Billy trained for 4 years at the European School of Osteopathy, qualifying in 2023. He is registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
What influenced you to become an osteopath?
My first experience with Osteopathy was as a patient, having suffered with low back pain throughout my early 20’s. I was really impressed with osteopathy, the treatment was very effective, and the osteopath was able to explain the cause of my pain which really struck a chord with me. This experience inspired me to want to help others in the same way, leading to a change of profession into the healthcare sector as an osteopath.
When did you join the team?
I joined North Beds Osteopaths in February 2024.
What do you enjoy most about your role at North Beds Osteopaths?
I really enjoy helping patients to improve their quality of life, from infants to the elderly and everyone in between. I believe each patient is unique and has their own needs, requiring an individualised treatment approach to enable them to achieve their health goals. This means that my role as an osteopath never stops developing and is always interesting.
What specialist areas of practice are you particularly interested in?
I enjoy working with the general population, seeing a wide range of conditions, and treating patients of all ages. Treatment usually involves a variety of hands-on techniques as well as some exercise prescription. I also use cranial osteopathy with acute patients, children and babies.
How do you like to spend your spare time?
Outside of work I like to keep myself fit and healthy, and I have a keen interest in off-road cycling. I also enjoy spending time going for walks and adventures with family and friends.
