I graduated from Swansea University with a Masters degree in Osteopathy (M.Ost). I have a keen interest in a range of musculo-skeletal problems, chronic injuries, and how work-related activities can lead to pain and dysfunction. I believe that many of these problems can be aided through tailored treatment and exercise prescription that will aid the functioning of the body as a unit. I have completed further training in Kinesio-taping and will soon be attending a course in dry needling which can be used in addition to osteopathic treatment for a range of overuse and sports injuries. I enjoy treating a wide-range of patients with varying conditions and symptoms.
My Osteopathy Story
I initially became interested in Osteopathy when I was a teenager and my father suffered from recurrent bouts of sciatica. After being prescribed medications which had minimal affect, he finally went to see an Osteopath. After just a few visits there had been significant improvements to his pain levels, and the Osteopath was also addressing the cause of the problem to help prevent recurrence.
I enjoyed the thought of being able to offer people an alternative treatment option to surgical or pharmaceutical and decided to train as an Osteopath. I have never looked back since this decision. I enjoy treating a wide range of patients and being able to adapt treatment to address their particular needs. There is nothing more satisfying to me than seeing a transformation in patients who have previously been in pain and can now enjoy and continue with their everyday lives.
