Dr Faith Gardner

Dr Faith GardnerDr Faith Gardner has been training and working in the specialities of Musculo-skeletal Medicine and Sport and Exercise Medicine for 20 years, full time since 2001 when she qualified as an Osteopath and completed an MSc in Musculo-skeletal Medicine. She is a Fellow of the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine in Ireland and in the UK.

Dr Gardner has worked in private practice in Kilmarnock and Glasgow since 2001. She is also the assessing doctor for the Scottish Performing Arts Clinic based in Glasgow supported by the British Association of Performing Arts Medicine. Prior to 2001 Dr Gardner completed vocational training for General Practice and worked for some years in Accident and Emergency within the NHS. In parallel with this she has worked part time in Orthopaedic Outpatients since 1996 and continues in this role as an Associate Specialist in Musculo-Skeletal Medicine.

In addition to working with patients Dr Gardner has been involved with running educational course for doctors and other health care professionals in Sport and Exercise Medicine. From 2005 to 2015 she was a clinic tutor at the London College of Osteopathic Medicine, training Doctors who wish to become Osteopaths. She has been Deputy Course Director from 2009 to 2015. In 2015 Dr Gardner was made a Fellow of the College. She continues to give occasional lectures and presentaions to professional groups.

Dr Gardner is one of a small group of professionals in the UK who combine all three disciplines of Sport and Exercise Medicine, Musculo-skeletal medicine and Osteopathy to assess and treat their patients. She aims to assess the whole person, looking at all contributing factors to the current problem. This is based largely on information from the patient with occasionally extra information from appropriate investigations. Her treatment plan aims to correct or reverse these factors wherever possible and to always maximize function and increase physical activity.
