Hello, I’m Adrienne and am the Principal Osteopath at Llandudno Osteopathy Centre.
I am passionate about Osteopathy and enjoy going to work each day. I attend a number of CPD courses, mainly in London, and the endless benefits of Osteopathy for a wide range of health issues never ceases to amaze me. The key to this is an excellent understanding of anatomy and physiology particularly with regards to the neuromuscular skeletal system and the interconnections with this and the health issues we see.
I qualified with a first class honours degree from the College of Osteopaths, Keele University, completing the 5-year course in June 2011. I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOSC) and the Institute of Osteopathy (IOs).
Following graduation I worked as an associate Osteopath at Deganwy Osteopathic Clinic for 4 years before setting up my own practice in Llandudno.
I am also registered with many major private healthcare insurers including Welsh Hospitals (WHA), Aviva, AXA and Simply Health. If you are registered with a private medical insurer that is not mentioned here please get in touch as many insurance companies only require you to see a registered osteopath and I can contact them on your behalf.
I graduated with a masters degree in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy. Prior to this I studied Physiology at Cardiff University where I graduated with honours. I also qualified in medical acupuncture and kinesiology taping.
A proud Welshman I am an avid rugby fan and have spent many years playing rugby for North Wales, my local team and university teams. Osteopathy has played a big part in maintaining my ability to play after countless injuries.
As well as my love for rugby, I am also a very keen skier. After graduating I spent time in the French Alps treating injured skiers and snowboarders and helping them get back on the slopes as soon as possible.
I approach the body as a whole unit and treat in a predominantly structural manner in order to reduce pain and improve function. I treat people of all ages suffering from a variety of complaints ranging from chronic postural or degenerative conditions to acute injuries.
I have spent a large majority of my life training, teaching and competing in various sports and martial arts and have found my interests lie in optimising the way that we use our bodies.
As a result, I’ve followed these interests into further education and now hold a Sports Science degree from Aberystwyth University (BSc) and a First-class honours degree from Oxford Brookes University in Osteopathy (BOst).
My main aim as an Osteopath is to get you out of pain as quickly and as non-invasively as possible. We will work together to come up with feasible, long term management strategies to prevent re-occurrence of injury and get you back to doing what you love.
I use a firm grounding in biomechanical and physiological assessment that can be used to specifically target the source of your pain, not just the symptoms.
I enjoy treating a wide variety of people and age groups and your experience and wellness are top priority. I aim to help you take control of your situation and know how to take of yourself and manage your condition even after you’ve left the clinic.
