I became interested in the human body more than 20 years ago after I dislocated one of my joints playing football and was admitted to hospital to undergo surgery. I remember being in pain, feeling afraid, and wondering if I would ever get back to normal again. I’ve also sustained major sprains of my knee and ankle ligaments playing rugby, and severely injured my lower back in the early months of my physiotherapy career.

Since then, I’ve gained more than 15 years of experience in the U.K., including work at the Royal Free Hospital, Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospitals, and Saracens Rugby Union Football Club. I’ve also worked for the British Army as a Clinical Specialist with the Parachute Regiment and redesigned the Musculoskeletal Outpatients service for the Infantry. My teaching roles have included being a Visiting Lecturer and External Examiner to Sports Physiotherapy degrees at University College London and King’s College London. In the U.S., I’ve performed cutting-edge injury prevention and injury rehabilitation research at one of America’s premier universities, and provided sports medicine support services to professional athletes in the NFL.

In the past, I’ve been injured playing sports and at work, and have undergone three major surgeries. Now, I’ve integrated the most up-to-date research and effective physiotherapy treatment techniques into every aspect of my work. As a result, I can help you get your best possible results in a way that is safe and effective, and that minimizes your risk of re-injury.
