Improving Patient Care At The Practice

4th Jul 2013

Here at Broomfield Osteopathic Clinic I continue to work really hard to help my patients.  I believe in offering the client professional care alongside lasting results.  Now after 4 year’s working within the community as an Osteopath I am bringing Pilates rehabilitation into the heart of my business.

I really believe the key to good health is in education and core strength. With this is mind I am continuing to invest heavily in my training and in my equipment.

It is well documented that the New Zealand All Blacks include Pilates in their fitness programme but did you also know that the Aussie Canterbury Bulldogs also have compulsory Pilate’s classes to help prevent injuries.

With the Olympic athletes heading to London this year all eyes are on health and fitness and there are Premier League footballers and England cricket team members who all benefit from doing Pilates.

I am pleased to tell you that you do not have to be a professional sportsman to enjoy the benefits of Pilates.  Pilates was developed for both men and woman but today only 25% of those attending classes are men.  Why is this?

I know that Pilates is a valuable form of exercise because it develops your core strength and improves your posture and that's something that men can benefit from just as much as women.  It is also helping me come back from injury after years of forceful military exercise and posture.

As a sport’s osteopathic specialist I believe that the very best way to improve posture and develop muscle strength is to train the body's core muscles - those around the trunk and pelvis in a controlled environment. Using specialized Pilates equipment to help you achieve you’re goals. These comprise of the Pilates Reformer, trapeze and the chair.

BUPA Wellness website recommends Pilates exercises as an “effective exercise without strain alongside yoga and Swiss ball exercises.”  Those core muscles which Pilates targets so perfectly can help alleviate back problems and help develop a flat stomach. Two things that top the list of many a man's health and fitness wish list.

I can offer one to one assistance and working alongside pre-existing health issues to target the core and help to eliminate injury and many other aches and pains.
At Broomfield osteopathic clinic we can now focus on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders, and the effects of these conditions on your general health.  Using many of the diagnostic procedures applied in conventional medical assessment, I am seeking to help you restore the optimal functioning of your body without the use of drugs or surgery. 

Osteopathy is based on the principle that the body has the ability to heal, and osteopathic care focuses on strengthening the musculoskeletal systems to treat existing conditions and to prevent illness.   Where else in Herne Bay can you get such patient-centered approach to health and well-being?  For the holistic approach tailored to your individual needs please check out my website www.osteo.co.uk or call me to book an appointment.

Together we can make 2012 a better year for you.
