Keri Devonport, Registered Osteopath in Wokingham

Qualifications: BSc Osteopathic Medicine (Hons)

Keri Devonport (née Long) has been living in Wokingham since she was 12 years old and has been practising as an osteopath in Wokingham for 12 years. She has worked in a variety of clinics, including Pangbourne, Reading, Theale and Walton-on-Thames.

What influenced you to study and practice Osteopathy?

My career goals have always been focused around becoming an osteopath. A family member mentioned Osteopathy to me long before the difficult days of any teenager trying to decide what to do with their life. I always knew that an office role would not suit me; this, coupled with my desire to help people led me onto my path of studying Osteopathy.

Where did you study Osteopathy?

I completed my 4 year degree at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine. Being more of ‘small town’ girl rather than a ‘city’ girl, London was a fairly daunting place at first. However, I soon made friends with some great like-minded people, many of whom I still hold dear. BCOM is a well established, well-rounded college of Osteopathy. The student clinic offered a wide range of patient to treat from the very young, to the elderly. This gave me a large amount of experience treatment patients from different backgrounds before I had even graduated!

What is your treatment style?

I utilise both structural and cranial methodologies in my treatments depending on the patient and how they present in the clinic. Frequently I draw on both styles as they naturally compliment each other.

Tell us something about yourself

As you may have already read, I am Matt’s wife. As of April 2018 I have recently come back to work after a year of being a full-time mother to our son, Logan. I am very excited to work alongside Matt and hope my skills can add to, as well as compliment his successful and welcoming clinic.

What do Keri’s patients say about her treatment?

Nikki F.Nikki F. ★★★★★ We saw Keri for a combined cranial osteopath and infant feeding session. Keri was very supportive, listened and gave us valuable personalised advice which has made breast feeding much easier and less painful. Would highly recommend.Francesca M.Francesca M. ★★★★★ We had a really good experience with Kerri in treating my baby boy. She was very knowledgeable and he warmed to her straight away. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to Wokingham Osteopaths with any future treatment needs.Dr Saqib C.Dr Saqib C. ★★★★★ so where should I start from... Matt has been absolutely spectacular as a professional and passionate osteopath with utmost care and treatment focused attention on his patients. I initially went for my back ache and sciatic pain as I have a chronic sacral vertebral issue. After a few sessions (literally like two session fortnight apart) my back was brand new. Then as a sportsman and a doctor myself, things never stop ... shoulder spur along with neck and then again the solution was Matt and his magical osteopathy. For the last one year, I have been visiting here sometimes once a month and if I need proper MOT done then even fortnightly and I can assure the readers that this family run business is awesome. My wife has had wonders with Kerry in terms of relieving her frozen shoulder which in medical terms cannot be thawed before 12-18 months and here is my wife with frozen shoulder started to thaw in 3-4 months and perfectly able to lift her hand and do stuff within 6-8 months. I would highly recommend them as osteopaths. Good, High skill Osteopaths are hard to find and we are lucky to have them here in Wokingham. Thank you Matt, Kerry and your team for being so wonderful every time.Emily M.Emily M. ★★★★★ Keri was very approachable and friendly and listened well to all the issues we had with our son’s feeding. Keri was thorough with her assessment. We would definitely recommend to anyone experiencing breastfeeding problems.Laura B.Laura B. ★★★★★ We saw Keri when my little boy was just over 3 months. She helped us identify the issues with his feeding and with gentle coaching and support we were able to continue breastfeeding with confidence. Her feeding knowledge and massage techniques were so helpful for us and I would say that after our appointments my mental health definitely improved. I cannot thank Keri enough for helping my son feel more comfortable and supporting me to keep breastfeeding. I now intend to keep going until he decides he is ready to stop, something I didn't think would be possible before.Amber R.Amber R. ★★★★★ Keri is a fantastic, caring and considerate osteopath. My 5 month old seemed to have limited mobility in her neck which we felt was preventing her from rolling properly - after a couple of sessions with Keri her neck mobility is much improved and she was rolling straight after! Keri has a gentle, patient approach and takes the time to find out all context and history before treatment. Thank you for your help Keri.Tracy K.Tracy K. ★★★★★ I cannot recommend Wokingham Osteopaths highly enough.

Thank youAndrew Robin - known as Robin E.Andrew Robin - known as Robin E. ★★★★★ Thanks Matt & KeriFrankie GFrankie G ★★★★★ After a recurring rugby injury got the better of my shoulder, i visited Wokingham Osteopaths as they're local to where i work. Upon arrival, they were super friendly and made me feel very welcome.Kerri was my Osteopath and went above and beyond what i had expected in terms of treatment and explanation as well as advice for the coming weeks. With time to spare, Kerri managed to treat me with a shoulder AND neck massage as well, to help relieve any accumulated tension during my injury.Fortunately i am already doing better and able to return to training and the gym but I would definitely return again, should i need to.Recommending to all the Rugby boys!!LaneyLaney ★★★★★ I have recently had a session with Keri due to picking up a very painful back injury. I did not think that after 1 session I would be made to feel so comfortable and pain free! The relief was so fast and so amazing! I can not recommend highly enough! 5 plus stars all the way! Thank you Keri 🙂Response from the ownerHi Laney, thanks so much for the kind words and it was my pleasure, looking forward to catching up next time. Keri Laura M.Laura M. ★★★★★ I have been treated by both Matt and Keri in the past. Absolutely fantastic. Cannot recommend enough!Response from the ownerHi Laura, thanks for the review, always happy to help. Dave PDave P ★★★★★ Highly recommended!! (Treatment session by Keri) ... I put my back out last week and was stranded in bed for the first couple of days. I called Wokingham Osteopaths after finding them on Google and Matt was able to squeeze me in for an appointment with Keri yesterday. Keri was very friendly and helpful - she did a very thorough assessment of my condition and this was followed by 30 minutes of treatment. My back was improving gradually prior to the appointment but I feel like Keri worked wonders accelerating the speed of recovery. This morning my back felt the best it has for a week - by far! Keri also recommended some stretches and exercises to continue with at home, which also seem to be helping my recovery. From my first experience I highly recommend Wokingham Osteopaths and I will definitely go to them as my first source of help in future!Response from the ownerThanks for the review Dave, it was great working with you and we're happy you responded so quickly to Keri's treatment. js_loader
