Osteopathy is a manual therapy that involves diagnosis and treatment of joints, muscles, ligaments and surrounding structures. Any kind of joint ache, pain or stiffness whether in the back, neck, armsor legs can be an indication that there are underlying joint and muscles strains and these, left untreated can upset your general health. Osteopaths may use touch, physical manipulation, stretching, massage and exercises to help reduce pain and restore movement.
I have been a patient for several years and have never had any hesitation in recommending the physiotherapists at The Tonbridge Clinic to any fellow sufferers. They provide a professional and, for me,successful physiotherapist service which is extremely well supported by pleasant and efficient reception and administration personnel.
I first became interested in osteopathy when I was a child after having osteopathic treatment for knee pain. I was fascinated with how the osteopath relieved the pain with only two or three treatmentsand without even working on my knee. He explained that the problem was originating from my back. This fascination never wore off and so in 1996 I started a four year full time course at The Maidstone College of Osteopathy.

After four years as a tutor in the school clinic and lecturing both in the UK and in Europe he became the Head of the ESO Teaching clinic in 2003.
