Listed in Tatler's 'Britain's 250 Best Private Doctors' and as a specialist for www.danceuk.org , coccyx.org , pelvicpain.org and www.PudendalHope.info
He has expertise in computed digital x-ray diagnosis, spinal nerve compression, scoliosis, sciatic neuralgia, postural rehabilitation, sports, football and dance injuries and medical acupuncture.
Michael is a world expert in the diagnosis and manual treatment of coccyx, sacroiliac and musculoskeletal pudendal neuralgia and pelvic pain as well as costochondritis rib dysfunction and is an international speaker at 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 joint manipulation, as requested by patients.
Michael registered for his MPhil / PhD at the Institute of Musculoskeletal Science (IOMS) at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH), Stanmore and transferred his bone-growth research to UCL School of Life & Medical Sciences, Faculty of Population Health Sciences at the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (GOSICH), University College London (UCL).
Michael is investigating his original technique to increase tibial and femoral long-bone growth in the shorter leg of children with significant leg-length difference to minimise pelvic obliquity, compensatory scoliosis, back and joint pain and to avoid epiphysiodesis surgery (surgically shortening the longer leg). He will research part-time at GOSICH until 2021 while treating patients full time at Sayer Clinic: Kensington.
