NICK WOOLLEY BSc (Hons) Ost
Nick qualified from the British School of Osteopathy (BSO) in London.
He is a co-director of the Wallington practice and as well as working there has a practice at his home in Headley, a village near Leatherhead. He is also a Senior Clinic Tutor and Examiner at the BSO.
Nick is a traditional Osteopath meaning that he evaluates his patients dysfunctions with a total body approach. As is the fundamental basis of osteopathy, this means not only examining the site of pain but more importantly finding the cause of this dysfunction.
As an example, a knee pain may be as a result of a dysfunction in the low or upper back; or an elbow pain may be caused by a mechanical problem in the shoulder. As an analogy, papering over a crack in a wall will not cure the real problem. One would need to find the reason for the crack to be able to fix it.
