Osteopathy
Osteopathy is a way of treating damaged parts of the body, such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints. It is the aim of osteopaths to achieve the best possible body balance so that it will function with the minimum of wear, stress and energy; most treatment is carried out by osteopaths using their hands.

Andrew Gilmour has been practising for more than 30 years. He has been involved on the General Osteopathic Council and in assessing graduating osteopaths. His special interest is in the treatment and management of spinal problems.

Felix Cory-Wright believes it is of vital importance to ascertain the root cause of an ailment, rather than focus on simply treating the symptoms, and does this by addressing the triad of structural, biochemical and psychological obstacles to health.

Physiotherapy
Mark Endacott is an experienced physiotherapist with a special interest in the treatment of sports injuries. While osteopathy helps in the initial phase of treatment, physiotherapy helps with rehabilitation. It also has a role in the prevention of re-occurring problems including:

Sports injury rehabilitation
Rehabilitation before and after surgery
Improvement in 'core stability' - invaluable in the recovery from spinal problems
Structural Integration- changing longstanding postural dysfunction.

Spinal Physician
Dr Simon Harley has worked as a spinal physician at Ipswich Hospital and is a general practitioner; he is highly skilled in the management of complex spinal and musculoskeletal problems, including the use of injecting techniques and the management of chronic pain.

Sports and Exercise medicine
Dr Chris Rufford is a Sports and Exercise physician and a clinical senior lecturer at St Bartholomew's and the Royal London School of Medicine. He treats patients with all types of musculoskeletal problems and performs joint and soft tissue injections. He also has expertise in using exercise as a health tool to improve a patient's wellbeing.
