Geraint Williams

Registered Osteopath

Geraint’s passion for musculoskeletal healthcare began after he suffered a shoulder injury whilst representing the Scarlets West Under 16’s team. He decided to visit his local osteopath to help with his shoulder rehabilitation, and from that moment on, it was his dream to become an osteopath!
In June 2021, Geraint graduated with a Masters Degree from the prestigious Swansea University. During his time there, he discovered that an evidence-based approach to musculoskeletal issues with a strong consideration of biomechanics and anatomy suited his personal beliefs.
A combination of experience in a range of different sports and a high level of education has allowed him to gain knowledge and expertise that he is eager to share with people in his home county of Pembrokeshire. He focusses on optimising athletic performance and encouraging pain-free movement by using a variety of techniques.
In my spare time, he can either be found surfing/paddleboarding in the sea or exercising in the gym
