Caroline is a Registered Osteopath with the General Osteopathic Council, and a member of the Institute of Osteopathy. She gained a Masters of Osteopathy from Leeds Metropolitan University and is also a qualified Rehabilitation Pilates Instructor.
She has undertaken further courses in Cranial Osteopathy, Paediatric Osteopathy and Kinesio-taping. Cranial Osteopaths use highly developed palpation (touch) to feel changes in the tension of particular joints and tissues. Using the cranial approach in osteopathy is very gentle, safe and relaxing, so is often a preferred technique for babies and children.
Kinesio-taping is a form of sports taping which you may have seen on athletes at the Olympics, footballers, or at Wimbledon; it can be used for almost any sporting injury, postural complaint or even lower back pain. It lasts for around 5 days and can be worn in the shower, giving extra support and strength to the muscles and joints that have been affected by your injury." Caroline was drawn to Osteopathy from an early age due to members of her family going for treatment and having a great response to treatment. She was therefore able to appreciate the importance of specific treatment plans for each individual patient, which she continues to emphasise in my own practice today. She enjoys treating patients of all ages, with any musculoskeletal or sporting injury; and has a special interest in joint hypermobility.
Caroline is committed to delivering the most efficient and effective osteopathic treatment; whilst assessing, treating and advising each patient for their specific needs, incorporating Pilates exercises for improved rehabilitation.
