Students from the College of West Anglia who aim for a career in osteopathy were inspired during an osteopath visit.
Ian Plested, principal osteopath at Fenland Osteopaths, met sports science students at CWA's sports campus in King's Lynn, reflecting on his experience with patients while discussing the benefits that a range of treatments can offer.
Ian said: "Finding relief that does not involve more medication can lead to frustration and a host of side effects that can often accompany medication.
"My experience as an osteopath has rewarded me with countless patients who are amazed how osteopathy has brought them long term relief from pain."
One student was pleased with the visit and said: "It gave me a higher understanding and knowledge of the subject."
