Ben is a qualified and registered osteopath recognised by the governing body of the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). He has studied full-time for four years gaining his Naturopathic and Osteopathic Diplomas.
Ben has studied the extended 5 year programme which involves special study modules such as sports medicine, animal osteopathy and cranial osteopathy. He also undertook a special interest research project which examined the effects of osteopathic treatment and functional core stability exercises on body sway in low back pain patients. The extended 5 year programme gave Ben a Bachelor of Osteopathic Medicine (B Ost Med) of which there are only a handful in the country.
The service Ben provides is quite different than that of a normal osteopath. He has a long history of sporting interests and has worked closely with sports teams and individuals as both a sports therapist and an osteopath. The patient care he provides will also differ because he provides comprehensive rehabilitation advice which is conducive to improving a patient’s complaint.
Much of his current practice is in dealing with sports injuries. For example, he supports a mixed martial arts gym, who are regarded as the top UK team and respected world wide, with a number of patients competing at national and international levels.
His experience includes:
Working within the NHS
Working in a specialist spinal clinic
Studying sports injuries courses and a specialist research project on core stability and functional exercise
Working with olympic and international athletes from many different disciplines within the martial arts arena
He designs exercise and rehabilitation programmes for his patients together with a multidisciplinary team of therapists, bringing you a superior level of treatment and expertise
He lectures to companies such as Cadbury Schweppes and the Government Driving Agency on topics such as safety at work, manual handling and postural issues.
