Osteopathy and Clinical Nutrition with Joanne Blades
Jo graduated from Aberdeen University in Medical Science and later as an Osteopath from The British School of Osteopathy in London in 2008 and then completed post graduate studies with the Gray Institute in the USA in Physical Therapy Biomechanics (Applied Functional Science) where she was involved in sports team “prehab” programs.
She has a passion for learning and helping others to live healthy and fulfilling lives through Osteopathy and Clinical Nutrition – using food as medicine.
Jo gained a lot of experience in multidisciplinary practices together with chiropractors, physiotherapists, personal trainers and strength and conditioning coaches in London and thereafter has worked in Norway and Australia.
As an Osteopath with a special interest in biomechanics she likes to look at the patient as a whole, considering how everything is connected in the body and how often many components come together to result in an injury. Her specialities include treating neurological/nerve injuries including through sports trauma or disc related problems.
Jo´s personal interests include Functional Training and Crossfit as well as a love of the outdoors! To book an appointment with Jo call 01721 720694
All our practitioners have completed training in dry needling and often use a combination of dry needling/acupuncture and Chiropractic/Osteopathy to treat a number of musculoskeletal conditions.
Chris, Pamella and Joanne have all attended the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS) foundation course as well as several additional acupuncture courses through BMAS. This further training encompassed not only the use of acupuncture for musculoskeletal conditions but also the wider use of acupuncture for a variety of other conditions and general wellbeing.
