Rebecca graduated from the prestigious British School of Osteopathy in 2005. She is a keen sportswoman, who enjoys a wide range of sports, in particular, swimming in which she has competed from club through to national level. She also holds her ASA Swimming Teacher certificate and works with a variety of ages from very young children through to adults from beginners through to club level swimmers.
“I find osteopathy has helped me when working with swimmers as I have a greater understanding of how the body works and the pressures put upon it.
Having competed to a high level, I often received osteopathic treatment myself and found that I was able to continue training and return to competition much quicker. Osteopathy is based on certain core principles, which can be adapted & applied in all cases. This approach, I feel gives a deeper understanding & allows us to get closer to the cause, rather than just treating the symptoms. I feel it is important to consider all aspects of a person’s mind, body and environment, which will then enable me, as an osteopath, to enhance people’s health and wellbeing.
Due to my background I have a special interest in working with sports people to help them recover from/prevent injury and to enhance their training. I have worked with a wide variety of sporting people including; swimmers, golfers, rowers and tennis players with a range of presenting complaints.
I am currently working at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre, providing assessments and treatment a wide variety of elite athletes.
I have always had a strong interest in how the human body works and hope to continue to learn though my profession and develop my knowledge as a practioner.”
Radhika graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2013 with a Masters in Osteopathy and Diploma in Naturopathy. Since graduating Radhika has worked in various clinical settings which has enhanced her skills to treat complex cases and manage challenging patients in pain.
She routinely diagnoses and manages patients from a variety of backgrounds. Carrying out effective examination and diagnosis allows her to provide tailor made treatment catering for individual patient needs which has resulted in her receiving excellent patient feedback. Radhika focuses on assessing and treating incorrect biomechanical structures and improving function as a whole, not just looking at isolated areas of pain, which leads back to the fundamental principles of osteopathy. She also took the initiative to learn about dry needling and kinesio taping which she now provides routinely in practice.
