Hi, my name is Ben. I am the principle practitioner and I have been successfully using osteopathy to treat patients in Brighton since 2007.

Most of my patients come to me in pain. The aim of treatment is to relieve and eventually eliminate all pain and thereby enable people to return to normal function. Beyond this a further aim is to design a programme which helps people to manage their own health.

Most of the time I use osteopathy to treat joint and muscle pain. However pain has many presentations and causes and as a registered osteopath I am qualified to diagnose, treat and give advice for muscle and joint pain. Osteopathic qualification and regulation works in much the same way as regulation of medical doctors and that means you can be safe in the knowledge that a registered osteopath (see below) is first of all a safe clinician.

I also treat sports people to achieve optimum function. Sports people often have finely tuned bodies and are aware of blockages, tightness’s and restrictions that no amount of stretching will undo. Some sports people come in for a tune up and find that they perform better after treatment.

I believe osteopathic treatment and advice can help anyone achieve pain free and full potential. In my practice I treat patients ranging in age from 5 years old to patients well into their 90’s.

Osteopathy is a hands on medical system based on the science of anatomy and physiology. Osteopathic techniques vary from massage to manipulations and range from very gentle to quite vigorous. In every osteopathic treatment session patients will receive diagnosis, hands on treatment and advice on how to improve your condition through exercises and diet.

Since 2019 I have been treating students at The Brighton Academy (TBA) a university specialising in performing arts and musical theatre.

Registered Osteopaths train for 4 years at university level to gain a BSc in Osteopathy and must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC).

To contact me regarding the suitability of treatment or to book a consultation,  the number is 07733 366158.
