Why is it some get better quickly, while others, with similar conditions, take much longer to become pain-free?
As a lifelong healthcare professional, I was strongly drawn to osteopathy because its focus is on the patient as a person – not just a ‘back or shoulder problem’. This whole person approach, I believe, is the key to helping people get better quickly.
I am extremely passionate about enabling my patients to achieve health through this holistic approach.
The question of what it is that helps some people recover more quickly than others has set me on a fascinating journey to research and discover pain treatment methods which really work. My years of hands-on practice and clinical experience have also given me insight into how best to achieve results for my patients.
Find your way out of pain…
Countless clever marketing campaigns show us whizzy new treatment options for muscle and joint pain. But the important questions to ask are: do they work? Are they effective in treating the cause or simply relieving symptoms? And what is the best option for me?
I can help guide you through these questions.
My principles when treating my patients:
i) I root out the individual causes of the person’s pain and deliver personalised, practical and effective treatment.
ii) My patients leave with a better understanding of their pain and a clear strategy for tackling pain out of clinic. After all, there are 23 more hours in the day aside from your session with me. It’s important you have tools at the ready!
Mind and body working together…
I wholeheartedly believe that the body cannot be treated in isolation without consideration for the mind. Much of my treatment is aimed not only at the painful area, but also the mind, the brain and the nervous system because they are inextricably linked. You can read more about that in my blog.
You can trust me to keep your long term health and pain-free living as the top priorities in any treatment I give.
