Carol graduated from Staffordshire University with a bachelor’s degree in Sports Science in 1993 and went on to work within the fitness industry including working as a senior fitness consultant with BUPA, a personal trainer and a sports coach. However after suffering through injury herself and watching others struggle with injuries she became very interested in injury and rehabilitation and from there began training as an Osteopath. Carol graduated in July 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in Osteopathy following 5 years of study and 1,200 hours of supervised clinical practice. She is now registered with the General Osteopathic Council of Great Britain as well as the Ontario association of Osteopaths and the Nova Scotia Association of Osteopaths.
Although Carol has a good grounding in sports and biomechanics she treats far more than just sports injuries including issues associated with occupational strain, poor posture, whip lash, back pain, arthritis and headaches. She has a particular interest in treating shoulders, having completed a thesis on shoulder impingement and muscle function. Carol uses a wide range of osteopathic techniques and is happy to adapt to improve patient comfort and preferences.
