Special Field of Interest
Alex has a special interest in osteopathic approaches to the management of headaches, migraines and concussions and has worked closely with patients to help manage their symptoms, many whom have been coping with these issues for many years. To further his knowledge in this field he is an active member of Osteopaths for Progress in Headaches and Migraines.
Alex uses osteopathy as a way of detecting and treating injuries in the muscles, ligaments, fascia, nerves and joints of the body. Having a highly-developed sense of touch known as palpation he will gently and specifically, evaluate and treat injuries. As an osteopath, Alex believes that the body has the ability to heal itself and the skilled application of osteopathic techniques (massage, mobilization and soft tissue) can improve this process. He uses a wide variety of osteopathic techniques including structural, visceral and cranial approaches that he adapts to each patient to address their individual needs. Having worked closely with local doctors for his entire career he will refer for further investigation if indicated.
