Overview

About me

Will studied at the British School of Osteopathy, and graduated in June 2016 achieving a Masters in Osteopathy with distinction. He was awarded the J.K Hardy prize for his final year research project into the management of muscle soreness caused by exercise.
 
Over the past 6 years in practise, Will has worked with patients suffering with a range of conditions from everyday aches, back and neck pain, through to sports injury and post-surgical rehabilitation.

Will has a keen interest in treating Sports injuries. Currently, Will works with the English and British Karate Squads providing treatment and advice to the athletes as well providing immediate trauma care to athletes at national and international tournaments - most recently at the Junior European Championships in Budapest. He has also worked with Dartford Football Club (2018/2019 & 2019/2020 seasons) and with Welling United Football Club (2017/2018 season), leading the medical teams at both clubs.
 
He is also a qualified Sports Massage Therapist, holds a certificate in Sports Trauma Management, and is an accredited advisor for the United Kingdom Anti-Doping (UKAD) agency.

Further to his clinical work, Will currently works as a clinical educator at the University College of Osteopathy (formerly the British School of Osteopathy), supporting the education and training of student Osteopaths. He has previously held roles at the UCO including the course leader for the foundation courses and technique tutor (helping students develop the ‘hands-on’ skills associated with Osteopathy).
