Lucy Sonson

Lucy qualified as an Osteopath in 2013 and moved to Saint Lucia to work in a specialist team of practitioners at a 5* health and wellness resort. Here she treated a wide range of patients from different backgrounds, from chronic pain & postural asymmetries to sporting injuries. She met practitioners from all over the world who taught her skills she still uses as part of her practice today. It was here where she found her love for ayurveda, yoga & preventative medicine which are still very much the driving force of her professional development.

After returning home to increase her knowledge in osteopathy and injury rehab she worked in a number of private clinics, in Tonbridge and the city of London. Lucy joined the Croydon Physio team in 2017.

Lucy is a structural osteopath, basing her treatments not only on the latest research but on evidence-based practice and the principles of osteopathy.

She is confident in treating patients of all ages, from all backgrounds and guiding them until they have all the tools they need for prevention. She believes in personalised care and will work with you to make sure you are completely comfortable with the treatment plan and that you fully understand the working diagnosis and any factors which may be preventing healing. She uses a range of hands on techniques from soft tissue massage & trigger point release to joint mobilisation. As part of your treatment, Lucy may also use Ultrasound, Laser or Shockwave if appropriate for your condition. As an osteopath, hands on treatment is a large part of Lucy's practice however she believes that one cannot out-treat a poor lifestyle, therefore she will always guide her patients towards effective self-care.

As a musculoskeletal specialist Lucy can treat the whole body, however, she particularly enjoys treating back pain, sacral dysfunction & pelvic girdle pain. She's also passionate about teaching yoga & Pilates and believes that everyone can benefit from these practices.

Outside of work, Lucy enjoys traveling, cooking & yoga.
