Joanne Barber


Joanne BarberJoanne qualified as an Osteopath with a first class Honours Degree in Osteopathic Medicine and a Diploma in Osteopathy in 2000. She is registered with the General Osteopathic Council. Furthermore she has completed post-graduate training in Western Acupuncture and Cranial Osteopathy.

Having practiced full-time since qualifying, Joanne has developed an extensive knowledge base and utilizes a broad range of osteopathic clinical skills. Her approach in treatment is based on a biomechanical model of the body, treating the cause of an injury, not just the symptoms or the injured tissue.

Joanne has continued her professional development and training, studying Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation, a unique rehabilitation approach which achieves increased levels of improved function of the body. This approach has taught her to determine compromised positions of the body during activity, which potentially can lead to injury. By subtly changing the sequencing pattern of the muscles and improving the position of the joints during more strenuous activities such as lifting, injuries can be prevented.
