Osteopath Harrogate Knaresborough

Osteopathy

Originally from Knaresborough, Sebastian graduated from the British School of Osteopathy, widely regarded as the premier osteopathic training establishment in
the world. He received a Bachelor of Osteopathy degree with honours and was also awarded the coveted and highly sought after golden patella hammer award by his
peers.

Sebastian returned to North Yorkshire to provide osteopathic treatment for the people of Knaresborough, Harrogate, Ripon, Wetherby and the surrounding villages of the Harrogate District.


Sebastian has been made a full member of the British Osteopathic Association (BOA) as well as the Osteopathic Sports Care Association (OSCA) and is state-registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) a body concerned with the continued professional development (CPD) of practitioners.

A firm advocate of CPD Sebastian regularly attends courses to update his skills and keep abreast of current developments in the world of Osteopathy & Medicine.

Following graduation he enrolled for a diploma in Classical Osteopathy, training with a 98 year old Osteopath (the oldest alive at the time) who had been working, teaching and researching Osteopathy for 71 years. This has enabled Sebastian to gain valuable expertise and further develop his Osteopathic skills. At present he is writing his thesis in order to attain his Masters degree in Osteopathic Sport Care

Sebastian’s special interests include spinal, sports and work related injuries, postural correction (increasing awareness of and helping correct those awkward and poor postures) hence his links with The Yorkshire Diving Squad and The Northern School of Contemporary Dance

More about osteopathy:

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and manual treatment focusing on the structural integrity of the body. That is, the skeleton, but also the muscles, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissues that are intimately related; pain so often being caused by the protective reaction of a muscle to misalignment and restriction in the small facet joints of the spine or to the minor displacement of other joints in the upper and lower limbs.

Misalignment in one part of the skeleton will often affect and place undue stress on other parts. For example, a restricted / misaligned pelvis may cause apposition problems in the hip joints, tracking problems through the knees, uneven weight bearing through the lower limbs, apparent leg length discrepancy as well as a lateral curvature of the spine. The result can be pain and other symptoms arising from joint compensation, muscle spasm, tension or nerve root irritation.
