Mark graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in London and became a member of The Register of Osteopaths in 1986. Within a few years, Mark established himself as a leading Osteopath and working closely with GP’s in Burnley they realised the value of Osteopathy. As a result Mark was employed to be the sole provider of Osteopathy to over 150 GP’s within the NHS (National Health System).
 .
The aim of the osteopathic service was to get to spinal problems whilst in the primary care stage. Spinal problems tend to be progressive. By treating them early it was found far fewer cases were progressing to the secondary care stage. With such successful results he was invited by the national body of Osteopaths to lecture to groups of osteopaths, and he also lectured in clinical biomechanics and sports injuries.
 .
While based at Leeds University as part of The National Council for Enabling Osteopathic Research hub he developed and formulated a standard questionnaire used in the UK and Australia.
 .
Mark has a strong interest in sports injuries and running injuries in particular, this stems from his younger days when he competed in full marathons in the UK and Europe. He has written articles for newspapers, magazines, interviewed on BBC radio on this particular subject. A few years ago he spoke at the National Osteopathic Conference in Sydney on management of postural problems.
 .
In 2008, Mark and his family emigrated to Australia to enjoy a full family lifestyle.
 .
Mark’s osteopathic practice is expanding to accommodate the many clients that are seeking treatment for sports injuries, treatment for babies and children, and special treatment for seniors. He has endorsed personalised Yoga routine to complement your Osteopathic treatment by a highly experienced yoga teacher, to achieve your health and wellbeing goals.
