I. Greet. I’m Mike Doyle. I’m a Osteopath at _______. I’m here to talk about my passion which is helping to repair and maintain people! N. It’s a good thing for you that you are here because... T. I’ll be talking for about ___ minutes after which there will be time for Q&A R. I really want to talk to you about three things today which I think will really resonate with you golfers/boxers F.I.T.B. O. By the end of my talk you’ll understand: - 1) What an osteopath is. 2) The relationship between osteopathy and golfing / cycling / boxing F.I.T.B. 3) The benefits of osteopaths over GPs.
Three things: What Osteopathy is and what it is not? (a definition) – 3 SLIDES How your sport (Golfing / boxing / weights / fill in the blank!) can increase your need for osteopathic treatment / maintenance. Why a visit to my clinic COULD BE as important as a visit to your GP Finally (technically a fourth thing!) Terminology – the human body is very complex and 15 years ago I did not know too much about it. I am going to make the assumption that, like me back then, you do not know what a zygapophyseal or sacroiliac is… I am going to use plain english. I will use non complex terminology such as joint,,, tendon,,,muscle,,,ligament Etc. Is that fair for today?
How and why I got into osteopathy (nothing else worked) You know when you find something that is good...that works... And you become so passionate about it... You want to share it with EVERYONE right? Well that’s what happened to me... London every weekend Working all hours Practiced on anyone and everyone I could find Fun story about trying to get models!!!
I realised that i could be all I wanted to be again. I realise that other people can be all they want to be again.
It’s about being pain free. It’s about being flexible. It’s about being all that you can be... [Pause] ...all that you can be.
As I mentioned earlier; its not just about repairing and fixing people. Some of my clients have been benefitting from a longer term maintenance... Because they enjoy the way osteopathy makes them feel.... ...in other words they discovered something that quite literally unlocks them. And they feel alive again. Imagine that?
This is the Who...? I don’t mean the popular music band from the 70s and 80s! I think there was only 3 of them. No... These are the people we repair (and maintain). Everyday people. Just like you. They do jobs. They do sports. They hurt themselves lifting. They pulled their muscle or realised they got RSI.
I’m gonna tell you about three things here – naturally we don’t have time to go through ailment/condition. So I’m gonna say a little about 3 things: - Pain Maintenance What happens on your first visit to me – how the repair or maintenance process begins. How their sport affects them in the main What is the MAIN relationship between their sport’s common injuries and osetopathy? No more than 3 slides to go through this. EG Footballers – Knees – what can osteopathy do? EG Golfers – Backs – what can osteopathy do? EG Boxing – Necks – what can osteopathy do?
Talk about their passion – get them excited. Shock them with some hard facts about how their ‘lovely’ sport can debilitate them! Remember the car commercial I showed you?! Talk about early symptoms – the “twinge” in the back / wrist / leg / can be early warning signs
Mike you know all about this! I know nothing.
Okay so here’s one condition.. Mike a few words on this?
About how Osteopaths can help maintain health/fitness/lucidity/flexibility etc So that people can keep doing what they LOVE doing for l-o-n-g-e-r. (Golf, boxing, etc.)
This section is about the comparison between GPs and Osteopaths. I’m NOT going to answer that. You are intelligent people – you WILL make up your own minds. I’m going to show you three slides which will at least give you knowledge that will enable you to make the best choice for you.
From root to fruit! Two timelines indicating the processes involved
I demonstrated the diagnostic timelines – visiting the GP can be a nightmare in terms of waiting times. Budgets are being slashed. Every surgery trying to economise. Lengthy waiting times. Coupled with cost cutting. Q. Has anyone ever experienced dissatisfaction going along the NHS route? Q. Anyone feel like they’ve been going around in circles?
This is about the benefits of the reduction of potentially harmful medications as a result of having osteopathic treatment. From previous presentation: - “ The use of medications was sharply lower [sometimes less than half] by the osteopathic patients. The results of this trial suggest that it is possible to obtain similar therapeutic relief from back pain with substantially less medication, a highly significant finding in light of the well-known and sometimes fatal side-effects obtained with Anti-inflammatories.” Roth S. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: Gastropathy, deaths and medical practice. Annals of Internal Medicine 1988; 109: 353-354.
Oh and you should know that osteopaths are trained to spot red flags... “And there are many.” Lower back pain for instance can be indicative of over ______ different serious illnesses. So perhaps not just LBP. I’m trained to spot this as a potential red flag and, refer you accordingly. Detailed case history Clinical examination Pathology exclusion X-ray and scan results GP referral information
Original slide notes: - There is strong evidence that manipulation is more effective than a placebo treatment.... There is moderate evidence that manipulation is more effective for chronic LBP than usual care by the general practitioner, bed-rest, analgesia, and massage. Van Tulder M, Koes BW, Bouter LM.
