Zuzana Tillner MSc Ost Med

When I was growing up I was always very surprised why my mother only got painkillers when she visited her GP for back pain. It provided some relief but of course she had to continue taking them otherwise the pain would come back. I was thinking why can’t they just find out what is broken and then fix it. Attending the British College of Osteopathic Medicine I have learnt how relatively simple this process can be and that it could be applied to any part of the body not just the back. Zuzana joined us at the practice in May 2018.
