Peter Black

Having had personal experience of the benefits of Osteopathic treatment as a young boy, Peter Black wanted to use this treatment to help others.  Peter graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine with a First Class honours degree in 2004.  Since then he has gained a wealth of experience from treating a wide range of patients, from sports players to office workers, from children to people in their 90s.

Peter puts the relationship between the osteopath and the patient at the heart of what he does.

“My first job when assessing a patient is to listen. I’m not trying to get as many patients through the door as I can, everyone who visits is given the time they need to discuss their health and well-being. It’s important they build trust in me and together we work out the best way to manage their treatment and get them back on track”.

“One of the original definitions of ‘doctor’ is ‘teacher’ and that’s what osteopaths are.

“I try to give people guidelines to improve their health in the long term, so they understand how to manage their body, to know its limitations and to look after it so they don’t need to come back and see me every week.”

“What I love is that I can be treating a boy of 12 who’s done too much running, then my next patient is a 90-year-old recovering from a stroke who has all that life experience. I love that variety.

“It’s great when I get a call from someone I haven’t seen for a few years and they say: ‘You did such a fantastic job on my back, I’m hoping you can do it again on my knee.'” ~ Peter Black
