I’m a Sports Rehabilitation Graduate with a wealth of experience of working with all types of patients ranging from professional athletes to weekend warriors and from the “good weather” gardener to the office professional.
Regardless of your profession I help people who have low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain etc and help them transition back to pain free function, be that just carrying out activities around the house or at work, or more demanding activities and hobbies.
I do my best to help my patients understand their problem and the rehabilitation journey itself. I aim to empower my patients with education, as well as offer treatments like shockwave, manual therapy and exercise to help reduce pain levels and restore function quicker.
Currently I'm working at Nottingham Physio and Nottingham Trent University Sports Injury Clinic. Previously I've been working at Notts County Football Club and within the NHS in musculoskeletal outpatient clinic.
In summer 2018 and 2019 I travelled to Thailand and worked as a lead clinician providing medical care for England Seniors Squad during Seniors Football World Cup.
