In addition to the usual back and neck complaints, Patrick specialises in treating stubborn chronic injuries and sport-related injury or performance issues. His treatments focus heavily on biomechanical and functional assessment to build a well-rounded picture of how your body is being used and how your injury fits into this context. This generally includes: active and passive movement assessment (including sporting movements), gait evaluation, muscle power assessment, orthopaedic testing and palpation of the muscle and joint tissue.
Treatment will then be specifically tailored to suit both the acute management of your symptoms and to address any specific functional imbalances that may underlie the development of the injury, and generally are evenly balanced between manual and exercise therapy. Due to the physical nature of the session, please bring clothing that is non-restrictive and will easily allow examination of the affected body part.
Patrick qualified in 2014 with a Master of Osteopathy (Merit) from the London School of Osteopathy. After qualifying, he went on to study sport and exercise rehabilitation and injury management, initially completing a post graduate diploma in Sport and Exercise Medicine (PgDip SEM) and culminating in his award of his MSc (Distinction) in Sport and Exercise Medicine from the University of South Wales. In addition to his formal qualifications, he has undertaken professional qualifications in: electrotherapy (therapeutic ultrasound, laser and muscle stimulation), ultrasound imaging, acupuncture, strength and conditioning, pilates instruction and the management of endurance athletes.
