Adam Meakins, Clinical Lead Physiotherapist at Perform London for Spire Bushey Hospital
Adam Meakins is a highly specialised physiotherapist within the field of sports injury, with a particular interest in the shoulder joint that has developed through six years of working closely with Mr Lambert. Adam is the Clinical Lead for Perform London, part of Spire Healthcare/Spire Bushey Hospital’s elite sports medicine and physiotherapy service. Adam has over ten years’ experience as a physiotherapist. Adam also has extensive postgraduate training.
Adam recently worked as first team physiotherapist for Watford Football Club for three years, and still consults regularly for Premiership and Championship football and rugby clubs on complex shoulder and upper limb injuries. Combined with his background as a qualified strength and conditioning coach and experience as a personal trainer, Adam is well suited and used to treating all types of sporting injury. As a keen sportsman himself and with his experience of working with both professional and amateur athletes, Adam fully understands their passion and need for a speedy return to full fitness after an injury as well as their desire to stay at the top of their game and remain in peak physical performance.
Adam uses an extended range of treatment and diagnostic tools not regularly used by most physios to fully understand and restore many musculo-skeletal conditions, including diagnostic ultrasound scanning, Cybex isokinetic strength testing, force plates to assess gait and foot strike patterns, and slow motion video capture to fully assess movement.
Adam’s passion is the prevention of injury in sports. He is determined to succeed in his ambition to increase awareness and make available to all evidence-based sport injury prevention strategies used by many elite professional sports teams. Adam is also passionate about the use of evidence-based practice in rehab, and educating therapists and patients alike on all things physio-related. He regularly speaks and lectures at local and national events on shoulder therapy and also hosts his own blog (www.thesportsphysio.wordpress.com) for which he regularly posts educational topics.
