About Wokingham Osteopaths
Matt’s interest in manual therapy began with a combination of parkour and weightlifting which led to several issues involving shoulder dislocations which were treated with rehabilitation exercises from his osteopath and a chronic knee problem. After a consultant exam, MRI scan and operation he was then told nothing more could be done. After his osteopath corrected the issue in two treatments from identifying an imbalance in the knee muscles, Matt was hooked.
He has been working as an Osteopath since 2010 and takes pride in helping patients with musculoskeletal problems and is passionate about helping people working in office environments to prevent pain before it starts. Given his background in parkour, Matt also enjoys working with sports people from all backgrounds in order to help them achieve their full potential.
Matt’s treatment style is mainly structural utilising massage, stretching, articulatory and joint manipulation techniques, but he also incorporates classical Osteopathy techniques for a gentler approach to treatment. He is registered with the General Osteopathic Council as well as the Institute of Osteopathy and is fully insured.
In case you were wondering, no he doesn’t practice parkour any more. When he’s not working in the clinic, he is either looking after his and Keri’s young son or paddle boarding.
From a very young age Keri was determined to be a physical therapist and was guided to osteopathy by a family member who had seen osteopaths before.
Keri studied at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in London and graduated in 2008, and has completed post graduate courses in Cranial Osteopathy. She uses this gentle treatment modality to treat patients of all ages but also uses Structural Osteopathy, in a similar style to Matt.
Her interests include going for walks and bringing up her and Matt’s young son, Logan.
