Pietro Susini completed his BSc Physiotherapy (Honours) from Florence University, Italy in 2009. He developed a particular interest in the assessment and treatment of postural dysfunctions and wrote his dissertation on the treatment of postural diseases in children.
Pietro considers manual techniques a fundamental tool in treating and managing the rehabilitation of patients for a range of symptoms, from postural and breathing dysfunction, to sports injury and competitive training. He works using traditional physiotherapy as well as dry needling acupuncture.
He moved to London to complete a Master of Science in Osteopathy at UCO and graduated as an Osteopath in August 2014.
Pietro decided to integrate his Physio training with the Osteopathic training as he felt the need to achieve better hands-on skills to be able to get a deeper understanding of the body tissues’ condition and hence to treat their dysfunctions.
He is now blending in his practice elements to provide patients with the highest quality treatment.
In 2016 Pietro also became more involved in the training of undergraduate osteopaths since he started a position as Clinic Tutor at UCO, co-running the Blanchard HIV specialist clinic.
His background as a competitive horse rider motivated him to complete a post-graduate diploma in animal osteopathy in 2015. He practices equine osteopathy sporadically as a way to escape to the countryside and be close to horses.
