I have been receiving treatment from Christoph for the last 6 months, due to a painful sciatic nerve issue, which had been bothering me for over a year before I sought help and was getting too much. Christoph understood the problem and has helped me transform from a daily pain struggle, to a flexible, strong and pain free condition. I highly recommend his services. More...

I am very grateful for having had my therapies with Dr. Christoph.I am originally from Venezuela and I am used to having my doctor's appointments and consultations feeling that doctors familiarise with your individual case; which when arriving to London I always felt as being part of a statistics, and doctors trying to see me as fast as possible and not actually caring about my full story. All this until Dr. Christoph, he is absolutely outstanding, sessions are done with plenty of time, he listens to you as a patient and treats you as a human, not as a number. He is not only an excellent Doctor, but an amazing human. The best you can get, and I highly recommend him for anyone seeking help for their musculoskeletal conditions to get the right assessment and treatment.Best in all London! More...

Best treatment, diagnosis, and medical advise you can get. Dr. Christoph it's is simply an outstanding professional and amazing human. I went to see him after struggling with severe neck and arm pain, to a point where the numbness didn't allow me feel my arm. After several visits to the GP, physiotherapy, and a neurologist, it was Dr. Christoph who helped me with my diagnosis, exercises, and sessions. More...

My second visit to Christoph and yet again I’m so impressed by his treatment and his processes. The results for me are completely incredible. He managed to get rid of excruciating pain in my shoulder in no time at all - amazing! The aftercare is also brilliant - lots of exercises to do in between visits. More...

I first saw Christoph early this year (2019) and now visit as and when required, either for follow up treatments or as recently if I suffer from a new injury. Pain in my knees had led me to believe that I was suffering from overuse and that I could not run again. Christoph very quickly dissipated this idea and assured me that strength and stretch exercises of the knees and knee-related areas would allow me to run again. Within a short time I was able to get back ‘on the road’. Further issues (hamstring, posture, neck…) have came up since and Christoph again quickly identified the core of the problems and recommended the appropriate exercises, which I am duly following as they do work. What I much value in each consultation is that not only is Christoph very competent in his interpretation and treatment of injuries but he also - importantly - listens to his patient’s specific problems and has a calm reassuring way to deal with his patients, explaining the causes of the injury, suggesting customised treatments, inspiring confidence all the while. His follow up emails detailing the home exercises to be done are also a great reminder of what was achieved in each session.Highly recommended. More...

I came to Christoph initially with persistent neck pain and tension headaches and then later with a sciatica flare up due to a herniated disc. He used a combination of osteopathy, massage and acupuncture at each session to treat my issues with great skill and kindness. I experienced a huge improvement right from the first session. He engages you in all aspects of the treatment from explaining the musculoskeletal causes behind the problem you are presenting to how you will benefit from the treatment session and the exercises he demonstrates to be done at home. He followed up each session with an email to ask if I had any questions on the session and to remind me of how to perform the exercises. Christoph embodies consummate professional and therapeutic skills – he makes you feel as if you are the only client and approaches your condition as if it is the most interesting problem he has to resolve that day – even though he has probably seen many neck and back problems in his practice!. I would unreservedly recommend him. More...

I was very lucky that Christoph was participating in the same beach volleyball tournament as me when I sprained my ankle mid-game. He quickly and calmly assessed the injury and expertly taped my foot, which gave me the reassurance and support needed to be able to resume play and not forfeit the competition. Thank you! More...

I had chronic pain due relating to my hip rotator muscles, erector spinal lumbar muscles and sacro illiac joint - and couldn't sit down for longer than 3 minutes. Then a friend recommended Christoph to me. The results were amazing. He relieved the problem and guided me on the best strategies for improving my overall health which includes stretches and exercises. Christoph is a cut above other Osteopaths, Chiropractors and Physiotherapists (I have been to many) and therefore I would highly recommend him. More...

