Tracy Hannigan, London Osteopath

London Osteopath Tracy Hannigan

Are you suffering? Are you missing work or fun? Are you losing sleep?

Get Better Faster!

I love being based in the community in which I live – I’m kind of a community activist that way, in both my work and my life. I’ve always loved healthcare, always loved creating with my hands, and have always loved education. It is this set of passions and my background in medicine, osteopathy and psychology which blend together in helping those who live and work near me.  I love what I do – let me help you!

I will help you with aches, pains or sports injuries. I use all of my skills and experiences when working with you – so you feel better faster! 

What do I do in my spare time?

I love to be active and healthy – it’s not just a suggestion but something I live by!

I’m an avid kayaker and love spending both quiet afternoons on the water as well as bashing down rapids in Wales.

I play Ultimate Frisbee, a non contact sport played on a football pitch with rules similar to netball.

One of my hobbies is Tudor history and I’m a huge fan of the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth.  I had a chance to help catalogue the remains of this marine archaeology site, and it was fascinating to see firsthand to see how the harsh working conditions, cramped posture conditions and poor nutrition of the sailors affected their skeletons.

More about me

I was fortunate enough to attend the prestigious British College of Osteopathic Medicine here in London, earning my Masters in Osteopathic Medicine. I also have a four year degree in Psychology, a qualification as an NLP practitioner and a strong interest in sport and exercise rehabilitation.  When I was much younger I studied Biology, doing a dual major in both Pre-Medicine and Cell Biology, which well prepared me for starting my clinical training as an osteopath.

Did you know that osteopaths have to plan and complete a minimum of 30 hours of professional development each year?  At least half of this must be with other professionals, especially important for a clinician like myself who works alone.

There are guidelines on the kinds of professional development we have to do coming in next year – this is to ensure we complete a broad range of topics that apply to our practice.

Sometimes people ask me what I have done for my CPD courses this last year – so here is a summary for you!

  • Enhanced palpation and assessment
  • Functional Active Release – Lower body and lumbar spine
  • Movement impairment syndromes of the lumbar spine
  • Best practices in the assessment of patellofemoral pain
  • Assessment and management of lateral ankle sprains
  • Communication and Consent
  • Head Injury Guidelines
  • GERD/GORD in Infants – Current practice for medical care
  • Myofascial techniques for the sacrum and pelvis
  • Neuropathic Pain
  • HMRC Tax Guidance Course
  • Shoulder problems in the older patient
