Who is Alan Johnson?
Alan Johnson holds a Masters Degree in Osteopathy. Before completing his Masters at university, he was a personal trainer at a very popular health club. Alan wanted to progress in the health and fitness industry so he went on to research and observe other forms of Musculo-skeletal medicine,which included working with a Chiropractor and observing the Physiotherapy department at a local Hospital. Osteopathy is something that he had never experienced before which he found fascinating. After further research on Osteopathy and observing other Osteopaths in there clinical practice, he was hooked!!!…. He found that Osteopathy is all about finding the root cause of symptoms and not just about treating them.
