I have always been a sports enthusiast, practicing martial arts, weight training and running from an early age. Several years ago, I had the misfortune of injuring a disc in my spine. It was due to this that I first came into contact with Osteopathy. It was this 'Science and Art' that nurtured me back to health and avoided the need for complex surgical intervention. I therefore became very interested in learning this method so that I could help others in the same way.
I graduated from the London School of Osteopathy in 2004 with a BSc (Hons) Degree in Osteopathy. Whilst initially focusing on the structural approach, I now also incorporate visceral, cranial techniques, acupuncture and electrotherapy into my treatment repertoire. In addition, I have a keen interest in exercise prescription, rehabilitation and nutrition.
Conditions commonly responsive to osteopathic treatment include:
- Neck, upper and lower back pain or stiffness
- Spinal problems, such as disc or joint dysfunctions
- Problems with hips, shoulders, knees and feet
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Muscle strains
- Sports injuries
- Problems related to the body's wear and tear, as we grow older
- Occupational related postural problems, etc.
I have also held the posts of Lecturer and Clinic Tutor at the London School of Osteopathy since 2008. This has enabled me to oversee the treatment of a large number of patients with different conditions, allowing me to gain a wealth of experience in treating people from various walks of life.
Finally, if I was asked to describe my treatment approach, I would say: "I aspire to be holistic; find out the source of the problem and work towards restoring and optimizing health."
