Joe has a keen interest in health and fitness. After suffering with hip pain from running he visited an Osteopath. The assessment, analysis and treatment approach inspired him to go back to university and retrain as an Osteopath. There he learnt that the body is made up of multiple systems that all work together, a pain or dysfunction in one of these will have a knock-on effect to the others. Joe’s passion for the way the body works and problem solving allows him to get to the root cause of the issue in order to effectively treat the source and not just the current symptoms.
He graduated with a Bachelors of Osteopathy honours degree from the College of Osteopaths and holds a diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy. Joe is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy
Joe believes that its important to get to know the patient and where they are coming from so that he can tailor the approach for treatment to each person, from athletes to the less active amongst us. He has a special interest in low back pain as it can have such a big impact on people of all ages and walks of life and is one of the leading causes of disability in the world.
Joe uses a wide range of Osteopathic techniques including soft tissue mobilisation, joint articulations, and manipulations, to help reduce the pain and improve mobility and function. He will also provide exercises to help stretch and strengthen specific areas of the body, and give advice to assist with recovery and help prevent future reoccurrences.
