Clinical Experience;
Three years initial NHS experience, before specialising in private practice musculoskeletal physiotherapy since 2012.

My Role As A Physiotherapist;
To educate, treat, & empower my patients, and to challenge them to make their health a priority in their daily lives. Understanding the details of an injury or reasons for pain is paramount in the recovery process, as is ones ability to manage their pain and symptoms. Ultimately, I strive to ensure people can live their daily lives fully, unrestricted by pain or physical limitation.

Clinical Special Interests;
Pain science, chronic lower back pain, shoulder injuries, challenging patient perceptions of pain and formulating pain management strategies. My own interest in gym training also gives me the tools to better discuss topics such as gym based rehabilitation, weight training technique, & training programme design with patients struggling to train due to injury, or those who I encourage to get into the gym to encourage recovery and regaining of lost physical resilience.

Advice Most Commonly Given To Patients;
1) The body is resilient, don’t be afraid to load and challenge it within your symptom tolerance

2) Vary the type of exercise you undertake, to gain a more rounded level of physical resilience

3) Pain isn’t always something to be fearful of, & is often not actually a sign of true structural injury or damage. Pain simply needs to be understood and managed correctly. Pain keeps us safe!

Sporting Interests;
Gym training, football, tennis, skiing
