Alison graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in osteopathy in 2001 and has since worked in a variety of osteopathic practices and gyms before establishing her own osteopathic practice in Kensal Rise, West London. During a fifteen year period she coordinated and taught practical osteopathic skills at the British School of Osteopathy. In 2014 Alison completed a postgraduate training course at the Gray Institute in the US – the foremost teaching institution for functional biomechanics – becoming a Fellow of Applied Functional Science.
More recently Alison trained in Cognitive Functional Therapy which focuses on the importance of the psychological and social factors that contribute to pain; an understanding of these and other lifestyle factors is essential in providing a comprehensive recovery strategy.
At the core of her practice is an understanding of the interaction between biomechanics and the pain process in the context of the individual patient. In doing so she endeavours to help patients understand the factors contributing to their pain and provide practical home exercise programmes and advice to improve it.
