Michael Robson M(Ost)
I was introduced to the positive aspects of Osteopathy after sustaining many injuries whilst playing County Badminton. I soon realised that the holistic treatment of the whole body not only speeded up my recovery from injury, but also more importantly prevented further injuries. The success of the treatment, and speed of my recovery, initiated my interest in this profession.
Since graduating from university In 2012 I have completed many courses, including Sutherland Cranial College module 1 & 2, advanced Kinesio taping and western medical acupuncture to introduce a diversity of treatments. I am currently studying for a diploma in Nutrition.
In the past I have worked in busy clinics alongside podiatrists, physiotherapists, sports therapists, foot surgeons and running coaches all of which has helped me improve my understanding of the human body, as well as liaising with G.P.s, dietician and dentists within my family, to exchange and update information.
In the summer of 2022 I was asked to be part of the medical team for the Birmingham Commonwealth Games. This was a great experience treating some of the best athletes in the world.
My aim is to keep patients as healthy, mobile and as pain free as possible; using a variety of hands on techniques, including soft tissue work, articulation, muscle energy techniques and manipulation; as well as taping, acupuncture, cranial and stretching/strengthening exercises at home to help maintain health.
I am originally from Sunderland and support the football team religiously. In my spare time I like to try and keep fit by cycling, running, going to the gym and playing badminton for Horsforth.
