Pregnancy PGP specialist: manual therapy SPD Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction, sacroiliac, coccyx tailbone and pelvic pain during and after pregnancy.

Michael has expertise in digital x-ray diagnosis, musculoskeletal pelvic diagnostic ultrasound, treatment of spinal nerve compression, scoliosis, postural rehabilitation, sports and dance injuries.

Michael is at the pinnacle of diagnosis and manual treatment of coccyx, sacroiliac and musculoskeletal pudendal neuralgia and pelvic pain as well as costochondritis, rib dysfunction and postural rehabilitation.

He is a published international speaker at global medical symposia, workshops and congresses.

Many patients receive great relief from spinal adjustments, while others prefer not to have manipulation at all or only of some spinal areas. Michael's broad range of techniques offers maximum patient comfort so he can use effective mobilisation and manual therapy instead of careful joint manipulation, as requested by patients.

Current PhD Research

Michael registered his PhD at the Institute of Musculoskeletal Science (IOMS) at Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH), Stanmore and later transferred his work to Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (GOSICH) University College London (UCL) UK. His original research is to investigate his technique which aims to increase tibial and femoral long-bone growth in the shorter leg of children with significant leg-length difference to minimise compensatory scoliosis, pelvic obliquity and resulting back and pelvic pain.
