As an evidenced based practice, we stay up to date with the latest healthcare research, ensuring we are able to take the very best care of you, our patients.
Occasionally we are able to also contribute to the medical literature and after years of study and research our clinic principal Kris, working with Dr Oliver Thomson PhD from the University College of Osteopathy London, has published his research on Safe Lifting beliefs and Back Pain Attitudes.
The research focuses on back pain, however discusses a broader perspective on pain management, encouraging a positive mindset in the approach for both practitioner and patient that can remove barriers to a quicker recovery.
