Lazarus Nono Profile
Practitioner Types: Osteopath
Practitioner Profile:

Prior to graduating as an Osteopath in 1997, Lazarus trained in Classical Ballet, Jazz, and contemporary dance. His professional dance career ended due to knee injuries.

In 2014 Lazarus was awarded a Master’s degree in Performing Arts Medicine (PAM) a collaborative program between University College of London, The British Association for Performing Arts Medicine, Royal College of Music & Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and The Institute of Sport Exercise & Health. The course helped to further focus Lazarus’ understanding of performing arts-related injuries. Lazarus’ MSc research at UCL entitled: An investigation into the relationship between pre-jump foot positioning and its influence on jump height; was inspired by his knee injuries.

Alongside his broad practical experience gained from many years in Osteopathic practice treating a wide range of different musculoskeletal problems, and lecturing at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM). Lazarus continues to hone his skills by attending postgraduate Osteopathic lectures and Performing Arts courses organised by One Dance UK and The British Association for Performing Arts Medicine, further developing his understanding of the performing artist.

Lazarus has been fortunate to be able to return to UCL as a guest lecturer on the performing arts medicine course. In June 2018, he joined the British Association of Performing Arts Medicine, at their new clinic. The role involves assessing performing artists from all disciplines (Musicians, Dancers, Actors and stage support) with the objective of diagnosing, and where appropriate referring to other healthcare disciplines. Also recommending exercises or other methods of working to manage or alleviate the performer’s presenting problem.

Lazarus has been a senior clinic tutor at the BCOM since 2002. Among his many teaching / clinical duties at the College, Lazarus has also been integral to setting up performing arts education / clinical supervision at the college.

Lazarus is happy to offer two treatments for the price of one after the initial consultation for the following:
1. Full or part-time students
2. Professional performing artist between jobs
3. All members of One Dance UK
Lazarus is happy to supervise the treatment of performing artist at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine on, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
