sports osteopath

Jake is a passionate osteopath, who has a keen interest in managing both acute and chronic pain.

As a lover of everything sport and exercise, Jake enjoys applying himself to help individuals from different sporting backgrounds. He has been fortunate enough to work alongside professional boxers, rugby players, footballers and numerous personal trainers. Jake believes there is huge value to osteopathy in the sporting field including injury prevention and performance optimisation. Although he finds this particular aspect of clinical practice rewarding, his expertise is by no means limited to athletes.


As an osteopath Jake approaches whole person and will not just treat your symptoms. He utilises the innate ability of the body to heal and adapt to overcome various pain presentations. The diversity between each patient and their pain presentation is reflected by the management approach.


However, as a skilled osteopathic clinician it will always include some form of manual therapy, often supplemented by a progressive rehabilitation protocol. His knowledgeable and empathetic approach ensures you receive comprehensive treatment and a full opportunity for recovery.
