Steve graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in London in 2004. He works with the knowledge that injury impacts on both the mind and body and therefore has spent the last 10 years developing skills in diagnosis with the aim of tailoring treatment to get you better, faster. Steve has spent much of his youth and present life actively involved in the field of sports and fitness, with time spent providing physiotherapy for local rugby club Shelford alongside his own personal involvements in the martial arts. This has led him to have an invested interest and understanding for health and sports injury rehabilitation and a dedicated and motivated attitude to his practice.
