Claire Gregory is the senior clinical lead and founder of Trowbridge Osteopaths. She is a 2002 graduate of the oldest and most well-known Osteopathic institution, The University College of Osteopaths, formally the British School of Osteopathy.
She knew she wanted to become an Osteopath after a motorbike accident at age seventeen. Having experienced first-hand the benefits of early intervention when recovering from injury, an ambition grew to help others out of pain and get back to doing the things they love.
 
Having completed a four-year degree in Osteopathy, she has undertaken further training in dry needling, Hypnotherapy and Pilates.
Many of her patients are interested in mental health and the effects of stress on their bodies. She uses all her skills and techniques to provide a  whole-body approach to biomechanical assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and overall health. 

Having a keen interest in sport, Claire has treated all levels of athletes over the years. She has a vast knowledge of sports-related injuries, worked alongside Physiotherapists and Chiropractors to treat a variety of athletes. Some of these include members of, The British Bobsleigh team, the Samoan Rugby team, and runners at an Ultra X in Sri Lanka. Claire also likes to embrace new challenges and enjoys skiing and paddle boarding in her spare time. She also has a certificate in fire walking.

Since graduating Claire has gained qualifications and training in the following areas:

Sally Bonnell
BSc Ost

Registered Osteopath

In 2021 Sally was awarded the top award for best associate Osteopath in the UK by the Institute for Osteopathy (IO) for the ‘Above and Beyond' care and treatment given to her patients. Previously in 2020, she was part of the team here at Trowbridge when recognised as the best practice in the UK during Covid for all the work and support provided to patients and the community.

 

As an Osteopath, Sally qualified from the London School of Osteopathy with Honours, having previously specialised in the biomechanics and physiology of human movement. By combining her skills and knowledge as an Osteopath, she focuses in on the individual needs of each patient in order to provide the most suitable all-round care and support that they require.

 

Integrating traditional osteopathic techniques with a whole-body approach to movement assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, and long-term health, Sally works holistically with all her patients. Over the years she has developed many collaborations with other allied health care workers and these links enable her to get you the best care possible should you need additional support.

 

Sally’s patients come from all walks of life and are of all ages from within the local community and further afield: Her patients come from as far as Exeter to the west and Aldershot in the east. Placing the care of your health in her hands is a privilege she takes very seriously, and it rarely stops just because a patient isn’t in the clinic.  

Since qualifying as an Osteopath, Sally has gone on to complete several postgraduate courses and qualifications enabling her to also specialise in:

  1. Temporal mandibula joint pain.

  2. Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)

  3. Plantar fasciitis, tennis and golfer’s elbow, Achilles’ tendonitis, bursitis and more.

  4. Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue resulting in her becoming a Perrin technique practitioner.

  5. The use of Extracorporeal shockwave for many tendon issues.

  6. ITEC Level 3 Sport’s Massage Therapist.

 

Sally is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy.
