Nicola corvin Bsc (Hons) Ost
Initially started on the path of study 15 years ago and initially had no intention of becoming an Osteopath!!…. I first studied under the football association completing courses in sports injuries, sports massage and sports management which started my career off in sports injuries, initially at a clinic in Melton Mowbray. Nicola found herself working on top dressage and event riders as well as the local rugby team!!!
In 2001 I qualified as a manipulative therapist in Nottingham and then qualified as an Osteopath in 2007 from Oxford Brookes University with a 2:1.
I returned back to Oxford Brookes as a clinic tutor in 2010 for 3 very enjoyable years passing on passionate information about Osteopathy.
I like to specialie in biomechanical disorders and injuries working both cranially and structurally on the body. Nicola also studies neural techniques related to headaches and eye strain and is very aware what a common place in the modern world that eye strain takes. Nicola studied about eyestrain with a Portuguese dyslexic lady who had been suffering for years until being advised about prism glasses. Although Nicola can’t prescribe prism glasses she can however treat the eyes cranially which proves very successful in eyestrain, headaches and neck pain.
Nicola eventually wants to treat babies and children for movement disorders and is currently studying with specialist’s physiotherapists from Prague as well as another technique known as balance ligament tension. It enables me to trace where the movement disorder originates and then to stimulate the dormant muscles to help rectify the movement disorder.
Out of the clinic I have taken up cycling this year to hopefully complete a 100 mile bike ride from London to surrey and back!!! Raising money for Salisbury neonatal unit which is a cause close to my heart.
Nicola is more than happy to offer advice if you have any questions about Osteopathy.
