I play a significant role in the care of Olympic and other elite athletes across a wide spectrum, as indicated above.
I have a special expertise in the management of sporting and non-sporting musculoskeletal injuries and chronic pain syndromes. I also have a specialist interest in arthritis and in exercise medicine. I use advanced diagnostic techniques and in particular imaging and biomechanical assessments in evaluation of medical complaints. I utilise therapies including various injection therapies, extracorporeal shock wave therapy and forms of exercise and rehabilitation in managing problems.
I also have a background in exercise physiology and have an exercise prescription clinic for the development of customised exercise and / or training programmes to suit all types of individuals – from the sedentary to the fit athlete. I work with a team of people who form a multidisciplinary team that is focused in delivering the highest standards of care to patients.
