    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    Commonly they will present with pain and dysfunction affecting one particular body part or multiple sites. The patients problem may be related to a certain activity or movement, pain in the knee after running for example. Patients can also present with pain related to more static positions, i.e. pain in the back after a long day sitting at the desk. They may talk about different symptoms depending on what the problem or injury is. Patients may report problems with painful clicking or noisy joints. They may describe things like pins and needles, numbness, weakness or tightness. This is all key information we will look to get form a patient to gain a better understanding of potential structures involved.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    The majority of my treatment will be gym-based exercise therapy or guided rehabilitation from the point of injury up to return to previous level of function. Alongside this I use soft tissue manipulation, and joint mobilisation and Acupuncture to help manage pain in the early stages. Education is another key treatment tool used to improve understanding of the injury and the healing process. Looking at the patients routine and modifying their activities can also to help to prevent recurrence or reduce risk of future injury.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    I enjoy treating injuries associated with the lower limb and lumbar spine, but my main area of interest would be around the knee and the foot and ankle, some will be preparing or recovering from surgery and some will be treated conservatively. The majority of patients I see will have sustained an injury whilst playing sport or running. I see a lot of foot and ankle tendon issues, ankle sprains and calf problems, and have good links with foot and ankle specialist surgeons who can be invaluable in the management of some of my patients. Aside from this, I also treat a lot of problems around the knee. The common diagnosis would be Patella Femoral Pain (PFP), or cartilage and ligament injuries. Knee’s respond really well to physiotherapy treatment but in the event some require surgery we see patients both pre and post operatively.
