Team

ELIMINATING PAIN & GETTING YOU MOVING FOR GOOD

Meet the Team

Our Physiotherapists and Osteopaths are experienced clinical practitioners and are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, Healthcare and Professions Council, General Osteopathic Council and The Institute of Osteopathy. We provide a broad range of high quality diagnostic and treatment skills for an extensive array of musculoskeletal problems, including sports and work related injuries. All Physiotherapists and Osteopaths are governed by strict rules and a professional code of conduct.

Perhaps most importantly for our patients, all members of the team regularly attend postgraduate courses in order to introduce new and up-to-date treatment techniques to our patients. At present every practitioner at the clinic is on an extended course such as a Post graduate Certificate, Diploma or MSc. We have a small, yet selective team of practitioners with a set of common goals:

It’s about you, not us!

We want you symptom free! If we can’t achieve this we will put you in the hands of someone who can, e.g. an orthopaedic surgeon.

We will get grumpy (with ourselves) if you come back with the same symptoms

We promise, simply, to get you much better

Dean Dickinson

Chartered & HCPC Physiotherapist & GOsC Registered Osteopath, MICO
HCPC Reg. (PH100615) Independent Prescriber
Advanced Practice Physio & Osteopath

Dean is highly fortunate to have had over 20 years in physical therapy, having qualified initially from the British School of Osteopathy, London, in 2002. He then obtained a post graduate diploma (PG Dip.) in Classical Osteopathy from the John Wernham College of Classical Osteopathy. From there, he completed many Postgraduate courses in the UK, Europe and the USA in Cranial, Paediatric and Obstetric Osteopathy.
He started an MSc in Osteopathy, only for the course to be discontinued after module two. This left him at a loose end, and he started to undertake more work in the fields of primitive reflexes, movement science, paediatrics, naturopathy, human factors engineering & occupational health (going on to work for companies such as EDF Energy, Costain, Cross Rail Network, London 2012, MOD and BAE).
He was then offered the opportunity to study for another BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy at Brunel University, London, which he completed in 2012. Since then, he has completed further training in the UK and US in Functional Movement Science, NIKE golf biomechanics, medical acupuncture, shockwave therapy and applied kinesiology.
Dean has taught for many years, both at an undergraduate and postgraduate level, in the UK and Europe. He has worked in professional sports with AFC Wimbledon, Woking FC and many professional athletes. Over the years, Dean has worked solo in GP surgeries, private clinics, NHS clinics and within large multi-disciplinary teams/clinics (often owned and directed by himself).
He is currently studying for an MSc in Personalised Nutrition with a strong focus on nutrition, ancestral health, and functional medicine with the main aim of getting to the root cause of a person’s problem to provide a long-term effective resolution of a problem rather than just palliating or managing it.
In 2019, he graduated with a post graduate certificate (PG Cert.) in Independent Prescribing at the Medway School of Pharmacy, allowing Dean to use pharmaceutical drugs to treat pain and inflammation if required. Dean has undergone further MSc level training in injection therapy at the University of Essex. Dean is a trained Phlebotomist who regularly takes blood samples for blood analysis and PRP injections.
Dean has worked as a Senior First Contact Practitioner (FCP) in the NHS and currently consults with several third-party companies supplying this service.
Dean tries to keep fit and active these days after years of abusing his body playing rugby, cricket, hockey, and athletics. These days it’s a 5k run, and playing Touch Rugby will a load of other middle-agers!
