I re located to Armitage from London and started my practice here in 2011. I qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in 2002.
The healing capacity of the body never ceases to amaze me, and I thoroughly enjoy my work as an Osteopath.
I am a structural Osteopath, working with soft tissue, articulation, mobilisation, and stretching techniques, and I am often keen to suggest exercises to speed up recovery and build strength.
I am treating more neck and shoulder problems recently due to the amount of time many people spend at computers.
To get people better is my aim, or if need be, to refer them to the appropriate health professional for further treatment.
I graduated in 2015 from the British School of Osteopathy, now the University college of Osteopathy (UCO) in London. It is Europe’s oldest university for Osteopathy. My enthusiasm for Osteopathy was sparked by a story of a friend who was helped by an osteopath. The osteopath had found and successfully treated the reason why she had been suffering from intense headaches. Traditional medicine had only helped her with pain management.
I was fascinated by the approach this healthcare practitioner had towards pain, the drive to search and find the cause of discomfort and to relieve it. This inspired me enough to come from Wolfsburg, in Germany, to London to go through 4 years of training to become a musculoskeletal specialist.
Your initial consultation with me will include questions about the issue that brings you to see me, and questions about your general health to help put the issue you are dealing with into context of you as a person. Following from there we move to various active and passive tests that help add clarity. The outcome of this approach helps me inform my treatment and management plan for your health. Treatment then follows and we finish off with little tips to make life easier. I am always happy to answer any questions that may arise during the consultation or even in general.
Although I have successfully treated and helped different sports people ranging from Gymnasts, hand ballers to golfers and rugby players, I feel that specialising on any one patient group would deprive me of the joy of learning more and evolving further. I am just as confident to helping expectant mothers as the person that is struggling just getting to the shops and back.
I look forward to seeing you in clinic.
