Patrick Norman - Osteopath

Patrick is committed to providing a whole body approach to your recovery. This involves carefully looking at your posture, flexibility and lifestyle to detect all the factors which contribute to your condition.

“It is rare that an injury is only down to the awkward movement or moment in which it starts. Most problems consist of any number of negative influences which result in a problem developing.”

By using this philosophy, Patrick carefully constructs a plan of treatment and advice not only to treat your symptoms but also to help prevent recurrent episodes. Where appropriate, Patrick will give detailed advice on stretching and exercise to help your recovery.

Patrick is a keen triathlete and has enjoyed running and playing rugby competitively in the past. He uses his knowledge of the body and the psychology of sport to treat sports injuries more effectively.

 

Kate Shilland -  MSc. Nutritionist with a Special Interest in Sports Nutrition

As a registered Nutritionist with an MSc in Nutrition, my key values are to address my clients as individuals and apply the most up to date scientific based evidence to develop personal nutritional plans tailored to your specific needs and goals.

There are so many fad diets around and people are constantly being bombarded with advice, ‘facts’ and bold claims about nutrition and health that are largely unsupported by scientific research.  Contrary to what we are led to believe, there is no effective blanket approach to nutrition, therefore,I aim to educate my clients to help you make informed choices that will suit your individual needs, lifestyles and performance goals.
