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.
A few sessions and I'm cured!!! Like many others I gave up on the NHS waiting list and came here for immediate treatment. I was crippled with pain and couldn't work. I highly recommend Rebecca to all with back problems!!
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!
I am very pleased to have found Jess, after 5 weeks of pain and suffering Jess has released the spasm in my lower back and glutes and I am able to work tomorrow. She is very knowledgeable and experienced and has no problem getting deep into my tense muscles when others were not able. I have tried every form of physical therapy and a great osteopath is a golden find. Thanks very much
Have been going to see Jess for 6 months for a number of problems which after session I feel a lot better and my aches and pains are eased also Jess explains this very well and makes you understand why she is doing a recreation. Would highly recommend.
I went to see Sarah with chronic neck and upper back pain, I have only had 2 treatments and I have seen huge improvements. Sarah could see exactly what was wrong and new exactly how to treat me. I’m so pleased with her service. I Cannot recommend more.
Excellent treatment and practise. Booked appointment same day. Very COVID safe. Very impressed with Jessica. Acupuncture treatment included in treatment. Highly recommend.
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.
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!!!!
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!
Jess has done a fantastic job with my back.
