Mike is clinic principal and osteopath at Oxford Osteopaths. He developed his expertise working in clinics in Oxford and London over ten years with a focus on sporting injuries. He trained at the London School of Osteopathy and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council
Mike's main area of interest is the musculoskeletal system, which includes posture, body alignment and the kinetic chain. His approach is to consider each person as unique, taking medical and personal history into account before deciding on the most appropriate course of treatment. He enjoys helping people understand why they might be in pain. He then uses proven techniques to improve movement, restore balance and therefore reduce discomfort.
Mike has always enjoyed solving problems and as well as osteopathy he has a degree in mathematics. The thing he enjoys most about working in clinic is meeting new people, finding out what makes them tick, and helping them feel better – nothing could be more rewarding than that.
When not working in clinic, or trying to keep up with his children, Mike can be found playing tennis at Oxford City tennis club, playing the trumpet or foraging for mushrooms in Bagley Woods.
