About me

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.
