The Twyford Osteopathic Practice was opened by Mr Atkinson in 1995, with an aim to create a practice which would cater for each patient’s individual specific needs, in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Mr Atkinson is a registered Osteopath having graduated in 1994 from the British School of Osteopathy with a BSc - a four year full time course covering anatomy, physiology, neurology and pathology of the body, plus osteopathic philosophy and treatment techniques.  It is officially recognised by the British Medical Association as a discrete clinical discipline.

Mr Atkinson is registered with the General Osteopathic Council of which all








osteopaths by law must be registered with in order to practice Osteopathy. The General Osteopathic Council is responsible for regulating the profession and maintaining standards of education, proficiency and conduct.


After graduation it is important that osteopaths continue to develop professionally and keep up to date with the latest developments within osteopathy and the healthcare sector.  As well as being aware of legislation, which may affect their practice, the General Osteopathic Council requires osteopaths to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in order to maintain their registration.

He is also a member of the British Osteopathic Association (BOA).


Previous to qualifying as an Osteopath, Mr Atkinson is a qualified Registered General Nurse who studied at The Stoke Mandeville Hospital. He spent time working in The National Spinal Injuries Centre as part of his three year training diploma. He has also worked extensively with the young disabled, caring for patients suffering with Multiple Sclerosis, head injuries, cerebral palsy and the frail elderly and infirm.

In his spare time Mr Atkinson likes to keep fit by swimming 2 to 3 times a week. A lover of the outdoors, he is also a keen gardener and enjoys a round of golf.
