“Suzanne got to the source of my problem and actually took my entire body into account, giving me some valuable advice on frame, posture etc. I felt very comfortable and her quality of treatment was outstanding.”
Eve Harris, patient
Suzanne is the practice principal and owner of The College Practice, which she opened in 1994. She qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in 1990 and has been practicing for the past 27 years.
Since then she has a wide experience in treating painful knees, painful shoulders, painful ankles painful elbows, painful wrists, painful hips including painful backs!
She always offers a full explanation as much as possible, sometimes using diagrams and models, to help you understand your painful joint(s) or muscles.
She continued her studies in 2000 when she qualified in the use of Pilates for rehabilitation with Polestar Pilates.
Using a broad spectrum of osteopathic treatment/techniques, tailored to suit the individual’s needs, Suzanne assist patients with acute and chronic conditions. She also combines her Osteopathic skills with Pilates (where appropriate), to offer rehabilitation to those with sports injuries, pre and post pregnancy, or those who want to learn how to build their core and improve overall strength and posture.
Suzanne likes to offer her patients a comprehensive package of care, and because she is an experienced Osteopath with a great passion for dance and sport, she understands the biomechanics and demands placed on an athletic body.
She has also had first hand experience with the aftermath of a serious road traffic incident, having spent 6-months recovering in hospital (3 months in a wheelchair) after an accident in her formative years, which took years from which to recover. Her experience has allowed her to help others with the trauma and frustration of such injuries and the rehabilitation required to get patients back on track.
