Following our introduction to Osteon@H2 we caught up with the team behind Osteon, Jimmy and Giles, for a chat about their history and hopes for the future.

Jimmy: My background is from years of running up and down football pitches and the injuries that come with it. Largely over the last few years cycling has become my preferred exercise and completing Duathlons (not triathlons – I don’t fancy swimming in the
Giles: I am a little different, having played rugby league at a national level for a number of years and having suffered almost every injury known to man, and received some very shoddy treatments I knew I could do better.

Are all your client’s sporting injuries?
Jimmy: Not at all, we can help with a whole host of conditions and problems, that’s why we always recommend that you come in for a free health check to have a chat with a therapist about the condition specific to you. We then can point you in the right direction to the therapy that best suits.
Do you do alternative treatments?
Jimmy: Absolutely, we wanted to give the members of H2 access to the very best in complimentary health care, we have Osteopathy, Physiotherapy and Sports Massage for all those aches and pains, injuries and rehab, then Podiatry for foot conditions, knee pain and bespoke custom made orthotics, and even Modern and Chinese Acupuncture.
Giles: So no matter whether where you have back pain, neck pain, a need to de-stress or reset your Chi we can help.
