Mary Bridger D.O. PGCertHE
Mary graduated in 1983 from the
British School of Osteopathy with a Diploma in Osteopathy.
Mary worked in the south for one year after graduating before setting up the practice in Wetherby in 1984. Mary enjoys equine
activities including one day eventing and cross country as well
as art, antiques and outdoor activities.
Mary initially studied physiotherapy, but wanted
to be more proactively involved in the treatment of the cause of
problems, rather than just the symptoms. She
first came across osteopathy through a friend who asked her if she
would like to see her being treated for a bad back. It was at this
point, Mary knew exactly what she wanted to do.
Mary has undertaken further academic study and has a teaching qualification, PGCertHE and is a Senior Lecturer in Osteopathy on the Masters of Osteopathy course at Leeds Metropolitan University. She has been involved in the development nof the Masters course and it’s delivery since 2007.
In 2012 Mary was appointed as an assessor on behalf of the GOSC, assessing and providing feedback on registered osteopath’s portfolios as part of a national pilot scheme for professional revalidation.
Mary is also a member and contributor to NCOR – National Council for Osteopathic Research.
