He has now moved on after 15 years to develop further his other orthopaedic interests.He is fondly known as 'Nick-the-Neck' by his colleagues, as he specialises in cervical spine injuries as well as head,neck and facial pain syndromes. At the Fulham clinic he works closely with a team of GP's in primary care. He has a special interest in pregnancy related problems and adolescents.He is a keen and active lecturer and has travelled all over the world to teach, as well as treat patients and was consultant osteopath to the Kingdom of Bahrain. He has worked in the U.S., Australia, Germany and France and the Middle East. As he says, 'you can never know enough or treat too many patients, experience is everything!' He is also a keen advocate of the 'scientific art of osteopathy' and has pioneered it amongst the medical profession. In the past he has worked with elite track athletes (400m), professional Golfers, Tennis players ( he has been a BBC radio and TV pundit on sports injuries) and Formula 1 drivers, as well as high goal Polo players and skeleton bob athletes (England and Irish teams).He has been a Human Performance advisor for the Institute Biomedical Sports et Vie in Paris and VieLife where he set up a state of the art performance and biomechanics centre. He consulted to Jaguar, Jordan and Prost racing teams. He also helped to establish a Human Performance tracking/ measurement tool with WAIS in Western Australia. He 'cut his teeth' in the sports world but soon realised he was more academically challenged and interested in chronic, complex and multi system problems in the general population.He has appeared on television and written numerous articles.He is currently writing a book on 'pain' for patients and pioneering the use of dynamic CT to study spinal movement in the upper cervical spine. He is a consultant to the European Scanning Centre in London. He fundamentally believes in making treatment fun and as easy as possible whenever possible and cannot see what could possibly be more interesting than peopleHe has been a keen sportsman himself (Rugby, Marathon, Triathlon) and still enjoys running and tennis. He coaches junior rugby at Henley Rugby Club. He is married with two children to whom he is devoted. Possibly most important of all for patients, he has had a spinal injury himself.
