“ I love nothing more than discovering the root cause of a problem & then working towards not only overcoming the symptoms but also preventing re-occurrence.”
Steven Ojari M.Ost
Steven graduated from the British School of Osteopathy with a Master of Osteopathy degree. He enjoys treating a wide variety of patients and has studied at postgraduate level in paediatric osteopathy having worked for a year at the prestigious Osteopathic Centre for Children.
He is happy treating a wide range of problems from back and neck pain and sports people wanting to achieve more to babies. He uses a variety of structural, cranial and visceral osteopathic techniques in order to achieve the best results possible for his patients, incorporating lifestyle and exercise advice if required to avoid injury reoccurrence.
Steven believes in lifelong learning and regularly attends courses to further his expertise, having certificates in gait analysis, neuromuscular rehabilitation, cranial osteopathy and advanced osteopathic technique amongst many others. Steven used to be head of year for osteopathic technique at Leeds Metropolitan University, leaving in 2015 to spend more time in clinic.
“I became an Osteopath because helping people is what I feel my life is about. Being an Osteopath combines all the aspects of life I best enjoy; meeting people, problem-solving and using my hands to help people. Teaching allows me to not only pass on the knowledge I have but also keeps it current and readily accessible.
I believe that the cause of someone’s complaint is often a little deeper and more complex than it often appears. I love nothing more than discovering the root cause and then working towards not only overcoming the symptoms but also preventing re-occurrence.
Whilst I enjoy helping people of all ages I have a particular interest in babies and children having volunteered for a year at the Osteopathic Centre for Children in London. I gained lots of experience helping an extremely varied range of patients and continue to see babies in clinic at Bannerdale Osteopaths.
My philosophy is quite simple when it comes to being an Osteopath I am here to help guide you towards health. The human body has a fantastic capacity to heal and grow and it is by removing any barriers to this that a healthy happy life can be enjoyed. I do this by using techniques such as massage and joint mobilisation, very gentle high velocity low amplitude thrust and subtle cranial techniques. In addition to advice on stretching, exercise and ergonomics.

What my patients say…
“I pass Bannerdale Osteopaths each day on my way to work, so when I started with pain in my shoulder and arm, I thought I would give them a try. I had a number of sessions with Steven Ojari, who was thorough in his diagnosis of the problem, he gave me exercises to do in between sessions to speed my recovery and advice on correcting my posture. Steven is friendly and approachable and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.”

“I came to Steven last November with hands going numb in the night. After a few sessions, my back problems are sorted. Steven is professional, friendly, and clearly knows what he is doing.”
Anneliese, Marketing and Communications, Sheffield
“I have used Steve now for a number of years now when I have an episode of back trouble, he is always friendly and provides are fantastic value for money service. I would recommend him to anyone needing Osteopath treatment.”
Matt, Manager, Sheffield
“I have been visiting Bannerdale Osteopaths since my first pregnancy (for SPD Pelvic Pain) and for the last 7 yrs on and off. Whenever Back pain strikes I can rely on Steven to make me feel better and the symptoms soon disappear. I usually feel better immediately after treatment and then better again after a couple of days. I can go for long periods without treatment but when I do need treatment for Shoulder and Lower back pain whether caused by injury or stress then I have not found a better remedy than my visits to Steven’s practice.”
