Announcement. Hello everyone, this is an announcement for JDOsteo. Early last year we decided to leave the UK and move to Australia for family reasons. It has been a tough time trying to organise everything especially during the pandemic. We managed to get things sorted and a few days ago we got into the country. All active clients of our clinic had been personally informed, but unfortunately we lost touch with a lot of people during these unprecedented times. Purus Active He
Osteopaths and Physiotherapists are considered essential workers. We are guided by the government and our professional bodies (General Osteopathic Council and Chartered Society of Physiotherapists respectively) and therefore have remained open during these restrictive times. Rest assured, we are taking all precautions to keep you and our staff safe (Full PPE, Temperature checks, Screening Questionnaires, Thorough disinfection). The government is urging people to stay at home
A lot of people have reservations about being vaccinated, understandably, however it is better when you comprehend the pros and cons of vaccines and make an informed decision. First of all we need to understand how the vaccines work and then understand the data that comes out of trials. Vaccines contain a microorganism or virus in a weakened state, or proteins or toxins from the organism. This helps the stimulation of the body's adaptive immunity in order to prevent infectio
Maybe this is the most challenging period of our lifetime and we are still not out of the woods. It has affected our relationships, our mental health, our economy and so many more aspects of our lives. So, is this the most stressed you 've been? Some of us are still dragging ourselves out of bed every morning, getting through the day, sleep and do it all over again. Some have had the opportunity to rejuvenate from working from home and they are either still enjoying it or hav
Book now with our Physiotherapist, Finola Burrell Finola has always been interested in exercise and health and was heavily involved in sports and dance during her school years (in particular Irish dancing and ballet), and so becoming a physiotherapist seemed the obvious career choice. Finola qualified nine years ago and since then she has spent a huge amount of time researching the best exercise and health recommendations for her patients. Finola believes that most consistent
Following the government advice and the guidelines of the General Osteopathic Council we are getting prepared to welcome you back into the clinic. Returning to a "New" normal means we have to adapt as necessary. We need to make ensure the safety of our staff and our patients and therefore before every consultation your clinician will be calling you with some screening questions related to your injury and your health. When you get to the clinic we are required to take your tem
It is true, some of us have been given the gift of time. But the reality of it is far from idealistic for some people. So much free time that you don't know what to do with it. I take pride in the fact that I am not getting bored easily, but even I had to start searching for some inspiration in order to fill my time. If you are working still, then I suppose you are just in a less comfortable environment, surrounded by kids and dogs and you are struggling to listen to that mor
New Milestone. Celebrating 6 months in our new premises is really exciting and surprisingly insightful into how difficult it is to set a business up from scratch. To all of you out there thinking that this is the next step for your career, congratulations, it is a great step, but beware of the risks. We set up in a brand new location, with no leads and no connections but with a great footfall. Victoria is a vibrant and very interesting location, as it is filled with business
This issue is topical and it has been my main research topic since I graduated from university. This topic is why I furthered my studies into Psychology. It is such a complicated matter and I have been postponing writing it for a while. I do not want to give advice, but merely inform of its significance. The co existence of these two conditions is underestimated and often poorly understood. It is important to understand that since these two conditions are common causes of mor

It has been in the making for a while and I am so excited to share it with you. I will keep updating with pictures, news and offers as we go along. Waiting period: 6 weeks. Will see you all there.
It happens to the best of us. Whether you are a physical therapist, an athlete, a workaholic, young or old, male or female. Unfortunately, lower back pain has no exceptions. After years of competitive horse riding, tennis and athletics my time had come. The truth is I didn't have a noble injury to be proud of and tell the story. No. I fell down the stairs. More embarrassing and of course I blame the stairs. To this day. Weirdly enough everyone's question was not- how did it h
21st century. Loving it. Exercise has finally become trendy. For some of us it is a hobby, for others a profession, day in and day out. But, whatever the reason behind your drive for a healthy lifestyle is, you could be a sufferer. Exercise induced headaches present after a prolonged and strenuous exercise. Here's a summarised presentation Headache is pain felt in any part of the head, factor scalp and the interior of the head. (MM) More than 10 million people in the UK get h
What is the main difference between Osteopathy and Physiotherapy? The eternal question. I have been asked this question so many times and I find myself giving different answers every time. I came upon an article written by Ian Cassidy recently who put it in a very nice way: sure both treatment modalities may be similar or even may seem identical sometimes, but the outcome is far from identical. But why?
Osteopathy has a uniting philosophy behind the treatment. It is not wha
