Kamila Barry
Kamila BarryOsteopath
Kamila graduated at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1999 with BSc Hons in Osteopathic Medicine and DO in Naturopathy and she has remained very passionate about her work and profession ever since.

She started her own practice in Bishops Stortford in 2004, whilst still working alongside some great osteopaths. In 2017 due to expansion, she relocated her clinic to new, bigger premises at Hockerill Court to offer a wider range of therapies and to add a special patient tailored rehabilitation.

Her patients usually display a range of many different conditions, often very complex and challenging, which require her to think outside the box and make use of her knowledge and experience, acquired over more than 20 years. Sometimes patients come to see her as their first port of call and sometimes they are referred by their GPs.
She uses a wide range of osteopathic techniques as well as dry needle acupuncture, ultrasound, which are suitable for treating children, adults and elderly patients.

Kamila is currently studying musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasonography and hope to be able to offer scanning services very soon at the practice to avoid long delays of referring patients for a scan through NHS.

Although born in Poland, Bishop’s Stortford has become her home town, where she lives with her husband and two young boys. She enjoys being a part of the community. When not working she likes travelling, scuba diving, motorbikes, gardening and good food.

Kamila is registered with the UK’s General Osteopathic Council and she is also a member of the Institute of Osteopathy.

Rosie
RosieThe Heart Of The Team
Rosie seems to fit many roles in our practice as we do not have space for receptionist. She is a fifteen-month-old Cockapoo, who has won the hearts of many of our patients and fits perfectly into our busy lives and small spaces!

I recently had terrible pain in my lower back and a friend recommended Kamila. I was a bit nervous at first as I had never been to an osteopath before and wasn’t sure what to expect. Kamila was so kind and caring and talked me through every stage of my treatment. I’m delighted to say my back is so much better and the exercises and posture advice Kamila gave me has been so helpful. Thanks Kamila!

I’ve just taken my 10 year old son to see Kamila. He had a fall in football training a few weeks ago and pulled a muscle which has become quite sore. Kamila was so kind and reassuring, she gave Seb a thorough examination and assured us both that no treatment was necessary, just rest. She gave him some simple stretching exercises to help keep his muscles supple. I would thoroughly recommend Kamila. Thank you!

I have seen Kamila on at least two important occasions; the first one after falling flat on my bump after slipping off a manhole cover in the centre of Bishop’s Stortford, smashing all four joints of my pelvis and being rushed to A&E with a suspected pelvis fracture. The Orthopaedic Consultant’s prognosis was that it would take me at least 6 months to recover fully. With Kamila’s help I was up and running within 2 months!

The second time I had to call upon her was following a rear ending car crash which gave me a serious whiplash. The pain was excruciating for a while and once again, Kamila’s treatment and subsequent exercises at home, under her guidance, helped me recover in record time.

A big thank you for your help and professionalism!, Your Content Goes Here

I’ve been seeing Kamila for back pain and sciatica, she’s always so understanding and caring and her treatment has got me back on the golf course again. Kamila’s treatment offers great value too.

I’m a fitness trainer and suffer from occasional lower back and hip pain. Kamila keeps my pain at bay with maintenance treatments and always assesses my pain every time I see her. I would thoroughly recommend osteopathy treatment and Kamila, thank you.
