Chris qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in London in 1990, previously he studied at Sheffield University for a Dual Hons. BSc in Physiology/Biochemistry.
Chris is particularly interested in not only acute painful problems, but more so in long term correction to help prevent the likelihood of pain in the future.
This is done with many different treatment modalities, with a preference for more gentle approach. Osteopathic care also involves postural advice including in the workplace as well as at leisure & with sports. Advice on rehab and strength exercises also play a vital role in injury prevention.
Osteopathic treatment focuses on improving the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system.
Osteopathy employs a hands-on, holistic approach to the entire body, whereby the cause of the pain is acertained and treated accordingly.
Osteopaths are primary health care providers, which means that you don't need a general practitioner ís referral to see an osteopath.
Osteopaths are ACC Treatment Providers and are able to initiate a claim for cover if your problem is ACC related.
