Matthew Downard

Osteopath

Matthew graduated as an Osteopath from the European School of Osteopathy in July 2021 with a M. Ost degree in Osteopathy. Whilst studying osteopathy, he has been working as a Sports Massage Therapist, treating a variety of sports teams and private patients. He is also qualified in medical acupuncture, which he uses as a complimentary treatment alongside osteopathy.

Matthew has developed a deep interest in strength and condition training since joining a gym 4 years ago. He believes that once a patient has been treated, it is highly important to maintain function and develop well executed movement patterns, as this has a massive carry over into everyday activity. Maintaining strength and flexibility is essential to the process and can be achieved by practicing Pilates.

From his studies and sporting experiences, Matthew has an extensive knowledge of different disciplines, which enables him to adapt and tailor sessions to provide the appropriate treatment to meet his patient's goals and expectations. When he is not a work he can be found in the gym or out on a golf course.

He has now focused his enthusiasm for health and fitness towards helping his patients to achieve their desired outcome.
