There are three osteopaths based at the Buxton Osteopathy Clinic. Phil Heler founded the clinic in January 2009, having already worked in Sheffield and Buxton. His associates are Chris Hanson and Rebecca Burtt.
Phil originally studied Human Nutrition and Food Science, gaining First Class Honours, and completed a Masters in Medical Science before becoming qualified as an osteopath. He continues his academic career alongside his clinic work, as he is completing a Masters in Sports Rehabilitation and Injury with a view to doing a PhD based on the physiological effects of sports massage.
Chris is a graduate of the European School of Osteopathy. He uses a gentle treatment approach which allows him to treat a wide range of patients, from the newborn to the elderly. Chris lived in the Lake District before deciding to retrain as an osteopath. He has always had an interest in health and fitness and holds a qualification as a Pilates matwork instructor. His passions include outdoor activities, particularly hill walking and mountain biking.
Rebecca Burtt graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in London (previously BCNO) in 1995. She has since worked in practices in Yorkshire, Wellington (N.Z) and Cambridge, and has now settled in the Peak District. She is a keen hillwalker and enjoys climbing, mountain biking, gardening, nature conservation and beekeeping.
REMEDYING THOSE ACHES AND PAINS THAT WILL NOT GO AWAY
Many people suffer from problems such as arthritis as we grow older, and although with conditions such as this a complete cure is not possible, osteopathy can make a huge difference and greatly enhance our quality of life. Osteopathic care ensures that you understand your condition and are aware of any factors that may serve to aggravate it.
With careful management and the appropriate osteopathic treatment, living with long-term problems doesn’t have to mean suffering constant pain.
REPETITIVE STRAIN INJURIES
Whether your work entails heavy lifting, long periods of sustained posture such as driving or sitting at a desk, or repeatedly performing the same actions, the outcome is fatigue and ultimately discomfort in muscles and joints. Not forgetting that housework and looking after children can be just as wearing. Whatever your occupation, we will help to alleviate the fatiguing and painful effects on your body.
The Buxton Osteopathy Clinic is open Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 6.30pm, and Saturday from 9.00am to 3.30pm. We can also arrange visits at your home, workplace or anywhere else to suit your requirements, including appointments on evenings and weekends.
