Hurstbourne Osteopathy

Sponsoring Local Sporting Talent

Steve is proud to sponsor elite sporting star Jo Bassett, an international horse driving trialist, by providing her with osteopathic and sports injury treatment.

Though not as physically demanding as riding, driving requires a lot of upper body strength, and the fast paced obstacle driving is often over rough terrain with tight turns making it easy to pull a muscle. And of course there are all the usual strains and stresses that come with owning a horse.

Jo says:
“I have represented Great Britain Junior teams for the last few years and am currently leading my area in the winter points league, and in contention to win another area on the indoor circuit. To maintain this standard I have to ensure both my pony and I are as healthy as possible. I’m hyper-mobile so with horses this is a constant battle!

Steve has been immensely helpful in keeping me fit and capable of competing. Not only has he improved my stability through my back he has also given me advice on which muscles to focus on to improve their strength and exercises to achieve this.

I cannot put into words how grateful I am for his support, through the last year I have gone from needing multiple visits a week to just one every month to six weeks. Not only has this allowed me to concentrate on competing and the ability to train as much as needed, my greater strength through my back has given me the confidence to push myself as much as needed in competition, without having to worry of any repercussions.”
