Last week we found out more about osteopath Peter Clark, so this week we take a look at what sparked fellow osteopath Mark Childerstone's interest and passion for Osteopathy? We asked him a few key questions....


What initially drew you to study osteopathy? I was initially drawn to osteopathy through personal recommendation for my own injuries. Once I looked further into the field, I knew it was what I wanted to do and geared all my education towards it.


What is the best bit about your job? The best part about the job is the ability to take people from debilitating pain to full function faster than they had ever expected.


What makes a good osteopath? Being a good osteopath is more than just the physical changes you bring towards the body, it is the ability to invoke a lasting change on the life style and habits of that person in order that they maintain their own health.


What do you like to do in your spare time? I can usually be found on my bicycle. I'm a member of London Phoenix CC and the Muswell Hill Peleton. If not on two wheels, I'm in the kitchen where I love to cook and switch the mind off.

Frozen Shoulders are among the most painful shoulder conditions, greatly restriciting motion to the extent that the patient is unable to fully lift their arms and makes the simplest of tasks difficult.


Peter Clark, osteopath at Highgate Osteopaths and Bodyworks Clinic, is a frozen shoulder specialist and subscribes to the the Niel-Asher technique after working closely with him over the past 10 years. This technique provides a good alternative to surgery and is a more 'natural' method of treatment that utilizes the body's own healing mechanisms using a specific and unique sequence of manipulations and pressure points to the shoulder joints and soft-tissues. For more information on the technique visit http://www.frozenshoulder.com/NAT


The Symptoms for a Frozen Shoulder are listed in 3 phases as shown below- please note this section is taken straight from the Niel-Asher website http://www.nielasher.com/pages/frozen-shoulder


''Phase I of frozen shoulder is characterised by sharp catching spasms that may come suddenly for no reason at all. Another characteristic is night pain that may even wake you up at night, disturbing your sleep and affecting your energy levels.


During Phase II, the night pain usually goes away. In all phases of frozen shoulder, you will experience restricted shoulder and arm movement. The stiffness can be severe, especially with certain movements such as reaching behind your back or above your head. Unfortunately, this can make the simplest of tasks difficult, like brushing your hair.


The stiffness will last through all three phases of frozen shoulder syndrome; however, it usually begins during phase II.''
