Amanda Miles BSc (Hons) Ost
Amanda is a Chelmsford based osteopath who has been involved in patient care for over fifteen years. She graduated from the London School of Osteopathy with a first-class honours degree in 2005, and prior to that worked for three years at two Chelmsford osteopathic clinics treating patients using therapeutic and sports massage whilst completing her osteopathic training. As an osteopath, Amanda opened her own clinic, Oaklea Osteopathy in 2005, and initially combined that with working at Rochford Road Clinic with Anne Gibbons. Since the sad closure of Rochford Road Clinic due to Anne's illness, Amanda has provided osteopathic care for her patients solely at Oaklea Osteoapthy.
Prior to becoming an osteopath, Amanda worked as an HR Manager in London for ten years. The decision to embark on a second career came after a long period of time with low back problems herself which resulted in spinal surgery. That experience, and the excellent after care she received from a local osteopath, led to the decision to train to be an osteopath herself. Amanda is well placed to empathise with her patients, and fully understands the fear, uncertainty and frustration that can accompany a period of debilitating pain with the impact it can have on patients' lives.
After qualifying as an osteopath, Amanda undertook additional training in western acupuncture (dry needling) and therapeutic ultrasound to provide her patients with further treatment options to maximise their recovery. Each year she attends continuing professional development (CPD) training to remain up to date with relevant osteopathic and clinical healthcare developments. She has also trained in workplace ergonomic assessment to help patients deal with the postural challenges of office-based working.
Amanda’s approach to osteopathy is to combine gentle treatment with advice about how patients can help themselves at home or work, as well as providing exercises to help their recovery when appropriate. Patients always receive an honest appraisal of how osteopathy can help. If Amanda thinks further medical investigation may be needed, she will discuss that with patients and can also help by liaising directly with GPs or other medical professionals if necessary. This is of course only done with a patient's consent.

“I have had treatments when my back is very sore and have always been pleased with the results.
Amanda is very professional in a relaxed way and explains all treatments and on-going exercises.
I am very happy to be treated at Oaklea Osteopathy and to recommend Amanda.”
