Steve McMullen M.Ost., D.O.

Osteopath

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Steve was so impressed at the positive results of osteopathic treatment for his own sports and work related injuries that he decided to leave his job as a firefighter in NZ, and train to become an osteopath. He graduated from the European School of Osteopathy with 1st class honours, and has been working with patients since 2015.  His personal experiences of pain and injuries allow particular empathy with that of his patients. 

 

Steve’s treatments aim to relieve not only immediate pain, but also to identify and address the root cause of the problem. He works closely with his patients to explain their situation to them, offers them hands on treatment in the clinic, and supports this by providing personally tailored home exercises as needed.

 

His treatment approach favours a range of gentle, ‘indirect’, soft tissue techniques, as well as stronger, ‘direct’, articulations and manipulations, enhanced by dry-needling (a form of western acupuncture), but he is always guided by the preferences of his patients. To complement his osteopathy, he has further qualifications in sports massage, dry needling, sports taping and kinesiology taping. 

 

Away from osteopathy, Steve enjoys keeping fit in a multitude of ways, he takes part in trail running, squash and rock climbing, while old injuries have forced him into taking more of a sofa-based interest in rugby and martial arts. As a new challenge, he has just started CrossFit, and is enjoying pushing himself in new and unusual ways! He prefers to be out in the countryside riding motorcycles or cycling and is an avid traveller.