Outstanding service - I couldn't have asked for better treatment. I saw Christoph twice for painful back spasms following a lower back injury. Christoph fitted me in at short notice, quickly identified the problem and treated me with a combination of techniques including acupuncture. Following treatment I had no further back spasms, my back felt so much more mobile and I am now well on the way to recovery. I really appreciated that after each appointment Christoph took the time to check on my progress and send written details of exercises and stretches.Christoph is clearly a very knowledgeable, talented and skilful practitioner who definitely has an intuitive 'magic' touch. He also has a friendly, calm and professional manner which inspires confidence. More...

Dr Christoph is the first Osteopath I have worked with. I have a long running injury as a runner. He was recommended to be my another runner. Christoph is warm, friendly, patient and very accomodating; not to mention funny too. He makes you feel relaxed and works on a personalised basis. I cannot thank him enough for the support and treatment he has offered me so far. I have a long term injury (IT Band) and I know I will be a regular customer. I have already recommended him to a running friend of mine already. More...

I was recommended Christoph by a friend and I've been seeing him as needed for a year or so now. By far the best Osteopath in the area, not just in terms of his treatment which is exceptional and always immediately effective but his follow-up and aftercare is fantastic as well, offering advice exercises and written instructions via mail as I had a lot of homework to do! Love the ability to book online, the last appointment I made was while still sitting in the gym having "tweaked" my back (again!). In a nutshell I can't recommend highly enough More...

26 April 2019

I would recommend Christoph to all people who suffer from sports injuries. Always calm and professional, he knows how keen sport people are to go back in shape and get back to practicing as soon as they can. His advices will always keep that in mind. He helped me with my shoulder and calf issue and not only the treatments were always effective but the aftercare was great, gave me many exercises and was always there to answer my questions!

Christoph has helped me address cycling-related muscle injuries that I’d been suffering with for a while. I’d even been to other cycle physio specialists who hadn’t solved it but Christoph immediately diagnosed the root cause of the issue. Regular sessions, including acupuncture have really helped and he has helped me implement a stretching routine to prevent further injury. Highly recommend. More...

I have been seeing Dr Christoph Datler for over 1 year. I play football and like to keep myself fit, but find I get injured a lot.

I found Christoph while visiting London and needing some treatment for a pulled patella tendon injury. I was staying near Blackheath so went along to see Christoph. The treatment was excellent, this was my first visit to an Osteopath but I have experienced many sports doctors, physios and masseurs previously. Christoph is extremely friendly but always professional. He quickly diagnosed where the tightness was in my body that was causing the referred knee pain. He then did some excellent work to release that tightness, also had some acupuncture treatment and he showed me some follow up stretches. If I lived in London I would go regularly without doubt. I have no hesitation to refer Christop, he has excellent knowledge and is a charming person as well. More...

20 July 2018

I am so happy I have found Christoph. My right leg is slightly shorter than my left, but enough to cause problems in my hips and lower back. Also tension in my shoulders and back from stress and desk working have started making standing for more than half an hour uncomfortable. I'm 30 years old and shouldn't be feeling like I'm 80! So I thought I would finally invest in myself, seeing as you only have 1 body. I have been for 2 sessions so far and look forward to continuing my treatment there. Christoph is such a lovely person too, and I feel very comfortable with him treating me. His knowledgeand holistic approach are excellent and he is just a lovely, genuine guy who understand what each individual needs. More...

20 July 2018

I went to see Christoph after I became injured when playing volleyball. I had not played for a number of years, but decided it was time to go back to the courts after such a long time. However, after a few weeks of training, I ended up with some severe nerve damage which was causing numbness on quite a few parts of my body, but mainly on my left foot and leg. I also had neck pain and I seemed to have lost some strength on my right arm due to a compressed nerve, causing me a lot of discomfort. Since my first session with Christoph, he was able to identify the origin of all my problems, and discussed with me the best treatment for it all. He managed to alleviate the problems far quicker than I thought and soon I was able to start playing again. I have recommended him to a couple of friends who were also very happy with their treatments. Christoph is very friendly, professional and someone you can definitely trust if you are looking to improve any musculoskeletal conditions. More...

was recommended Christoph by a fellow mum after I started experiencing back pain. Having never been to an osteopath before I didn't know what to expect, but it's worked wonders! !

