One of my favourite definitions of an Osteopath is “someone who solves a problem you didn’t know you had in a way you don’t understand, see also wizard or magician”. While it isn’t 100% accurate(?) it is a great conversion starter when someone asks what I do for a living.

My name is Bob Allen and I am a Northampton Osteopath, strength & flexibility coach, Otago Programme Leader, and the owner of The Sollus Healthcare Clinic.

I provide you with jargon-free, effective osteopathic treatment for all your joint and muscle problems so whether they are caused by your work, your sport, a trip or fall Osteopathy can help.

After getting a degree in applied Biology many (many) years ago I became an IT project manager which I eventually gave up to become an osteopath, graduating in 2011. I gained my diploma as a Level 4 massage therapist in 2008 and qualified as a Functional Strength and Conditioning coach  in 2018.

One of the biggest joys of being an osteopath is helping to ‘fix’ problems that you thought were not ‘fixable’ including a client that had shoulder pain for 30 years which was resolved in 4 treatments! That’s not a boast about my amazing abilities as an Osteopath but more to let you know that however long you have had a problem I can usually help to reduce your pain and get you moving better.

In situations where I can’t help I will always direct you to someone that can, whether it involves a referral back to your GP or to another therapist.
