My path to osteopathy began before I was born. My grandfather, William Grunbaum, was an osteopath graduating from the British School of Osteopathy in 1948. William had two children, Jane (aunt) and Paul (father). Jane qualified as an osteopath and has been practising for over 50 years. Paul qualified as a solicitor before qualifying as an osteopath. Jane's first born daughter Caroline (cousin) qualified as an osteopath and has been practicing for over 20 years. I followed on becoming the 5th member of the family to qualify as an osteopath and joining Caroline as a 3rd generation osteopath

Before studying osteopathy, I studied Sports and Exercise Science at the University of Birmingham. Whilst playing for Birmingham University basketball team I was injured, tearing my medial meniscus and partially tearing my anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). This ignited my passion for post injury treatment, and injury prevention training

I completed a personal training course at REPs level 3 with Future Fit Training whilst studying osteopathy. This gave me the knowledge to give patients effective exercises to help them maintain and self manage their pain.

After qualifying as an osteopath I took acupuncture courses with the British Medical Acupuncture Society to further my knowledge and increase my range of treatments that I could provide.

During my time qualified as an osteopath I have worked with Barnet Football Club and have treated members of the Great Britain Talent squad for synchronised swimming.

I regularly donate time and money to charities, including volunteering for Maccabi Great Britain as a basketball coach since 2008. Since then I have been:
  • Head coach of the Girls under 19 basketball squad to 18th World Maccabiah Games in Israel (Summer 2009)
  • Head coach of the Boys under 17 basketball in European Maccabiah Games in Vienna, Austria, (Summer 2011)
  • Head coach of the Boys under 19 basketball squad finishing in 7th place at the 19th World Maccabiah Games, (Summer 2013)
  • Osteopath for the Great Britain Women's Open Netball squad at the 20th Maccabiah Games (Summer 2017)

In 2011 I completed the London marathon 2011 raising over £2500 for charity.

You can regularly see me offering osteopathic or personal training sessions to be raffled off at charity events. 

Since my mid teens I have been involved in Great Britain Maccabi. I represented them in international basketball competitions held in USA and Israel, captaining the squad during the Israel tournament in 2001. 
I also enjoyed played basketball for my school as vice captain and whilst at university.

I ran the London marathon in 2011 finishing in 4 hours 12 minutes 58 seconds.

In 2013 I ran the Royal Parks Half Marathon finishing in 1 hour 42 minutes 39 seconds

Following that I ran the Tel Aviv marathon in 2014 and beat my previous time to finish in 3 hours 43 minutes and 54 seconds.

I teach my own accredited Personal Training Course in conjunction with JLGB and JW3.

I was fortunate enough to be featured in Your Fitness Magazine and Health and Fitness Magazine.

In 2015 I took over as head coach for LSE Men's Basketball finishing the 2015/16 season second in the league, reaching the semi finals of the BUCS cup and with a 10 win 4 loss record.

The following season LSE finished top of our division as well as winning the BUCS cup and an Invitational Cup held in Paris. We finished our season with a respectable 19 win 2 loss record.

In the Summer of 2017 I went with the Maccabi GB delegation to the 20th Maccabiah Games in Israel. I was part of an 11 strong medical team treating athletes participating in sports such as rowing, table tennis, tennis, netball, swimming and triathlon.

I was fortunate enough to come away with a silver medal which the GB open Netball team won.
