Danielle Dywer

Danielle graduated from the British School of Osteopathy (BSO) in 2016 with a Masters in Osteopathy.  She is registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) the regulator for osteopathy in the UK.

She has an acute understanding of how pain can impact on both a professional and social level, having experienced reoccurring episodes of debilitating neck pain following a whiplash injury in her teens.  Discovering osteopathy provided great relief from her pain and reduced the frequency of episodes, until she eventually became symptom free.  She has been a strong advocate of Osteopathy ever since.

Danielle has over 8 years’ experience of treating patients in both acute and longer term pain, with various musculoskeletal issues.  She has a passion for osteopathy and a keen interest in working with people to improve their quality of life and regain their independence by providing them with individualised treatment plans specific to their needs.
