Adam Richmond

Osteopathy Nottingham Consultation

Adam qualified from the London School of Osteopathy. Since then he has taken further professional training with the European School of Osteopathy,  the world famous Prague School of Rehabilitation and more recently the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute (NOI) of Australasia.

Adam has a special clinical interest in the biomechanics of the lower limb and lumbo-pelvis which means he regularly sees and treats people with pain in the knees, hips and spine. He is committed to maintaining the standards required to work at the forefront of evidence based manual medicine whilst retaining the empathy and client care for which osteopathy is well recognised. Over the years Adam has trained with many health professionals including medical doctors and surgeons as well as many other osteopaths, physiotherapists and a couple of chiropractors. These experiences have enabled him to develop a unique evidence based style with what he describes as a structural, holistic approach to treatment. This means he will examine your whole body for muscle imbalance, joint restrictions and dysfunctions which may have predisposed your pain or symptoms. He will then use a range of gentle and robust techniques to get to the root cause of your problem.

Adam has owned the Lace Market Clinic in Nottingham for over 9 years. He takes a simple approach to business, keeping the overheads low which means he is not under pressure enabling him to focus on doing what he enjoys best which is helping clients to get better. The best evidence for this is in how Adam structures his diary. An initial appointment with Adam will last about 80 minutes which is longer than many other practitioners and allows for his thorough approach and genuine dialogue with each client.

A Satisfied Client – Erik’s Story.

“After 6 months of debilitating sciatica, which a Physiotherapist, a Chiropractor and 5 different prescription painkillers and anti-inflammatories had no impact on, I finally found Adam. It took nearly 6 more months to get me back to normal, but I don’t want that to sound like a complaint. All along the way Adam listened, tested, re-tested and adjusted my treatment routine until together we found what worked. I felt like a key part of the process, and it turns out that my body just needed a few months to be re-trained and strengthened. I went from being unable to sleep more than 3 hours each night, and not being able to even straighten my left leg, to running 25km a week. I have a running joke with Adam that I hope to never see him again, but if I have any biomechanical issues of any sort again, his will be the first number I call. If you’re in pain, see him.”
