Matt graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in London, with distinction, after leaving a career in the travel industry behind.
His experience of the effects of stress, commuting and a sedentary lifestyle means he can relate to a wide range of problems people may experience in their back, neck, shoulders and the rest of their body.
Matt is a keen runner and knows the positive impacts of exercise, as well as some of the pitfalls of overdoing it and can help with many injuries, aches and pains gained from sport and exercise.
Wherever your current problem may be, Matt will spend time assessing how your general posture and lifestyle may be contributing to any local muscular or joint problems and devise a tailored treatment plan for you.
Jack qualified with a Masters degree in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council. Jack undertakes a structural approach to his work, meaning treatments often consist of “hands-on” techniques. He has a keen interest in rehabilitation and encourages patients to aid their own recovery, by providing the knowledge and tools they need, such as appropriate exercises to do at home that fit in with the patient’s lifestyle.
Jack has experience treating people of all ages with varying conditions. He has a keen interest in working with sports and exercise injuries, as he has previously played Basketball at a national level, so can personally relate to some of the common injuries that can occur.
