Joel Redman

Joel Redman – Osteopath

Joel joined us in 2013 initially as a masseur, before graduating from Oxford Brookes University as an osteopath. During his time at Brookes he caught the interest of James Ruddick who was lecturing and tutoring his year group at the time;

“In Osteopathy, as in other skilled professions, some students seem to have a natural flair for what they are studying, and in Joel’s case that was abundantly obvious. He has a kind and caring manner, which is well complemented by his attention to detail and drive to be as successful an osteopath he can be for his patients.” – James Ruddick

Joel works at Summertown Clinic 3 days a week, treating patients who present with a range of different problems from typical low back pain, to more challenging and complex cases. Having got a first in his dissertation on the osteopathic approach to headaches, and when not busy with his patients, he can often found in the staffroom with his head in a clinical textbook. Joel would describe himself as a structural osteopath, meaning that he has a predominately bio-mechanical approach to his patients, and uses a wide range of different osteopathic techniques, some of which he has studied further since qualifying. As a previous rugby player (and ardent Welsh supporter!) he played at a high level himself, and enjoys the challenge of treating sports people, as well as the more typical osteopathic patient.
