Case history taking encompasses a detailed understanding of your specific sport and training programme and the principles of particular movements which may be predisposing you to; or maintaining injury.  Osteopathic assessment and Osteopathic examination will consider and further your current knowledge and further develop your training programme for enhanced well-being and self-healing and motivation to inspire and impact in gentle and profound ways upon your life.

Osteopathy for Athletes and Sports Injuries

Osteopathic principles and practice encompass and utilise a profound, gentle and wise application of the hands using palpation skills, for the ‘listening hands’ of the Osteopath permit a deeper listening and understanding of the body tissues and the inter-relationship of the anatomy and physiology, health and well-being of the person. Osteopathic principles and techniques are adapted to each individual.

An experienced fell-walker who turned her love for the mountains into exploring and developing her love for climbing; Carolyn McGregor maintains a passion for wild places, nature and living in such landscapes. Map reading and navigation skills for mountains was furthered by developing skills in marine navigation; weather skills for the mountains and sea, developing wild camping and bush craft understanding which enabled solo travel by sea kayak along the Norwegian coast-line, fjiords and mountains during 2007 and Carolyn has continued her quiet journeys in wild places ever since.
