Mr Darcy Jones gained his Diploma in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy in 1984 and has been in practice as a Registered Osteopath in Basingstoke and North Hampshire up to the present. He trained at a post-graduate level in Cranial Osteopathy from 1986 and has been combining conventional (structural) osteopathy with this more subtle cranial approach. He finds it beneficial for adults as well as some conditions such as colic and poor sleep patterns in babies.  

Darcy has good working relationships with a number of spinal and neuro-surgeons especially at Spine Works and The London Spine Clinic. This evolved because many patients with back or neck pain have underlying disc disease that is often poorly diagnosed and required a more specific multi-disciplinary treatment and management approach. Osteopathic manipulation (“clicking” or “popping” of spinal joints) in these cases is often counter productive and de-stabilises the spine. Darcy has extensive experience in the conservative management of back pain caused by spinal disc disease. 

Darcy is committed to ongoing, Continuing Professional Development and has attended many post-graduate courses, including Cranial Osteopathy, Neural Therapy (use of local anaesthetic injections) and Body-orientated Psychotherapy. Another area of interest for Darcy is yoga, which he practices himself and recommends to some patients who find it a very effective way of managing more long term back problems. By keeping up to date with advances in osteopathy Darcy ensures that patients receive the best possible treatment and advice.
