Default Hello from london

Hello all

I am an osteopath based in london. Stumbled on this site through facebook links. I hope to be able to learn and digest much from the assembled wisdom on these pages.

best wishes

Jim

Welcome.

We rarely get osteopaths or Londoners here. One moderator, Luke Rickards, is also an osteopath, trained in Australia.

ah well I fear that many osteopaths are deep down the biomechanical rabbit hole...

As a profession we have a journey to go to embrace the way that neuroscience is heading.

However many of my younger colleagues are looking around and dismissing much of the old fashioned belief systems which are present in Osteopathic teaching and training...

Welcome here Jim - enjoy the deep well of info that so many folks here provide. I am a solo practitioner and have very limited access to colleagues with brains, journals or creative ideas from other professionals. This place saves me.

Hello Jim,

being in London do you go to Eyal Ledermans seminars ? Being so far away i can't manage it but I would go to listen to him or his wife . Eyal writes well and his myth of the core was popular here!
However, most of the courses which fill up fast are based on 'guts' or grade 5 manipulations. Seems to me you are either into this or the cranial field at the other end of the spectrum!

Hope you find stuff of interest ......Once you get immersed in the neuro pain stuff you might appear strange or a complete misfit to your colleagues ......this can happen!

Hi Jim,

Welcome to SS. We just had someone here trying to decide whether to pursue osteopathic education. If you've got any insights, you can chime in here.
