Chris graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in London, gaining a Masters degree in Osteopathy and since qualifying Chris has gone on to complete further training as a sports massage therapist. During his training, Chris experienced working with chronically ill patients in the Royal Free Hospital and in elderly homes in London, where he was treating a large variety of conditions.
Chris has a particular interest in sports injuries being a keen sportsman himself and since qualifying has treated professional and amateur sports teams and individuals. He joined the Osteopathy First team in 2011 and is recognised by all major private insurance companies including BUPA and AXA PPP. He was inspired to study Osteopathy thanks to all the great Osteopathy and rehab he received as a child following a spinal injury, which left him with nerve damage. Ever since he’s always had a passion to help others in the same way and show people you don’t have to “just live with it”
His special interests are in spinal injuries and neurological conditions. He has also carried out further training in shoulder injuries and enjoys working with complex patients, to address all their biomechanical issues. Chris has had great success with many hip complaints while working closely with consultant’s pre and post surgery. The aims of his treatments are to find the root cause of the issue and to restore his patients to their optimum, allowing them to improve their performance and achieve their goals, whether that's to walk down the road or to run a marathon.
