Having worked as a skilled labourer and air conditioning installer for several years Lee stumbled upon Osteopathy after injuring his shoulder at work. After nearly two years of seeing his GP, a physiotherapist and a spinal specialist without success, a friend referred him to an Osteopath. Finally, he was given a diagnosis, a full explanation of his condition and Osteopathy treatment which at long last resolved his problem and left him pain-free, having suffered for so long.
Inspired by this, and wanting to help others in the same situation find solutions to their pain, Lee made the decision to re-train as an Osteopath. The first male in his family to go to university, he graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 2015.
“I was inspired to re-train as an Osteopath so that I could help people who were in a similar position to me, helping them find a solution and working with them to get them out of pain. I believe that understanding your condition is a key part of your recovery and I work in partnership with my patients, ensuring that they are actively involved in their recovery.
I enjoy treating all types of musculo-skeletal complaints including low back, shoulder and neck problems but also have a special appreciation for movement and rehabilitation for sports injuries after working with marathon runners at the Hyde Park half marathons and the Brighton marathon and also working pitch-side for Shoreham football club for three years.
The thing I like most about working in clinic is that you never know what’s going to walk through the door next and you never stop learning.
I am delighted to be part of this great team of osteopaths at the Sussex Back Pain Clinic.”