I will definitely be back! More...

I can't praise Christoph highly enough. He is absolutely brilliant.I contacted him about 3 months after breaking both of my wrists and having major surgery on one of them. I had been attending Hand Therapy sessions via the NHS but I wanted to speed up the recovery and reduce the pain that I was experiencing. Christoph has used osteopathy, and acupuncture and has advised on exercises. His treatments have helped me massively. I only wish that I had seen him at an earlier point in my recovery. More...

I had a torn calf muscle due to jogging. I visited Christoph only twice and he sorted it out for me by guiding me through various excercises and muscle manipulation. Christoph is very knowledgeable, patient, experienced and generally has a very nice manor. He also helped me with excercises for my sciatic nerve which occasionally irritates me from a previous injury. He looks at your whole structure and not just what you have specifically gone to see him for. I would definitely recommend him 100%. More...

Chris is an amazing professional and has helped me with a number of issues by applying different techniques. He is very good in finding the root cause of problems and actually treating them to the point you feel 100% again (unlike some doctors that seem they don't really want to heal you). Highly recommend!

20 July 2018

When I went to see Christoph at the Blackheath Sports Clinic, I had been in a great deal of pain for over 2 months and a number visits to different physios and an osteopath had failed to relieve the pain and had yielded a variety of different diagnoses. Christoph's initial examination was systematic and considered and he carefully explained his conclusions and the proposed treatment. Although the recovery took time I could feel progress after each visit and the rehab exercises were simple and effective. He is also very thorough and will seek to help resolve the source of the problem - once my back/ hip had stabilised and was improving he turned his attention to the slight limp from knee ligament damage (which had caused the problem). I have been looking for a long time for someone like Christoph to help me with injury problems and I wholeheartedly recommend his services. More...

Top of the top, highly recommend Christoph. I went to see Christoph as I had a really painful lower back post babies. Christoph took the time to explain the problem and with muscle manipulation. pilates exercises and acupuncture has helped me great deal. I recently went back as I start having a strong pain in the buttocks and again Christoph helped to alleviate the pain.

I went to Christoph initially for treatment on my lower back which had spasmed a few days earlier. I’ve had a 2 further sessions with him during which he manipulated me but also educated me with regard to my core, posture, daily exercises to strengthen back, glutes etc and also have had acupuncture on my ever niggling tennis elbow. I feel that in 3 sessions with Christoph he has given me more valuable treatment and information than I could have ever received in 3 months of Physio/treatment elsewhere. All this is backed up with very detailed notes he emails post session. I would definitely recommend him. More...

What is also impressive, he keeps detailed notes and refers to them when checking the progress during the treatment so the patient could acknowledge the improvements also. Great place, he works magic! More...

Top of the top, highly recommend Christoph. I went to see Christoph as I had a really painful lower back post babies. Christoph took the time to explain the problem and with muscle manipulation. pilates exercises and acupuncture has helped me great deal. I recently went back as I start having a strong pain in the buttocks and again Christoph helped to alleviate the pain. I like that Chistoph really takes his time to explain the cause of the problem and to help me feel better. He is very relaxed, patient and would recommend him to anyone whom need osteopathic care.

When I went to see Christoph at the Blackheath Sports Clinic, I had been in a great deal of pain for over 2 months and a number visits to different physios and an osteopath had failed to relieve the pain and had yielded a variety of different diagnoses. Christoph's initial examination was systematic and considered and he carefully explained his conclusions and the proposed treatment. Although the recovery took time I could feel progress after each visit and the rehab exercises were simple and effective. He is also very thorough and will seek to help resolve the source of the problem - once my back/ hip had stabilised and was improving he turned his attention to the slight limp from knee ligament damage (which had caused the problem). I have been looking for a long time for someone like Christoph to help me with injury problems and I wholeheartedly recommend his services. More...

