Claire Dean
(M.Ost) graduated with a first class honours degree following the completion of her studies at Swansea University. She is a registered osteopath and is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy.

She has gained experience through her work in multiple clinics at University but also by working alongside Fall Bay RFC, a local Swansea rugby team. There she further developed her skills in patient management, education and strategies to facilitate individuals back to playing and loved every second. Not only does Claire have an interest in sporting injuries she also researched into whiplash associated neck pain following a rugby injury. Her research highlighted the prevalence of neck pain, but also its detrimental impact upon quality of life, and through personal experience found that osteopathic management can be helpful in an individual’s recovery.

Whether it be a sporting injury, acute onset of pain or chronic pain, Claire strives to focus on addressing the root cause of an individual’s pain. From there she works with her patients to find the best ways to manage the individual back to their optimal state.
