The Osteopathic Centre is jointly run by the directors Vaughan Cooper and Jenny Pritchard.

Jenny Pritchard

Jenny has been working here at The Osteopathic Centre since the summer of 2006, after moving from London. She is a graduate from the British School of Osteopathy where she obtained her degree. Having been accepted by the General Osteopathic Council she began her private practice work.

Jenny has a lighter touch than Vaughan which is more suitable for some patients. She enjoys treating all patients and has an interest in the treatment and care of expectant mothers. She has worked in the expectant mothers clinic, working on patients discomfort and helping them cope with changes in posture during and after the pregnancy.

In addition Jenny has experience in the treatment of a wide variety of problems, from work related strains to sports injuries.

"I am pleased to have helped people with long standing complaints, such as arthritis. Many of these patients have become less reliant on the use of analgesics (painkillers) which has improved their quality of life.

Patients with these types of condition have been able to maintain this improvement by having some maintenance treatment every few months."

"Most of the patients I treat are just like you and me. As well as treating a variety of patients I am keen to build up relations with local groups and is happy to give talks and discussions to your group if you are interested." Please contact the practice for more details.

Vaughan Cooper

I qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in 1988 and established a practice in Long Eaton, on the Nottingham / Derby border. The practice has grown over the years and is the longest established practice in the area, now entering its 21st year. I treat all forms of injuries, from work related strains and pains, to aches from your favourite hobbies, as well as sports injuries. With a background in athletics I have worked closely with local sports groups including athletics, football, rugby, gymnastics and trampoline. Over the years I have worked with many international, professional and national sports stars, as well as the local community .

I have previously worked with U.K. able bodied and disability athlete's based at Loughborough University. I have been the Osteopath to Nottingham Forest Football Club since 2005. I have also been the osteopath to Notts County Football Club till 2009 and Sheffield Wednesday Football Club.

From 2006 I have worked as a clinical tutor for the College of Osteopaths. I am responsible for supervising and teaching clinic based subjects to students on the Osteopathy degree course, at Stafford University, Stoke-on-Trent.

I am away from the practice one day a week, so please be patient if you cannot get an immediate appointment to see me.

Eleanor Glover

Ellie is an experienced osteopath qualifying from the British School of Osteopathy in 1986 and has worked in her own private practice in Beeston for many years. She joined The Osteopathic Centre in 2014 after having a few years off raising her children.

Ellie works in a very similar way to both Vaughan and Jenny using a hands on approach including soft tissue massage, articulation and manipulation to treat problems with the musculo-skeletal system.

She enjoys working with people across society ranging from teenagers through to the older generation.

In her personal life she is a very keen singer and enjoys challenging herself by learning through The Open University.

Hannah Beard

Hannah qualified as an Osteopath in August 2019 after training for five years with the College of Osteopaths in Stoke-On-Trent. Whilst working towards her qualification as an osteopath, Hannah was very active with her local rugby club where she gained experience of diagnosing and treating a variety of sports injuries.

Hannah has additional qualifications in lazer therapy, strapping and taping for sports injuries. Since qualifying Hannah has worked in private osteopathic clinics and for the NHS.

Hannah currently uses structural techniques but is interested in learning visceral and cranial techniques to broaden her scope of practice. Outside of work, Hannah is keen to be outdoors enjoying a variety of walking her dog, cycling, hill running and socialising with friends.
