“"Every patient is different and requires a different approach to getting them better, which keeps my days interesting!"”
Jacqui Almond M.Ost
Jacqui graduated from Leeds Beckett University in 2015 with Masters in Osteopathy degree. She treats a variety of different pain related issues, including acute sports injuries, generalised aches and pains, and chronic complaints. Jacqui follows a structural approach to diagnosis, treatment and long-term management, with a focus on pre-disposing events and lifestyle factors that could be contributing to your condition, and a thorough postural assessment in order to understand the main source of any given complaint.
She emphasises the importance of prevention and management, with ergonomic advice, exercise prescription and day- to day adaptations to ensure you get the most out of your sessions. Her treatment involves a variety of different techniques, which aim to treat locally, as well as on a more holistic scale.
“I stumbled upon Osteopathy after watching my dad suffer from lower back pain throughout my childhood. From a very young age, he would always ask me to walk on his back, which isn’t something I would recommend to any patient now! It was Osteopathy that my dad would always turn to when he was suffering from an episode. I would go along with him to watch the treatment he received and I found myself fascinated by what they were doing.
It wasn’t until I went to University to study it that I actually understood the depth and reasoning behind everything that an Osteopath chooses to do. I take pride in our practice and believe it should be the primary choice for diminishing musculoskeletal pain. I receive daily reward from the results I am able to achieve with my patients. Every patient is different and requires a different approach to getting them better, which always keeps my days interesting!
Since graduating I have had experience working on an NHS contract, with the primary focus on lower back pain, where I dealt with treating people suffering from acute episodes of lower back strains and sprains to more severe and chronic lower back issues.”
