Tell us about your background in physiotherapy:

After graduating with a BSc in Sports Science, I started as a personal trainer back in 2013. During this I came across a lot of frustrated clients that were not able to do the things they wanted due to nagging injuries and or movement deficits. This led me to pursue further training in exercise physiology and physiotherapy.
I completed a MSc in Sport and Exercise Physiology from the UK, which opened the doors to working with a number of high performance athletes.  Specifically, in the capacity of a strength and conditioning coach for Hong Kong’s men’s national cricket team and Hong Kong elite women’s lacrosse team, and the National Age Grade Development program of Hong Kong Rugby Union.  Having covered desk jockeys and weekend warriors to elite athletes, I decided to cover the clinical population to provide a one stop solution from injury to performance and hence pursued a Master in Physiotherapy.
After the above education and variety of experiences I'd like to think that I have a good understanding of the complexities of movement and multi-factorial contribution to injuries and pain and as such follow personalized exercise and hands-on approach that is evidence-based, and targeted at treating the underlying cause of conditions rather than symptoms alone.

What are your interests?

Anything to do with exercise physiology and human performance. I personally enjoy strength training and watching motorsports, especially Formula 1.

Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on.

Moving from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong, to a quiet countryside town in Wales to study. Met a lot of nice people from around the world and shared a number of life changing experiences.

What is your area of expertise?

Having a background in personal training and strength and conditioning, I use biomechanics for a functional approach towards assessments to identify the underlying cause of the conditions and functional or structural deficits.  This is coupled together with a thorough subjective assessment to identify lifestyle factors that may be contributing to the condition. Based on the findings I mainly use exercise or hands-on (manual therapy) to restore pain free movement. I especially enjoy the challenges of nagging chronic pain that don't seem to go away.

What is the most fulfilling part of this job?

Adding value to peoples' lives. Seeing clients feeling better and being able to do the things they love in a pain free and more efficient manner than they started with.
