Alan Sidebottom M.Ost (Osteopath)

Originally from Plymouth, Alan gained a Masters in Osteopathy after four years of study from Swansea University in 2017. He is a keen open water swimmer and has previously lived in Germany and Cyprus.

Alan's main interests are in acute and chronic pain management in osteopathy which originated from his dissertation topic where he researched peoples different perception of pain. Alan uses his knowledge and experience to give his patients a tailored pain management plan to best suit their goals and targets.

Alan has had vast experience in working within an NHS environment working with GPs, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Nutritionists and Neurologists to effectively manage patients in both acute and chronic pain.

Alan is a dedicated practitioner who uses his knowledge and assessment skills to best interpret and explain what he clinically believes is the cause of your pain, how it is best managed and how to help prevent re-injury.
