Sometimes you get a good run of being injury free & fit and be able to do the daily tasks we take for granted you also get to enjoy working out in the gym & getting the body you want.
I have been a bit crook of late with a trapped nerve in my hip area ( Sacroiliiac joint, left side) giving me a referral pain down my leg to the back of my knee so decided to go see my Osteopath Torben Hersborg @ The Central London Osteopath & sports injury clinic near Old st on Tuesday 16th February.
I know a from experience a few treatments & some stretch work at home it's only a matter of time before I am back to my normal self.
I've been fortunate keeping a healthy body but a few years ago I had a serious neck injury,
I was recommended Torben by a personal training colleague and true to form he put me right in a few treatments, I'll always be thankful for that, as I kid you not I struggled to walk to the clinic and was overwhelmed by the injury & the stress it was causing resulting in me breaking down tears on his treatment table..(yep first time we met, I laugh now) for I though that was it, he just gave me a reassuring look (as he does) then did his Jedi like work, I walked out thinking...
"What the.. that was "fcunkig Billairnt!”..😄
The video above is a couple of years ago with me being treated, this time I had been over zealous doing a 80kg+ snatch,( Olympic lift) without properly mobilising my hip, so unfortunately my body compensated elsewhere, this is where Torben is great as he deals with top athletes in a wide range of sports & is so experienced with the working bio-mechanics of the human body you just know you're in good hands.

What does Torben and osteopathy actually do?
The osteopath's role is to alleviate pain and improve the patient's function and mobility, Osteopathy is a form of homeopathic medicine which treats the body’s musculoskeletal system by treating not just the symptoms of the patient,
but looking for the root cause of their medical problems. It promotes complete body health by diagnosing and treating the muscles, tendons and joints with the goal of improving the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems.
The therapy is a distinctive whole body approach that balances all of the body’s systems to provide overall positive health.
It utilises nutrition and lifestyle modifications rather than medications and surgeries to effect changes in a person’s health. Many osteopaths have specialties in paediatrics, internal medicine, family medicine or gynaecology.
The holistic approach of osteopathy is well recognised and accepted world wide. The philosophy of osteopathy is based, in part, on the belief that the body has a built-in self-regulatory system and is able to repair itself.
Osteopaths are of the opinion that the movement of body fluids is critical to health maintenance and that nerves play
and important part in this body fluid movement.
