I’m a strong believer in getting people more active and back to the things they enjoy. I give patients exercise, lifestyle and nutrition advice to follow when not in the Clinic to maximise recovery.
From weekend warrior to professional players, I have lots of experience with sports injuries at all levels. I’m also a fully qualified personal trainer giving me a unique perspective on how lifestyle can impact pain and recovery. This combined approach allows me to put together detailed and bespoke treatment plans from a holistic perspective. This may include advice on stretching, exercise and nutrition to help enhance the results from treatments.
Having suffered a back injury myself, I am very empathetic. The successful treatment and rehab from this prompted me to change careers so ! can help other people in similar situations.
I have a passion for helping people and learning new skills to do so. Having completed my first course locally at Barnfield College, I have gone on to lots of further study. My special interest is in exercise rehabilitation for a wide range of conditions, helping people recover and get stronger.
When not at work, I like to keep fit and competes at powerlifting, which is a form of weightlifting.
