Graham graduated with a Masters of Osteopathy from Oxford Brookes University in 2013, and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council. Since graduating he has worked as an Osteopath in both the UK and New Zealand.
His treatment approach is structurally based with soft tissue and sports massage techniques, used alongside physical mobilisation and joint manipulation. He aims to work with the patient to not just to help with their pain, but also to help them understand their condition and empower them to take an active role in their recovery, providing tips and techniques to best support the treatments and also the patient’s specific daily needs.
Graham started providing sports massage treatment whilst studying to become an Osteopath, and he has found that it is helpful when used alongside of his Osteopathic mobilisation and manipulation techniques, allowing results to be better achieved and maintained. During his time working in New Zealand, Graham worked alongside some Chiropractors, which helped him incorporate some of the Chiropractic approach in to his Osteopathic treatment style.
Graham has been a keen sportsman throughout his life, having played football, cricket and basketball to a high standard at youth level, and currently continues to take part in a variety of recreational sports.
Through this he has developed particular interest in sports injury treatment, rehabilitation and prevention. He has worked pitch side with amateur teams in Rugby and Ultimate Frisbee, applying various types of sports taping techniques, including Kinesio Tape (K-Tape), performing acute injury diagnostics and treatment pitch side, along with longer term recovery and rehabilitative care assistance between games and training.
He is also a keen Snowboarder, and has worked a full ski season in Vancouver, Canada. This provided him with experience in treating different ski and snowboarding based injuries and gave him a greater understanding of how ski and snowboarding injuries can happen. It also provided insight in to how any pre-existing injuries and even any minor postural stresses or strains can potentially affect someone’s performance and enjoyment out on the slopes.
He is particularly interested in incorporating and developing his exercise rehabilitation and strength and conditioning skills to assist with treatment, allowing patients not only to continue their recovery at home with stretches and exercises, but also to promote injury recovery and injury prevention strategies outside of the treatment room.
