Tell us about your background in physiotherapy:
I completed my Physiotherapy degree at The University of Nottingham (UK), and immediately specialised in musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. I began my career in the NHS before moving onto the private sector, as well as working as one of the physiotherapists for a professional football team during their season in the British EFL Championship.
In 2018 I opened my first clinic in the UK, and expanded into a second in 2019. Within my clinics I had a special interest in treating work related injuries and spinal pain due to poor working postures. At the end of 2019, I relocated to Hong Kong to be with family, and join the Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy centre in 2020.
What are your interests?
I have been weight lifting at the gym for nearly 2 years, although I am no power lifter, it’s been a really cool discipline to learn. In my spare time I love hanging out and dining out with friends over a cocktail and a cool story to share the next day!
Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on.
A great experience for me was learning to open and run a business aged 26 with only £200 in my pocket. This experience made me quickly pick up how to maximise and optimise every opportunity and sparked my love for business and team management (crazy, I know!). Another physio related one would be aged 17 I broke my ankle and experienced, unfortunately, poor Physiotherapy for the first time, which has spurred me to never let any of my clients experience what I did.
What is your area of expertise?
I treat all musculoskeletal conditions but my special interest is in spinal pain, especially neck and lower back, as well as postural correction. I particularly enjoy “balancing” people back out when they are wonky and imbalanced. I also specialise in treating work related pain, and majority of my case load is filled by my office warriors!
What is the most fulfilling part of this job?
The most fulfilling part is firstly getting clients better, seeing them become pain free but most importantly is getting clients back into what they have had to stop doing due to their injuries. That always brings a smile to my face!
