Angus Gould | M.Ost, bsc, Ahp
Angus grew up in East Sussex where both he and his family saw an osteopath regularly from a young age. After leaving school he explored different career options, deciding to expand his knowledge in health sciences. Four years later Angus graduated from Swansea University obtaining a first class masters degree in Osteopathy.
During his degree, he developed special interests in chronic pain disorders and advanced neurology. This inspired him to perform his own research project combining osteopathy and mindfulness to see if this would provide an added benefit for patients suffering with these conditions, the results of which he is aiming to have published in a medical journal.
Angus is primarily a structural osteopath meaning he uses a variety of different techniques that focus on the body’s frame work and connective tissue. These aim to improve the mobility and stability of joints, reduce the likelihood of muscle spasm, as well as improving circulation and lymphatic drainage to the target tissues.
The type of techniques you can expect Angus to use are; joint manipulation and articulation, neuromuscular technique, muscle energy technique, myofascial release, joint harmonics, deep soft tissue techniques and exercise prescription.
Previously to being an osteopath Angus also trained as a fitness instructor, which he feels adds an element of rehabilitation to his practice to help achieve sustainable results.
Additionally to Osteopathy, Angus enjoys keeping fit, attending the gym regularly focusing on resistance training. As well as this, golf is a keen interest, with Angus hoping to undergo his Titelist Approved Specialist qualification in the next year.
