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 to travel South East Asia and New Zealand for six months before returning to begin my career as an Osteopath in London. The past 17 years have seen me working in both private and NHS clinics in Earlsfield, Battersea and 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 injuries. In particular, I specialise in spinal, shoulder, hip, knee and ankle injuries in addition to helping people with tension and neck-related headaches. My treatment is a structural approach using a combination of massage, manipulation, mobilisation and neuromuscular techniques, in addition to  rehabilitation exercises.

Beyond general practice, I live an active life having played football, rugby and cricket to a good standard in my teens and twenties. In the last ten years I have switched to more individual sports such as golf and Brazilian Ju-Jitsu. I play off a 18 handicap and hold a purple belt respectively.

As an adjunct to my osteopathic work, I practice dry needling and incorporate clinical Pilates. I studied clinical Pilates in my late twenties after suffering from two prolapsed discs from playing rugby. The debilitating injury challenged my perception of managing injuries as I sought to add a way of preventing recurrence as well as pain management.
