What a year 2019 has been for our team here at Ebrook Osteopathy and Sports Clinic!
We’ve seen babies born, new practitioners join, awards won, and our team really settle into their new home in the heart of Sutton Coldfield.
We’ve welcomed Lizzie Watters to the team this year, and she has made a massive impact on the way our team manage runners and their injuries. Lizzie has set up our very own specialist Runner’s Clinic, which she runs at least once a month – to thoroughly analyse and improve the technique of runners, with the aim of improving their performance and preventing injury. Lizzie has excelled this year, and is beginning to develop a dedicated patient base of happy runners!
November saw our team at the Institute of Osteopathy’s Annual Awards Ceremony, receiving second place in both the Associate of the Year and Principal of the Year categories. It is a massive honour to be recognised for our clinic’s work in this national forum of Osteopathic excellence.
In particular, one of our Osteopaths, Hans Sturm was honoured by the Institute of Osteopathy for his excellent clinical work and patient care – but also for his efforts to make Osteopathic principals better understood by the public through researching and beginning production of his first podcast – OsteoCast. We are so excited to listen to the first episodes, which are due to be published in early 2020.
2019 saw our team really hitting their stride at our central Sutton Coldfield location; taking advantage of having more space to increase the number of appointments they are able to offer to their patients each week. None more so than our Associate Osteopath Samantha Owen, who has taken her role at the clinic from part to full time this year. We feel so lucky than Samantha has chosen our clinic to be her sole location of work; especially as she has a much sought-after skill set for the local families in Sutton – Cranial Osteopathy for babies and children.
We head into the New Year with great gratitude for the support of our patients in 2019, and with our sights set on continuing to develop our practice in the years to come.
