About Chris Branch

Chris grew up with a passion for studying human form and function and wanted to be an osteopath at the age of 13. He finally achieved his dream when graduating from the British School of Osteopathy in 2008.

After graduating, Chris spent two years studying classical osteopathy before investing in the prestigious GIFT mentorship program in America in 2013 to become a Fellow of Applied Functional Science. He is also trained in Functional Range Conditioning (FRC), and can assess and coach running technique.

These courses have helped Chris understand how the body works as a whole, both from a biomechanical and movement perspective and from a physiological one.

Chris’s other interests include nutrition, exercise science, meditation and philosophy.

This means that in your treatment with him, not only will you come away with a clear diagnosis of what is causing your pain, why it is happening and a treatment plan to get you pain-free and mobile, but Chris will also be able to highlight any other lifestyle factors that are holding you back from optimal health.

Outside the clinic, Chris loves to train for ultra-distance runs, practise callisthenics and get beaten up by his teammates in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He also has two young children which keep him fitter than all the exercise combined!

My experience with Forte has proved exceptional. My engagement has been with Gemma, sports massage expert. I went for a specific issue and now regularly go because she has (a) solved the problem and (b) worked hard on reoccurrence and general well being. If anyone needs a sports massage try her. You won't be disappointed.

Took my wife kicking and screaming as she didn't think it would solve her week long back pain. An hour later she came out with a beaming smile and I had the look of "I told you so".Awesome service, no doubt we will be back

Chris sorted out my long-standing neck problem which was showing no signs of improving through rest. Great guy - give him a go and I don't think you'll regret it.

Everytime ive needed treatment for my pain the staff have been so lovely, informative and helpful. I always recommend these guys to anyone as i know they go above and beyond to help you. Big shoutout to the new assiocate osteopath Harry who is very down to earth and easy to have a chat with. He did a great job of treating my shoulder pain, informing me about next steps to take, exercises to do and making me feel at ease. 👍✨️
