I first fell in love with Osteopathy as a young child when my knee pain would not dissipate after a fall. After exploring various areas of care my mother took me to see an Osteopath, where like a detective they managed to find the cause of my pain and resolve it. I treat every patient as a completely new case and having the ability to make a positive change is something I take great pleasure in doing.
I have no favourite patient type and enjoy treating all ages with any problem, from picking up a watering can in an odd way, pregnancy, poor desk posture, or pain when participating in activity.
I enjoy all sorts of activities and love a challenge, having completed Tough Mudder, various competitions and a triathlon. From participating in a number of sports from a young age I understand the mechanism from which injuries can arise and the mental and physical rehabilitation processes necessary to return to sport.
Having seen a large variety of patients during my training it became clear that the patient understanding of what the injury is and how to manage it, is just as important as the treatment itself. This especially became clear to me whilst treating a young adolescent girl diagnosed with Scoliosis (curve of the spine), a subject I used as a topic for my dissertation. We will always work as team to ensure you make the best recovery specific to you.
