Visceral Clinic Dublin
Caroline lives in the UK, but is registered as an osteopath in Ireland, with the Osteopathic Council of Ireland. She is planning to open a clinic in Dublin when covid conditions allow. She practices in the UK as a Functional Manual Medicine Practitioner, whilst continuing her extensive education and research services about osteopathic practice.
General Patient Clinic UK
Caroline is now seeing patients as a Functional Medicine Practitioner in Barnoldswick, Lancashire. Click here for details.
Having been a registered osteopath for over 30 years in the UK, Caroline has now voluntarily withdrawn her registration, in good standing, with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). Under the Osteopaths Act 1993 she is no longer able to use the title 'osteopath' for her UK healthcare practice.
If you have previously seen Caroline as an 'osteopath' please note that her clinical title is now 'Functional Manual Medicine Practitioner' and you can no longer claim for 'treatment by an osteopath' through your health insurance company.
Caroline remains passionate about osteopathic principles to healthcare and she continues to trains osteopaths in the care and support of patients across the lifespan, from infants, new mums, to those with complex needs.
Please note: any courses or topics shown here or any other website or social media forum relating to Caroline / her other professional activities does not indicate a claim for treatment efficacy for any particular condition or presentation for patients considering attending Caroline's Clinic.
Osteopathic Public Information Service
Promoting Osteopathy and its benefits must be done in accordance with regulatory standards and in line with evidence-based practice.
Caroline has conceived this Project - the Osteopathic Public Information Service Project (OPIS) which aims to research an information framework for approaches to practice in various patient presentations, and to develop a user friendly interface for the public which highlights osteopathic hypotheses / approaches, care plans and so on, and critically analyses them, determining what levels of evidence are currently available for each patient category or various conditions or problems patients often seek help for. Some conditions discussed in the framework may be illustrative -ie to indicate what evidence areas are below current advertising thresholds - so that patient considering care for conditions other than those noted by the Advertising Standards Authority, can be better informed regarding the evidence.
