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. I have completed the modular aspect of the course and I am currently finishing my thesis, on functional ankle instability in athletes, a specialist interest of mine. Having had my undergraduate dissertation on ‘Piriformis Syndrome’ published,
“Peter’s expert advice has been invaluable. Who knew that a lowly tennis ball could help manage a persistent injury so easily? It helps that he’s also a thoroughly nice chap. Thanks Pete.”
“Following on from a recurring back problem Peter helped enormously by talking through the problem, explaining where I was going wrong and actually related it to an ongoing health problem which made a lot of sense. Peter gave me exercises to do and to date everything is working as it should. I would recommend Peter very highly and he will always be my first port of call if I have any other problems.”
