Jamie Isherwood B Ost
I qualified from the British School of Osteopathy (now the University College of Osteopathy) in 2004 and have been a member of the General Osteopathic Council since. After graduating and working as a locum in Aberdeen, I left the UK in favour of six months of travel before returning to begin my career as an Osteopath in London. The past 15 years have seen me working in both private and NHS clinics in Earlsfield, Battersea and more recently in Putney where I still practice three days per week.
The focus of my clinic work is helping patients suffering from both acute and long-term pain and stiffness. In particular, I specialise in spinal injuries, shoulder, ankle and knee pain. In addition to clinical work, I run workshops for GPs on assessment and management of knee, shoulder, ankle and spine pain.
Beyond general practice, I live an active life having been sporty from a young age. I played county cricket until the age of 17 and continued to play rugby and football until my early thirties. Over the last few years, I have switched my focus to training in the chess-like martial art, Brazilian Ju-Jitsu.
In addition to Osteopathic work, I teach matwork Pilates. I studied Pilates in my late twenties after suffering from a prolapsed disc from lifting weights. The debilitating injury challenged my perception of managing injuries as I sought to add more strings to my bow. I now practice Pilates daily to help maintain my balance, improve my breathing and to keep my spine strong and supple.
