Picking up lower back, shoulder, and hamstring injuries but not wanting to take a day away from playing for his teams, he received a number of treatments from a variety of therapists. As a youngster he was amazed people could understand the bodies anatomy and physiology enough to optimise the recovery process and get people back doing what they love quicker, and decided he wanted a similar career.
His approach to treating patients is simple. Making things less painful using hands-on techniques and giving patients lifestyle advice and exercise that is fun and applicable to the individual that gradual promotes stronger more resilient people. As well as treating patients as an osteopath, he enjoys encouraging people to be more proactive about their health & wellbeing. Arwel enjoys keeping active, playing rugby for the last 10 years, and starting Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and CrossFit in the last 12 months.
Arwel has spent a lot of time reading and researching the latest advances in pain science, rehabilitation, and injury mitigation, integrating this into his treatments. He hopes to spark others interests in keeping their body and mind healthy by taking small steps to improve their lifestyle, instead of falling into the easy, and unhealthy lifestyles that society currently lead us towards.
