Sometimes life positively beams at you! Little Broomfield Road in West Ealing was amongst the two or three streets privileged in witnessing the runners of the Ealing marathon… both on their way out and their way back… and in glorious sunshine! Located at 12 Broomfield Road, Bridge to Health was open this Sunday from 8am through to 2pm so that we could cheer on the runners, provide water and deal with injuries if required. Our osteopaths Harry and Mathieu , and our life coach Clotilde joined our jeweler neighbour Alfred Winiecki to provide loud support to the 6,500 athletes.
As osteopaths, we want to see our patients heal as quickly and effectively as possible, and hopefully to educate them to manage their health more effectively in the future. In theory, that mission is accomplished at the point where we “discharge” the patient. But in practice, it’s the patient’s point of view that matters – so how do we really find out how successful we are?
Stress is almost an inevitable consequence of modern life, yet few people have any practical tools with which to manage it on a routine basis.Beyond the particulars of each specific patient presentation, one simple form of treatment stands out in the care of most, if not all, patients betraying signs of stress.
Occasionally, a patient reminds you not just of what osteopathy can do to reduce pain and improve health, but what is truly distinctive about its outlook and approach. Liz (not her real name) is a successful personal trainer with a distinguished sports career in kick-boxing and competitive weightlifting at a national level.
With less than four weeks to go until this year’s London Marathon I just wanted to highlight one of our very first blog posts - Treating injured marathon runners osteopathically
Laura Cooper has been in Uxbridge for many years and  has a well-established practice on the High Street, very close to our  own clinic.  I have personal experience of Joanna as she treated my  daughter for a recurring ingrown toenail, and did so painlessly,  effectively and kindly; I have also referred several patients to her for  in-soles, and they have all been satisfied with her professionalism and  effectiveness.
