After a crashing fall from a horse at the tender age of 15, Georgina was left with a broken and dislocated shoulder, and terrible neck pain. Whilst surgery sorted her shoulder, the neck pain proved a little more stubborn and resulted in a trip to see an Osteopath. From that point on, Georgina was hooked and has chased her dream of being a human and equine osteopath.
Georgina Bull is a graduate of the British College of Osteopathic Medicine, qualifying in 2006 with a BSc (Hons) in Osteopathic Medicine, along with a Diploma in Osteopathy and a Diploma in Naturopathy. Georgina is a registered osteopath with the General Osteopathic Council, and also the British Osteopathic Association. Combined with this, she is a member of the Osteopathic Sports Care Association.
Since graduating, Georgina strives to keep continuing her professional qualifications by attending courses in techniques, keeping up to date with the latest practices. In 2011, she completed the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS) course and also practices Medical Acupuncture alongside Osteopathic treatments. Georgina is registered with BMAS as a practising therapist.
Georgina has completed kinesiotaping courses in Facial Movement Taping (FMT)1, and FMT 2 with Rocktape, allowing herself to be called a RockDoc, and certifying her to use a full range of taping techniques from symptom reduction to performance modification. Additional courses with Rocktape see her adding further skill sets such as using functional movement patterns to diagnose injuries and strengthen the body, along with Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Massage for those hard to shift sports injuries.
Alongside general practice, Georgina has a keen interest in treating sports injuries, and finds enjoyment in working with athletes to improve their performance as best she can. She has competed with the British Equestrian Team in endurance at the World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany 2006, and has worked as the Travelling Osteopath to both the Senior and Elite Endurance Team competing for Team GBR at both European and World level.
Georgina herself is still a keen equestrian, having ridden from the age of 2 years to present day, and owns a horse with who she aspires to compete in endurance riding and dressage. Georgina also enjoys wakeboarding, snowboarding and clay pigeon shooting regularly.
