The Osteopaths

Cambridgeshire osteopath Eliot Russell is passionate about the benefits of osteopathy for all, and offers a professional service in his local area. Building over 10 years of clinical experience in the NHS and private sector, this has allowed Eliot to build an extensive network of paraprofessionals to refer to.

Eliot trained at the European School of Osteopathy, one of the world’s leading osteopathic education centres.

"We believe osteopathy has an important contribution to make to people's health in many ways, from structural adjustment, treatment and advice to professional reassurance. Despite the common public perception that osteopaths only treat back and neck problems our training took us way beyond that! Our courses in anatomy, physiology and pathology were similar to those at orthodox medical schools, allowing us to make conventional clinical diagnoses, but we were trained specifically in order to give manual treatments."

Growing up in Cambridgeshire, Eliot’s aim has always been to have his own practice in his local area. From receiving NHS referrals, Eliot has developed an interest in the treatment of arthritis and age-related conditions, as well as specialising in the treatment and prevention of back pain.

"Osteopathy takes into consideration the various components of people’s lifestyle and allows me to build an overall picture of the stresses and strains imposed on their bodies. This allows me to treat them accordingly."

Eliot is a keen sportsman with an interest in football and squash, which he plays every week. He also loves golf and is always trying to lower his handicap! Because of this, he can appreciate the nature of sports injuries and understands the desire felt by many patients to return to playing as soon as possible.

"Pain usually presents itself after a build up of different circumstances such as poor posture, heavy gardening or trying a new golf swing. By identifying these compiling factors and treating the body, Osteopathy can be very effective in reducing pain and discomfort."
