Patrick Jennings M.Ost
I spent 4 years at Swansea University studying a masters in Osteopathy. While at university I developed an extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal injuries, exercise rehabilitation and nutrition. I enjoy using both modern and traditional osteopathic techniques, with a primary objective of reducing pain and increasing the ability to carry out daily activities.
My personal journey with Osteopathy began in my early teens due to being a keen sportsman. Originally it was treatment for an injury, but I soon learnt the importance of using treatment as a preventative measure, rather than a cure, which had greater benefits than all of the training I was doing. I became fascinated by an Osteopaths ability to establish the source of dysfunction and treat appropriately with direct and indirect manual techniques supported by exercise prescription.
In addition to my Master qualification, I have also completed a post-graduate degree in Animal Osteopathy with the renowned Stuart McGregor at the Osteopathic Centre for Animals. This additional qualification came as a result of a life spent around dogs & horses where I learnt the harsh realities of loving a pet that becomes hurt, and how animals should have just as many resources as humans when it comes to alleviating pain.
While playing rugby at Lymm Rugby & Squash Club, I regularly use the gym and have a growing interest in functional strength and conditioning for all body types.
I also hold a qualification in structural and kinesiology taping which can be used alongside treatment.
Over time I wish to gain further qualifications which can enhance Osteopathic Treatment.
