BSO Outreach: Clinics at Darwin Court and Lucy Brown House

Following recognition of the BSO’ s work to make osteopathy accessible to everyone, such as its recent “Let’s Do It” community award, we here profile the work of two of its outreach clinics, which are aimed at providing treatment for older people. “I’ve been coming for treatment for back pain for several weeks now. I picked up a leaflet about it from the reception desk and I’m pleased I did. I feel the benefit when I’ve had a treatment: I’m always more mobile when I come out. I’ve also introduced another lady who has been suffering with her neck. It’s a good service: it’s free, and they are a very nice, friendly team.” Annie, 82, a patient at the BSO’s outreach osteopathy clinic at Darwin Court....(more)

BSO Outreach: East Street Clinic

Following recognition of the BSO’ s work to make osteopathy accessible to everyone, such as its recent CAM award for outstanding services to the community we here profile the work of one of its outreach clinics, which is based in the East Street GP surgery in Southwark. “Working at the BSO’s East Street clinic has made me more aware about the patient as a whole person, someone with a life outside the osteopathy treatment room. It has made me more aware of the general population as a whole; not just the people who often come for osteopathy for back pain. At East Street, we see people with multiple health problems – they have been hurting for a long time, and there are lots of reasons why they are hurting.” David Lasnet, BSO student....(more)
