exercises
Hugo will video you doing your unique functional exercises (with your permission) so you have a reference after you have left the clinic. You will also have access to his YouTube channel of therapeutic exercises where you will find a range of exercises that you can use in the future.
Muscle and Joint Pain
Wherever you have pain, Hugo will always find the cause the of the pain as well as treating the muscle and joint pain itself. It may be in a different are of the body. Neck pain can come from the lower back or even the foot. He takes the time to explain why the pain is occurring. Then through a combination of hands on treatment and specific functional exercises he will help you to reduce the pain and give you the means to address the cause and reduce the risk of it happening again. Would like to know more about Back pain or Frozen shoulder?
As a sports injury rehab specialist, Hugo will analyse your gait, foot biomechanics, posture and spine as well as the injured tissue itself to find the root cause of the injury if it is a recurring injury or healing very slowly. Recurring injuries such as hamstring strains, achilles tendonitis, plantafascitis, shin splints, ankle sprains, calf strains, runners knee, tennis and golfers elbow, shoulder and knee pain, back pain, sciatica – all benefit from this approach.
Post Surgery or Trauma Rehab?
If it is a trauma or post surgery rehab he makes sure that joints and muscles above and below the site of injury are working optimally to enhance the healing process. He then gives his patients the latest advice and help on how to manage the injury and improve the rate of healing.
He provides really effective rehab exercise programmes tailored to their sport that help his patients regain proprioception and muscles strength. So they are ready to return to their activity with less chance of re-injury.
Highly recommend Hugo Firth to fix those niggles, aches and pains. His rehab programmeCormacCyclist and Businessman

Hugo's personal and tailored approach really help sort my back out!
Hugo was so knowledgeable and professional, it was refreshing! He also provided advice and exercises to help stop it recurring.
5/5 - highly recommended
Hugo treated me when I was in excruciating pain following a nerve issue and at a time when other professionals told me to wait for the acute pain to subside before I could have treatment.... After just two appointments with Hugo, the pain was gone almost completely. A few more sessions later and I am now pain free!Aurelie LIT professional
