“I Began working in rugby in 1995 and was part of a medical team at county, divisional and international level. I became Chair of the Osteopathic Sports Care Association in 2010, the same year I was appointed Clinical Lead Osteopath for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games. I was also Clinical Lead Osteopath at the Athletic and Para-Athletic IAAF World Championships London 2017. I have been the Osteopath at various multi-sport games including the first European Games 2015 and the World Muslim Games 2017 in Baku, and the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games 2017 in Ashgabat. I was the only overseas Osteopath to be invited to work at the Rio Olympic Games Central Medical Team in the Athletes Village.
The main themes of my training at BCOM: Osteopathic physical hands on treatment, exercise prescription, psychology and nutrition have all been shown to still be not only relevant today, but are now evidence-based. Although I have gone on to study certain areas e.g. rehabilitation to greater depth, the undergraduate education I received at BCOM has always stood me in good stead. Indeed, when working in multi-disciplinary clinics or lecturing around the world when asked to demonstrate osteopathic techniques, I still use many of the ones I learnt as an undergraduate at BCOM.”
