Meet Bob Allen

Bob Allen

One of my favourite definitions of an Osteopath is

“Someone who solves a problem you didn’t know you had in a way you don’t understand, see also wizard or magician”

While it isn’t 100% accurate it is a great conversion starter when someone asks what I do for a living.

My name is Bob Allen and I am a Northampton Osteopath, strength & flexibility coach, Otago Programme Leader, and the owner of The Sollus Healthcare Clinic.

Whether your pain is caused by your work, your sport, a trip or fall,  I will help you get back to doing the things you enjoy.

I provide you with jargon-free, effective treatment for all your joint and muscle problems so why not get in touch and find out how I can help you?

I have been treating people in pain since 2008 when I received my diploma as a Level 4 massage therapist, I graduated as an osteopath in 2011, and qualified as a Functional Strength and Conditioning coach  in 2018.

One of the biggest joys of being an osteopath is helping to ‘fix’ problems that you were told were not ‘fixable’ including a client that had shoulder pain for 30 years which was resolved in 4 treatments! That’s not a boast about my amazing abilities as an Osteopath but more to let you know that however long you have had a problem I can reduce your pain and get you moving better.

In situations where I can’t help I will always direct you to someone that can, whether it involves a referral back to your GP or to another therapist.
