I’m a Yorkshire lad, born in Bradford and spent most of my school years in Leeds. I have helped out in the family Newsagents, which has kept me physically active and prepared me for the world of work. I enjoy having a chat with the locals daily, and try my best get involved in community activities.
Through my school years, I’ve always had a great interest into the functions and the coping mechanisms of the human body, post injury, therefore I chose to pursue a career in Physiotherapy. I completed a course in Health Related Exercise and Fitness at Leeds Metropolitan University, and then went on to qualify as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 2011 at Manchester Metropolitan University.
Since then I have gained experience treating patients with Musculoskeletal, Respiratory and Neurological conditions at Bradford Teaching Hospitals. Moving on from here, I worked for Sano Physiotherapy acquiring the majority of my experience treating neck, back, shoulder, knee and sports injuries. Currently I am working for Physiofusion based in Skipton. I have a real interest in ‘hands on’ therapy such as trigger point release and joint mobilizations. I use these where appropriate during treatment sessions. I spend time with patients, to provide informed advice on changes that can be made with daily activities to assist with their treatment.
Outside work, I am a very competitive and keen sports man when behind the controls of the PS3, playing Fifa. I hate to lose and always blame the players when my controls go wrong. I enjoy watching stand up comedy, listening to music and adore a good cup of tea. I regularly socialise with friends and family with a meal or a few drinks, and like to get my all my joints moving with a good dance.
