Since November 2017 I have teamed up with John Blatchford, who owns Poole Bay Osteopaths. As a qualified doctor and osteopath I bring a vast amount of knowledge, experience and skill to dealing with your problem.

My background is of a combined career of General Practice, Musculo-skeletal Medicine and Osteopathy. I now work purely as an osteopath, but my patients do benefit from my 30 years of knowledge and skills. Please see me with your sciatica, low back pain, neck strains and other joint problems. I can advise on orthopaedic and rheumatology issues in relation to spine and joint health.

Of note, I now also teach in London, at the London College of Osteopathic Medicine. My role there is as clinic tutor, where I train doctors to become osteopaths. I also teach them the theory and hands-on manipulation skills for the job.
