My main areas of interest are exercise prescription, biomechanics, core stability and postural imbalances causing recurrent low back pain.

I have a particular interest in treating complex shoulder injuries, sports injuries, and chronic low back pain.

In conjunction with Osteopathic techniques, I also use Myofascial Release Techniques and Medical Acupuncture.

I enjoy being able to combine both structural (soft tissue, joint mobilisations and stretches) and Cranial techniques (where appropriate), to provide patients with the benefits of both methods.

I am keen to take time to educate patients about their own condition and ways in which they can help themselves.

It’s important to promote recovery and prevent future problems arising.

I regard myself principally as a structural Osteopath treating a broad range of conditions.

Having completed a number of additional clinical courses (strapping and taping, lower limb biomechanics, laser therapy, manual handling and work place assessment including workstation set up).

I feel it provides my patients with a more three dimensional approach to treatment and rehabilitation.

M.Ost, PGCert, Specialist Paediatric Osteopathic Practice Paediatric Osteopath

I enjoy treating a wide range of patients, from babies through all ages, using a variety of structural techniques such a joint mobilisations, stretching and soft tissue massage. I feel it’s important to approach the body as a whole, focusing not just on the area of symptoms, but also looking into the root causes of pain.

Incorporating education, advice and exercises into my treatment, I also help work towards the prevention of problems in the future.
