Combining his passion for helping people with his interest in how the body works, Stephen decided to return to education at the height of the recession in early 2009. He also realised there was a huge need in Navan town for a therapist who could get to the root cause of people’s pain. In his clinic he treats many people with a wide range of ailments: from babies who suffer from reflux and colic to sports people, manual and office workers, pre and post pregnancy pains and age-related pains such as arthritis and osteoporosis. His youngest patient is two weeks old and his oldest is ninety-six years of age. Stephen says “Osteopathy is for everybody”.
Stephen has represented Ireland at international level in handball while in college and holds many medals for athletics, winning the 800 meters all-Ireland finals at underage. He also played GAA for both Kilmainhamwood and Nobber GFC and had a brief spell with Meath at minor level. Navan, Dunshaughlin, Kingscourt, Cormeen, Kells, and Bohermeen Athletic Club members all avail of Stephen’s services, as do the Nobber, Kilmainhamwood, Simonstown, Navan O’mahoneys, Wolfe Tones, Kingscourt, Duleek, Saint Vincent’s, Rathkenny and Dunderry football and hurling club members as well as members of the Walterstown and Dunsany ladies GAA clubs.
