Since Silva qualified as an osteopath in 1999, she has been passionate about her work.
Her patients range from newborn babies to the older generations. Silva has a wide range of different treatment options in her tool kit, which allows her to personalise your treatment to your individual requirements.
Silva places great emphasis on explaining to you everything she does and how you sustained your injury. Additionally, she always gives self-help advice such as the use of ice packs, remedial exercises, postural advice, and dietary changes.
The best reward for her is when you get better quickly but she also loves the challenges of more difficult problems that require her to think “outside the box” and use all her skills to restore your wellbeing.
Silva became interested in how the body works when she regularly attended classes at a dance studio and noticed how much her body changed. She was told about osteopathy by an acquaintance and instantly knew that this was what she wanted to do. She has never looked back to the office jobs she left behind.
When Silva is not easing your aches and pains, she is busy looking after her five “children”, which are her two cats and three chickens. If she needs to get away from their antics, she is out and about with her local walking group or sitting quietly colouring in her mandala books. She is also volunteering with the Divinity Foundation, a charity that provides healthcare for impoverished people in Kenya.
