    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    Patients tend to present with neck or back pain, sometimes dizziness or headaches, which are affecting their activities of daily life or their lifestyle and which is stopping them doing what they want to achieve in their day.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    I tend to offer a much more hands-on approach. Hence, lots of gentle manual therapy, whether that be a massage or joint mobilisation to try and adjust the biomechanics, and then reinforce that with home exercises and stretching to try and get a long-term solution.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    I have a special interest in the cervical spine and related pathologies. I treat a lot of headaches and migraines, particularly dizziness (cervicogenic dizziness or dizziness related to neck injuries). I would deal a lot with a concussion and car accidents. But I treat all areas of the body, whether it's a knee problem or whether it's a gait-related problem.

    Osteopaths, on the whole, I included, tend to deal with more long-term biomechanical breakdown rather than acute injuries. For example, problems which tend to occur, from the patients' point of view, for an apparent reason rather than after a specific event.

  • Professional memberships

    Other specialists recommended by Mr Skudder

  • Dr Lorenzo Masci, Sport & Exercise Medicine Specialist

    I would definitely recommend Dr Lorenzo Masci for any tendon injuries anywhere on the body. He's really expert at it, particularly when it comes to ultrasound and diagnostics.

  • Dr Anthony Waring, Sport & Exercise Medicine Specialist

    Dr Anthony Waring who's very patient-focused, tends to understand their problems, listens and acts accordingly. He has a nice, balanced view.

  • Dr Michael Burdon, Sport & Exercise Medicine Specialist

    Dr Michael Burdon. He's very thorough. He's very good at connecting specialisms and putting problems together from different areas.

  • Miss Amanda Lau, Podiatrist

    Miss Amanda Lau works for the English Institute of Sport. She is really very good. She's very good above-the-foot. You get a lot of podiatrists who can make very good orthotics which are good for the feet, whereas she's the only one I have come across who can change what happens in the lower back and in the thoracic spine by devices, which is good.

  • Prof. Adolfo Bronstein, Neurologist

    Prof. Adolfo Bronstein is the best when it comes to dizziness-related issues. His knowledge is fairly inexhaustible.

  • Mr Martin Knight, Orthopaedic Surgeon

    Mr Martin Knight does things that I haven’t seen other people. He's very good at what he does.

  • Mr Colin Natali, Orthopaedic Surgeon

    Mr Colin Natali has a very direct bedside manner. I would recommend him.

  • Mr Kumaraparathan Kunasingam, Orthopaedic Surgeon

    I would recommend Mr Kumar Kunasingam for foot and ankle related issues.
