Philip qualified from the British School of Osteopathy, London in 1979.
He developed his osteopathic practice in Manchester and shortly after ‘The Old Hall Clinic’ was created in Gatley, Cheshire, a multidisciplinary practice, believed to be the first of it’s kind in the UK.
Philip’s aim was then, as is now, to provide patients with the ‘best of all worlds’ in which highly competent practitioners from their chosen profession would be able to collaborate ideas and treatment methods for the common good of the patient.
Philip is proud to say that he enjoys looking after a variety of patients, not just common musculoskeletal problems, such as aches and pains in joints and muscles, but also a number of professional sportsmen and women, often as a preventative measure, as well as offering services to the very young and infants.
Philips interest in paediatric osteopathy started early on in his career and much of his paediatric training was undertaken in the USA and Canada. Leading to his inventing the SleepCurve mattress range for newborn babies and for babies with plagiocephelay (flat head syndrome).
Having lectured at the BSO, he also became a lead external examiner for graduating osteopaths. Philip currently enjoys a good working relationship with Sale Sharks, Wigan Warriors, man utd and man city football clubs.
