I have just signed up to an exciting new national osteopathy research project to find out more about how patients respond to osteopathic treatment. The project is being run by the National Council for Osteopathic Research who will analyse anonymised questionnaire data from osteopathy patients throughout the UK. Findings will be shared throughout the profession to help improve osteopathic treatment. Continue reading
I hate running. I don’t see the point. Hoarse throat, sweaty, out-of-breath, aching all over – why would you want to? Well, that’s what I used to think. Over the past month however, I have become a complete convert. Continue reading
People often come to see me for back pain or neck pain pain caused by ‘sleeping a bit funny’ or sleeping on a different mattress. Others with pre-existing problems feel they can’t get comfortable in bed, or their pain is worse on waking in the morning.

I hear stories everyday – stories of people’s pain, their health and glimpses into their lives. As an osteopath, people tell me about themselves (in confidence of course), and I feel incredibly privileged to listen. People’s stories are important, and will usually inform to some extent the type of osteopathic treatment I give them. Continue reading
Many of my osteopathy patients bring in x-rays or MRIs showing ‘wear and tear’ or ‘degenerative changes’ in one or more of their joints. Usually this means they have osteoarthritis.
