Adam Schamroth is a General Osteopathic Council certified osteopath with a Masters of Osteopathy degree from the British School of Osteopathy in addition to Bsc in Environmental Sciences from the University of Manchester.
Having previously worked with both Chiropractors as well as Osteopaths he now specialises in postural correction and posture related conditions such as back, neck and shoulder pain.

Damian was awarded his Masters in Osteopathy from the renowned British School of Osteopathy, which has an excellent reputation, particularly for what is called ‘Structural Osteopathy’. This is the best known form of osteopathy and concentrates on understanding the interplay of forces through joints muscles and soft-tissues. Treatment uses articulation (Movement of joints to gradually increase range of motion), soft-tissue work (forms of massage type treatment to muscles and other soft-tissues) and manipulation (very small but fast movements of a joint which may result in an audible pop or click).
As an osteopath Damian is interested in why the dysfunction has occurred and will undertake a holistic review of the patient to address any asymmetries or imbalances, this will encompass more than just the musculoskeletal system and we may discuss any lifestyle factors which may contribute to your presentation.
