I started life as a Sports Therapist with Queens Park Rangers FC in 2001 after completing a BSc (Hons) degree in Sports Therapy. My interest in injury and rehabilitation grew and in 2006 I achieved a 2:1 BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy.
Since graduation I completed various rotations in the NHS including outpatients, trauma and rheumatology gaining broad rehabilitation experience. Whilst working full time, I continued to develop my sporting skills with Southampton FC, assessing and treating the elite academy players, enabling me to witness first-hand the pressures and types of injury sustained by young sporting professionals.
The desire to increase my knowledge in sports injuries led me to Cardiff University to gain a Masters in Sports Physiotherapy at distinction level. My thesis was on functional ankle instability in athletes, a specialist interest of mine. Having had my undergraduate dissertation on ‘Piriformis Syndrome’ published, am hoping this thesis follows suit.

Thank you for your original consultation last year regarding my knee, when you suspected I had a torn ACL. This was confirmed with an MRI last year and I am currently laid up at home having had my ACL reconstructed and meniscus repaired in surgery last week.
If it had not been for your advice then I would still be struggling on with a torn ACL and generally restricted knee. This would surely have given me a lot of trouble later on in life and stopped me being active, which I value very highly.
So, again, massive thanks and keep up the good work.
Fearing I would miss a major rugby tournament due to injury a friend recommended that I go and see if Peter could help.
From the outset I received a first rate friendly service with an immediate diagnosis, and a treatment plan specifically tailored to getting me back on the pitch ASAP.
I was really impressed that Peter seems to go the extra mile to cater for his clients and takes the time to explain the science of the injury and discuss cure and prevention as well as simple treatment. I also received an excellent follow up service including an exercise plan and a genuine interest in my progress which achieved the results I wanted.
I would thoroughly recommend Peter for his professional yet friendly approach.