I work as a professional dancer and have been going to the clinic over the last year and a half for remedial treatment of injuries as well as body maintenance work. Dr. Datler has been a saving grace through some of my most rigorous jobs and helped sort back pain, displaced rib and other injuries that have arisen in my line of work. I'd highly recommend his practice to other dance professionals and anyone else seeking help with sports related aches and pains. More...

Things to look for in a practitioner when you have back pain:1) They take a detailed history2) They do a though assessment of your posture3) They tell you what is wrong and what muscle groups are affected4) They tell you of exercises to alleviate the problems and show you how to do them5) They treat you with muti-disciplines, Osteopathy, acupuncture and massageChristoph did all these things in a really nice, non judgmental way. I have been having back pain on and off for the last 6 years and Christoph is one of the best I have seen and I have seen a lot of practictioners. Highly recommend. More...

I have been struggling with intense lower back pain for the past couple of months after lifting heavy weights in the gym. One of my work-out colleagues recommended Dr Christoph Datler from Blackheath Sports Clinic and I could book an appoint for the same week . I was really impressed by the detailed examination of all the joints in my spine and assessment of my overall posture and core stability. After explaining of what I had injured, he used spinal manipulations to get my spine moving again and effective stretches to loosen the tight muscles in my lower back and hip. Already after the first session, I felt a significant improvement, and after another two sessions and doing some home exercises Christoph had prescribed, I was back to my usual active self again. I can’t recommend him highly enough! More...

Q&A

I am passionate about understanding how your body works, and what treatment you really need - and this challenge is also what I love about being a practitioner. Combining my academic knowledge and professional expertise and experience, I am to get you back to doing what matters to you at your personal best in no time.

During my career as an active sportsman, I have experienced first-hand what how pain and injuries can prevent you from doing what you love. Competing in Beach Volleyball on the English National Tour, I have spent hours receiving treatment and exercising to recover from injuries: Despite a disc injury and a complicated fracture of my ankle, I enjoy competing in sports and even won tournaments of English National Beach Volleyball Masters in 2015 and 2016 and am consistently ranked in the TOP 3 of the English National Championship.
With this background, I am passionate about helping people to recover from pains and injuries and achieve what they want in their lives - whether that's simply enjoying life, staying fit and active, recovering from injury or improving your performance. You don't need to be an athlete to benefit from my treatment approach. But if you are, you can rest assured that I will understand exactly what strains are placed on your body during your specific sport.

Combining my personal background and extensive expertise in treating painful conditions and injuries, gives me a clear understanding of what it takes to get you better and back to enjoying your life or sports. My passion is to understand what treatment your body needs to recover, and my priority is to get you back to doing what matters to you - pain free and at your personal best!

Services

Osteopaths effectively treat musculoskeletal pains (joints, muscles, tendons, fascia, nerves). Treatment involves advanced manual techniques such as spinal manipulations and targeted articulations.

Advanced massage techniques effectively treat imbalances (e.g. scar tissue, adhesions, stiffness, tightness, tension) in your soft tissues, i.e. muscles, tendons, fascia and connective tissue.

Pilates uses dynamic bodyweight exercises to realign the body, correct postural and muscular imbalances while stabilising the spine and via emphasis on core strength - an ideal whole body workout!

Our experienced osteopaths use intramuscular needling to effectively treat musculoskeletal pains, aches and injuries as well as to decrease excess muscle tension and relieve general stress.

Our osteopaths are here to help with acute injuries or chronic problems: An accurate diagnosis, expert treatment and rehabilitation will guarantee the best outcome and prevent repeated injury.

The skilled application of tape supports your joints, ligaments, tendon insertions and offloads muscles. It helps injury prevention, fast recovery and pain relief while allowing an active lifestyle.

Mindfulness is a purposeful and meaningful way of paying attention to your present life. It will help you tune back into your body and mind in a curious non-judgemental way to find a new balance.
