Andrew attended the Surrey Institute of Osteopathic medicine (SIOM) under the tutelage of Peter and graduated with a 2:1 honours degree. He has been working with the team at the King clinic since August 2010.
Whilst at SIOM, Andrew undertook a research proposal into the Form and Function of the Sacroiliac joint and the treatment of lower back pain with the use of Muscle Energy Techniques (active stretching of muscles). He uses a great deal of these stretches within his treatments and will offer advice to patients so that they may continue to improve after their treatment session. Andrew has also achieved good results with patients suffering from shoulder and neck pain, which he treats using manipulations, articulations and soft tissue techniques.
Before training as an osteopath, Andrew studied Sport and Exercise science to degree level, and has used that knowledge in his previous career as a circuit training and gym instructor. He is still involved in sport and regularly takes part in 10k running events and completed his first triathlon last year.
