Rupert Cross - TCA Bristol

Rupert qualified as an Osteopath in 2008 and has been working with climbers and sports injuries ever since. He has been climbing since the age of twelve and has suffered a fair number of injuries over this time so can appreciate the frustration an injury can cause. Therefore the primary goal of all appointments is to get patients back climbing to full strength.

Rupert has been Practicing at TCA for the past 6 years, over this time he has built up a wealth of experience and knowledge in treating climbing injuries, including fingers, shoulders, elbows, backs, ankles and more. He is experienced in treating all forms of sports injuries but speialises in treating upper limb injuries with a particular interest in shoulder and elbow dysfunction.

Rupert will tailor a treatment course for each patient which will include the use of massage, spinal adjustments and mobilisations, trigger point release and medical acupuncture if needed. All patients will also receive a rehabilitation programme suited to them to aid and speed their recovery.
