Why did you decide to become a physiotherapist?
I have always had a strong interest in the human body. I started seeing a Physiotherapist at the age of 5, when I broke my arm in the same area twice. I really liked my Physio and what he was able to do for me, and now I enjoy giving the same care to others.
What is your favourite area to treat?
The lower back; I had a bad back when I was a teenager that prevented me from playing sport and I become determined to fix it so I could get back to playing the sports that I loved. I can now pass on the exercise’s that worked for me, as well as all the knowledge I have gained over the years from both studying and treating.
I also really enjoy treating the ankle; The research on this area is incredibly interesting and I find this really helpful to use when working with my patients.
How do you apply your experience as a CrossFit coach to a Physio Exercise class?
My CrossFit teaching experience helps me to structure my classes in order to get the most out of a strength and fitness program. Pain really alters how people move and my training as a coach allows me to provide my clients with confidence to move more freely again.
How has working with HumanTrak changed the way you treat your patients?
Since joining PPFC I have been using HumanTrak regularly. You can see immediately using 3D technology any postural imbalance you may have. Once we have identified these – you are shown how to improve many of the exercises you are doing in thy gym. HumanTrak is invaluable in helping you overcome your injury.
