Joseph Chimera BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy. PgDip Man Therapy. PgDip Musculoskeletal Medicine. MHCPC. MCSP. MSOMM

I qualified as physiotherapist in 1999. I’ve done extensive post graduate training including acupuncture, diploma in Manual Therapy, diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine, peripheral Injection Therapy and Independent Non-Medical Prescribing. Currently working as an Extended Scope Physiotherapist (NHS) and as a manual therapist. I have been working in private clinics for ten years.

Currently on Sabbatical completing a MSc Musculoskeletal Medicine (Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh)

Wealth of experience as a specialist musculoskeletal practitioner with special interest in spinal and peripheral manual physiotherapy, sports injuries rehabilitation and practise acupuncture.

I am a good listener, very compassionate and very patient centred. In addition to formal physiotherapy, I will also “help you to help yourself”. I do comprehensive assessment and treatment techniques tailored towards agreed therapeutic goals – relieving symptoms, empowering and equipping you to self-manage. Where physiotherapy is not indicated, I can advise your GP on appropriate investigations and best pain control medication for your condition – in line with my current role as an Extended Scope Physiotherapist. Working alongside a spinal consultant in the NHS has enhanced my interest and understanding of spinal pain – including best physiotherapy and medical management for spinal pain.

I am a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists and Health and Care Professions Council as well as a member of the Society of Musculoskeletal Medicine (SOMM).

Outside work, I enjoy road cycling and running regularly. I have participated in a number of charity bike rides and cycling sportives. My cycling target is to do a 100-mile bike ride! Best one-off distance cycled so far is 76 miles for Against Breast Cancer Charity in Oxford. The best I’ve run is 12km. I aim to do a half marathon in future.

  • 5 star review  I have had back pain intermittently for a few year due to occupational activities. Whenever I feel the pain Sarah is the first point of call. She has "fixed" me more times than I care to remember. the absolute best care and professionalism always and I leave in better shape than I arrived every time.

  • 5 star review  After a recommendation to bring my newborn to an osteopath we found Sarah. From 2 weeks old she treated our son for a few weeks and we have noticed a huge improvement in his head movements and general flexibility! We’ve felt very safe with her covid safe measures and also very welcome. I’ve already recommended her to two friends and won’t hesitate to recommend her again and again!

  • 5 star review  I have been going to Bucks Osteopathy for 6 months and am a regular patient of Jess'. She has been great. I have issues with my lower back from past injuries, however I went because of pain in my leg and the issue was diagnosed quickly and linked to my previous back injuries. Treatment has been hugely effective and I've also had support outside of appointments as well, with exercises and life style changes to aid recovery. I've recently had a shoulder injury which again has been diagnosed and treatment has already made a started rapidly easing symptoms. They are COVID safe, responsive and friendly and all treatment is holistic, Jess really takes time to get to know you, how you work and what will work for you. I couldn't recommend them, and Jess, more!

  • 5 star review  For a year in lockdown I had a progressively bad back leading to sciatica. In desperation I made an appointment with Sarah. I'm amazed that after just 3 sessions I'm pain free and the sciatica has disappeared. No more sleepless nights and bending down without pain is such a relief. My only regret is I didn't go sooner. Can't thank you enough Sarah. Life saver!!!!

  • 5 star review  I have been receiving acupuncture treatments with Ivan while undergoing chemotherapy, for side effects such as sleep disturbances. Ivan has always been very considerate, well informed and intuitive to the underlying causes, and the acupuncture results have been immediate with lasting effects. Ivan has always been very professional in his treatments, making me feel very comfortable and at ease. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend an acupuncture treatment with him, the treatment won’t cause disappointment.
