Clinic Principal and Registered Osteopath
Having worked in the pharmaceutical industry for many years, Gordon graduated from the College of Osteopaths in London with the College’s Clinical Distinction award, adding Osteopathy to his prior qualifications in Sports Injury & Sports Massage and Soft Tissue Manipulation gained through the Association of Physical and Natural Therapists and the British Osteopathic Association, respectively.
In practice Gordon treats patients of all ages with the aim of getting patients back to health as quickly as possible by providing effective osteopathic treatment centred around a realistic management plan tailored to meet the individual needs, age, occupation, leisure activity and lifestyle of the patient. He understands that the health and well-being of an individual depends on all parts of the body working in balance and that there is an important link between the structure of the body, the way it functions and how it then adapts to the excessive stresses and strains of the individual's everyday life.
Having played first rugby class rugby (London Scottish, Newcastle Gosforth and Cambridge) Gordon understands the challenges and frustrations both the elite and leisure athlete face when the inevitable injury strikes. Gordon has a special interest in treating sportsmen and women of all levels to help them get back on the field as quickly as possible with appropriate injury rehabilitation and prevention strategies in place.
Gordon continues his professional development with a special interest in treating shoulder problems, minimally invasive manipulation techniques and cranial osteopathy. He has recently completed a Edinburgh to London charity bike ride, is learning to row (rowing and sculling) and continues his life long challenges with trying to being a better golfer. He is married to Kate and father of 3 great children Euan, Fraser and Freya, who make him proud every day.
