Born in 1962, Nigel initially trained as a ‘complementary health practitioner’ achieving his diploma in 1990, he subsequently specialized in sports massage and other remedial therapies working alongside osteopaths in their practices.
This exposure to ‘hands on osteopathy’, seeing its scope and effectiveness in the treatment of a wide variety of musculo-skeletal and other conditions inspired him to train as an osteopath.
Osteopathic training is demanding and lengthy, and a recognised qualification is only available from osteopathic educational institutions accredited by General Osteopathic Council.
After studying four years full-time at the ‘British School of Osteopathy’ the countries oldest osteopathic school, Nigel qualified as a registered osteopath in 1999 with a 2.1 Batchelor of Science honours Degree.

Also a teacher he is currently principal lecturer in Osteopathic Technique and Clinical methods at ‘Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine’ a recognised qualification (RQ) osteopathic degree course based at North East Surrey College in Ewell. Although interested in all aspects of osteopathic practice he works primarily as a ‘hands on’ or structural osteopath and over the years has gained experience in the treatment of most conditions and age groups.
Philip is the most recent member of the team and brings a vast experience from his previous background in sports massage therapy, where he spent some of his time working on the London Marathon and the Tour de France, as well as working with several celebrities.
He received his Osteopathic qualification at Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine where he learnt both structural and classical osteopathy; this gives him a huge variety of skills which allows him to treat each person to their own individual needs.
Because Philip used to be a personal trainer, he also provides his patients with exercises and advice which will help prevent their problems reoccurring and he is always on the end of a phone if his patients need some urgent advice.
He has a previous history of competitive tennis and football, and also has a keen interest in the treatment of herniated and prolapsed discs.
His previous successful work with babies and children with disabilities has given him a new found focus, but he has decided to put this work on hold until he has gained further qualifications which will assist in this area.
Mr Krupa joined the Parkview team in mid 2011 to replace our previous Physio Mr Wheatley who moved into the NHS sector.
Mr Krupa originates from Poland where he worked as a senior Physiotherapist and manager of a hospital rehabilitation department before moving to the UK.
In addition to holding a Masters Degree in Physiotherapy, he has completed further postgraduate qualifications in McKenzie Technique, Kinesiology Taping and Functional Osteopathy.
As a fully registered Physiotherapist he is able to see both Private & NHS patients referred directly to him by any local GP. Please note – if your hospital waiting time is too great, then why not ask your GP about being sent here instead! We do hope that in joining our clinic his skills will help us to continue to expand the physiotherapy side of the clinic and build stronger links with local GP’s and the community.
