About me

I am the son of a chartered physiotherapist, I qualified as an osteopath 13 years ago, since then I have broadened my training and experience having completed post graduate training courses with the British Medical Acupuncture Society and the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute. I regularly sit in with and attend regular courses given by consultant musculosketeal radiologists from the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, in particular Dr Sajid Butt who is a trusted colleague of mine and whom I often discuss cases with. I know and work in liason with several spinal surgeons and often observe them in the operating theatre. Since graduation I have co-founded a company, (trading name Spine Plus Clinics) that features a multidisciplinary team of therapists (Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, and other remedial therapists) specialising in the treatment of back and neck pain conditions as well as offering mechanical back/neck pain consultancy advising clients on secondary diagnostic and management referral and pathways (e.g. appropriate imaging techniques. such as functional MRI scanning, CT SPECT Scanning etc, referral for injections and recommendation to a variety of spinal surgeons who specialise in different areas of spinal surgery).
