Chris Blackburne works with many performing artists including professional dancers and acrobat/trapeze artists treating biomechanical pain and injury. He is based at Chelsea Pharmacy Medical Clinic, London SW3 3DH.

“Over the last 10 years I’ve specialised in pain, injuries and dysfunction in the body’s Musculoskeletal System: bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue.

My passionate continuous research focuses on in-depth understanding of the context and causes of the injury or chronic disease in my field of expertise.

Through my personal 20 years of practicing Martial Arts (Wing Chun Kung Fu) and years of working with popular dance companies, ballets, circus and professional sports people – I understood that physical pain and discomfort is never that simple if the goal is to bring musculoskeletal system back to full working capacity.

Classic medical diagnostics strengthened by a functional medicine approach gives forward thinking osteopaths now great tools to identify both intrinsic causes and factors of the health problem, whether they are physical, environmental, psychological or nutritional.

Only working closely and attentively together with the patient, we may ensure highly tailored treatment programs, its successful implementation and long lasting results.”
