Neil is a registered osteopath with a particular interest in human movement and bio-mechanics. He is very experienced in treating acute and chronic pain conditions, using a mixture of traditional osteopathy, functional movement and medical acupuncture.
Osteopathy is a primary healthcare discipline that uses medical diagnosis and treatment to treat musculoskeletal injury and dysfunction.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN A SESSION:
Neil strongly believes that treating pain and dysfunction requires a whole body approach. Sessions combine traditional osteopathy techniques, functional movement patterns and medical acupuncture. Neil will take the time to explore the root causes of your pain and, together with you, will help to restore function and pain free movement.
Neil will always aim to empower the patient to understand and realise their own movement potential and ability, and encourage you to continue to enjoy movement away from the clinic.
I started treatment with Neil due to pain I was having in my hips and knees for 2 years during any mild activity. I had been receiving treatment from another osteopath for 3 months with no improvement. Neil’s approach was very different. He was concerned with the way I moved and how my body was functioning. The sessions were not only on the treatment couch but consisted of exercises that would challenge my body to move in different ways and function better. After the first session, and with home exercises to do, my pain dropped dramatically. After 3 sessions with Neil I am now pain free and working out daily. I am so happy with the transformation and I feel like my active self again. Sharareh Arazzadeh.
I was having trouble with basic movements such as running, squats and push ups and was not confident in putting any load or stress through either my wrist or my ankle. Neil was recommended to me and in three sessions, his treatment drastically increased the mobility in both my ankle and wrist and greatly reduced the level of discomfort. As a result, I’ve been able to return to the gym and the sports I was playing prior to the injuries and I continue to improve by putting into practice the movement patterns Neil has taught me.
