Frequently asked questions
What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?
I predominantly treat spinal injuries – neck, thoracic spine and lumbar spine injuries. It can be an acute/sudden onset of pain or long-term/chronic injuries. The other area that I particularly like to work with is sporting injuries, particularly running injuries. This may be an acute onset of any lower limb injuries – knees, ankles and hips – and also chronic/long-term sporting injuries.
What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?
Initially, it may be manual therapy, which includes soft tissue massage, mobilisations, acupuncture, etc. I generally like to progress into strengthening or exercise-based rehab program. I am trained in Pilates. Depending on the issue, it will probably involve some Pilates rehab as part of that. If not, then I look at gym-based rehab and slowly build people back up into or return to normal daily living or sport.
What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?
I have a history of working with spinal pain, having worked in New Zealand with a company called the Back Institute, which was predominantly neck and spinal issues and looking at getting people back into working, getting back into sport again. I incorporate Pilates and acupuncture into that. Other area is then sporting injuries. I have a bit of a sporting background in hockey, cricket and athletics. I'm a bit of a keen runner myself. Generally, running injuries, knee injuries, but also postop injuries as well like, for example, postop ACL rehab.
