Helping you get out of pain and back to living your life
with osteopathic skills, knowledge and experience
April 2023: You do not need to wear a mask in clinic anymore. If you are vulnerable, or about to travel abroad you are welcome to continue wearing a mask. I will be happy to wear one too, please just ask. I am still following hygiene protocols such as wiping down the bed and pillows between patients. Apart from that, work feels normal again, although I have noticed people are more likely to reschedule if they feel unwell, and I am grateful for their consideration.
If you have any questions please feel free to call on the above numbers. In the meantime, have a look around the website to learn about osteopathy and how I can help you.
What do osteopaths treat?
People come to see me with injuries that have happened while going about their normal daily life (lifting things at work, cleaning the house, playing with the children), or problems that have been building up over a period of time (feeling stiff in the morning, aching while at work, pain during sports).
Who goes to see an osteopath?
Anyone who wants to get back to work, rest or play!
I often treat:
- tradesmen, who need to be fit again for the demands of a physical job
- office workers with back or neck pain when sitting at their desks
- older people who just want to enjoy their retirement without pain or stiffness getting in the way
- sports people planning for their next race or game
- busy parents trying to keep the house & garden tidy, keep the kids happy and keep their sanity!
My youngest patient was 5 days old and my oldest was in her nineties.
What’s it like?
A patient (Jennie) wrote: “Its a very relaxed environment. He explains diagnosis and treatment clearly and I felt very comfortable in the way he treated me. The treatment itself was excellent. In two sessions (and using the exercises Daniel taught me), I went from not being able to move at all, to full movement.”
What do people want from an osteopath?
Some people want immediate treatment and pain relief so they can get back to work or sport fast. Others are looking for a comprehensive assessment and advice so they can understand their problem better, and how to manage it by themselves.
Osteopathy is a great approach because it uses a range of techniques to calm down pain at the injured tissue, but also takes a more holistic view of your biomechanics. By analysing your movements and feeling your muscles, joints and other tissues, I build an understanding of where the problem lies and how to treat it.
“Thank you for seeing me so quickly and treating my lower back. It felt better as I left the room and throughout the day I kept carrying out the exercises you had suggested. By the evening it felt a great deal better and I worked yesterday with minimal issues. Today it feels as good as new! ” Michael
Why do I do it?
Its great to help people out of pain, I love it when people come back and say “it feels so much better”. And I really enjoy sharing my excitement and fascination with the human body and how it works.
I have a wide experience but I don’t claim to have an answer for everything: There is always more to learn and it is a privilege to work with so many interesting patients.
