About Us
If you have suffered a concussion and are seeking supportive, wrap-around concussion care in a timely manner – take a deep breath – you’ve come to the right place. Suffering a concussion can be a hugely challenging and stressful experience, it raises so many questions and unknowns - What is the best way to treat a concussion? Should I rest or remain active? Will I fully recover? Are my symptoms typical? Why are my moods so changeable? Knowing that you are getting the right support and advice in a timely manner can help relieve some of those feelings and give you assurance that you are doing everything in your power to manage your recovery in the best way possible. Andrew Gibson and Simon Roots are passionate about concussion care via management, treatment and presenting.

    I graduated from the British School of Osteopathy, London, in 1996 with an honours degree and subsequently moved to New Zealand. I was the osteopath for the New Zealand double gold winning board sailing team at the world championships in France 1997. I have established two multi disciplinary clinics in Auckland during the last 20 years and served on the board of Osteopaths New Zealand for 5 years, culminating in co-convening an International conference on pain in Auckland 2017. My special interest is the treatment and management of Concussion, education and presenting.

    I completed the coursework for my Masters of Osteopathy in 2013 and have since been practicing as an osteopath in Auckland, New Zealand. I have previously published my research with the International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine, have worked as an undergraduate lecturer for the osteopathy school and completed a Personal Training qualification to supplement my work as an osteopath. I have enjoyed working in multi-disciplinary practices and highly value the well-rounded and collegial approach to healthcare that this can provide. My areas of special interest are the treatment and management of concussion and whiplash injuries, and the treatment of any and all sport-related injuries.
