Gary Hickling MOst FAFS GOsC
Osteopath and Movement Specialist
Gary graduated with a Masters degree from the University College of Osteopathy, and has since completed a postgraduate qualification as a Fellow of Applied Functional Science, completing the prestigious GIFT mentorship programme from the Gray Institute, USA.
As a qualified personal trainer for 18 years, Gary has always had a keen interest in biomechanical function and movement. As a result Gary is passionate about combining hands on osteopathic modalities with functional movement assessments to get to the root cause of your pain.
Gary passionately believes that an individual's symptoms may not necessarily be the cause of their pain, but the effect of dysfunction elsewhere in the body, and as a result Gary relishes the challenge of uncovering the underlying causative factors, and treating this cause not just the symptoms.
Gary’s approach to treatment is very 'hands on’; he uses soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation and articulatory techniques, alongside specialist biomechanical movement assessments, mobility and strengthening exercise to help relieve pain.
Gary works in our City clinic on Monday and Tuesday.
