Ergonomics and posture
"Life in general can create challenges for our musculoskeletal system, but with a mixture of direct osteopathic treatment, and sometimes a little education and advice, it can make all the difference"
Having always had an admiration for therapists who use their knowledge of the human structure to help ease musculoskeletal pain, I wanted to know more. So my journey to become an osteopath started when I shadowed an osteopath for several months, before embarking on a 4 year degree course at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in London.
I graduated in 2004 with a BSc Hons. in Osteopathic Medicine and with a diploma in Naturopathic medicine and quickly began working full time at John Lant and Partners in Chesterton Cambridge. I stayed there until 2017. It is here I met and worked with Emma for a couple of years. After the closure of John Lants practice I worked at the Coach House Clinic in Trumpington for 3 years, before being invited to join Emma at her Back to Your Feet Clinic.
During my years in practice I have loved working in Cambridge and have seen a range of patients of all ages and with a variety of musculoskeletal problems. The joy of being an osteopath is you never stop learning and much of my ongoing development and study is focused around improving osteopathic skills and knowledge regarding the human form.
I have particular interest in ergonomics and how for example a repeated posture can create strains and longer term aches and pains. Life in general can create challenges for our musculoskeletal system, but with a mixture of direct osteopathic treatment, and sometimes a little education and advice, it can make all the difference.
I am also mum to two young girls. I love to keep fit through running. I play the piano and love listening to music for down time.
