--- Terence McSweeney ---
Terence, an Osteopath from Ireland, has a wide range of experience from private practice in London, to NHS settings such as the Royal London Hospital, and community clinics in Swansea, Wales. He has developed a special interest in the treatment of chronic pain conditions after studying an MSc in pain management at the University of Edinburgh. These conditions include facial pain, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), headaches, neck pain, and low back pain. As part of the osteopathic approach Terence utilises the most up to date scientific evidence to inform his treatment of pain.
Terence has an additional interest in treating sports injuries, especially those associated with combat sports. This is influenced by his love of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu which he practices on a regular basis. He uses a range of approaches to facilitate recovery and return to sport including instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation/Graston technique, specialised taping and rehabilitation techniques, dry needling, osteopathic manipulation, and soft tissue techniques. When necessary Terence will take a multidisciplinary approach that involves referral to other specialised clinicians to ensure maximum efficiency of treatment.
Terence has a wide range of experience in osteopathic education. This includes tutoring at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine, London, full time lecturing in osteopathy at Swansea University, Wales, and his current position as a faculty member of the Korean Osteopathic Institute, South Korea. During his time at Swansea University he became the osteopathy clinic director at the University Health and Wellbeing Academy. Experience as an educator has greatly enhanced his clinical practice ensuring that he is up to date with the latest approaches in pain management and injury treatment and prevention.
