Joel Brightman – Osteopath  MOst

In quite a familiar theme for osteopaths, I studied osteopathy after osteopathic treatment for severe wrist and shoulder pain allowed me to continue with my previous career as a musician and music teacher.

After 4 years study I graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 2012 with a Masters degree in osteopathy.

Since graduating I have attended regular post-graduate professional development courses to improve my skills in cranial osteopathy, whilst maintaining an interest in visceral osteopathy and other gentle technique approaches. I am studying with Christian on the Traditional Osteopathy (Biodynamics) programme, and continue to develop my experience treating horses and other large animals.

Osteopathy is amazing because it allows me to transform the desire to help my fellow humans (and animals) into an action.

As well as general practice I really enjoy treating kids from five years old to teenagers, arthritis sufferers and problems arising from repetitive strain, particularly in musicians.

Outside of work I love to walk in wild places, sleep outside and travel. I have a wife, a son, I drive mules when I can, and I still play unlistenable music on the hurdy-gurdy!
