Osteopath & Medical Acupuncturist
Paul has been continuously involved in the field of natural health care provision for almost 40 years. Today he runs two busy practices in the West Midlands providing Osteopathy and Acupuncture. He maintains full registration with the following bodies: General Osteopathic Council (G.Os.C.), The British Medical Acupuncture Society (B.M.A.S).
• G.Os.C. Registration number 4/3367/F
• B.M.A.S. Registration number 05978
• Member of the British Acupuncture Association, Membership number: 2032
Paul has been able to encourage people to look after themselves, their families and even their pets using natural healthcare methods alongside the more familiar, orthodox methods. He says his aim is to ‘lead patients to get better quicker and stay well for longer’. To do this he invests his time and money in continuous training to always stay ahead.
In his search to better understand musculo-skeletal problems and how to fix them Paul has recently completed training with Gray Cook and Lee Burton, the founders of an innovative assessment screen and method of individualised corrective exercise prescription widely used by virtually all top flight sports teams and individuals. Paul is now able to offer the FMS (Functional Movement Screen) to produce individualised exercise prescriptions to help correct motor patterns ie movements which are contributing to reduced performance or pain.
For as long as I can remember I’ve always wanted to work with people and specifically with musculo sketetal health problems. Having looked at what was available to me in my home country, Romania, and elsewhere in Europe I settled on Coventry University to study as a Sports Therapist.
After three happy years studying in Coventry I graduated from Coventry University as a Sports Therapist with a First Class Honors degree and overall the highest grades in my year. Since graduating I have become a certified member of the Society of Sports Therapists.
Whilst at University I applied my skills in a number of sporting environments as well as working in the University clinic treating athletes, students, lecturers and members of the public.
However, my real-world education began when I joined the Backcare & Acupuncture practice in 2017. Today I work alongside Paul as an associate of the practice but only after three years of constant clinical supervision, informal teaching and regular attendance on a variety of post graduate courses ranging from lower limb assessment and orthotic prescription, to Musculo skeletal acupuncture, neurology and clinical communication skills and recently assisting in passing on those skills to the next crop of young practitioners who are standing where I stood some years ago.
