Mike Doyle is Body Nurture’s osteopath and has worked as a sports and remedial massage therapist since 1997 before qualifying as an Osteopath from The London School of Osteopathy BSc level.
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a variety of musculoskeletal problems involving the joints, bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue. It uses a hands on approach to treat and alleviate the symptoms of;
Back and neck pain
Frozen shoulder and arm problems including tennis/golfers elbow
SiJ pain, hips and leg problems
Pre and post natal back pain
Acute and chronic injuries
Osteopathy not only treats your condition it also investigates its cause. Why have these symptoms occurred and what triggered the pain? Establishing the cause helps us to prevent the symptoms returning.
The techniques an osteopath uses are quite varied and include stretching, massaging, joint manipulations, exercises and a home rehabilitation plan to improve your mobility, strength and flexibility.
In addition to Osteopathy and massage Mike has taught group exercise for over 20 years. His main focus over the last 9 years has been Yoga and Pilates.
The style of yoga Mike teaches is a mixture of Iyengar and Ashtanga.
More recently Mike has qualified as a Thai Yoga Massage Therapist
“Mike is a very thorough and competent Osteopath who has gained my complete trust. Having seen a variety of different Osteopaths over many years with my back problems I can honestly say that he is one of the best. He not only fixes me but also explains the problem, which to be honest had never happened before. I now have a regime of exercises to follow to keep out of trouble and continue to see him regularly for essential ‘back maintenance. Thanks Mike!”
