About me

Gethin graduated from Cardiff's University of Wales College of Medicine with a BSc Hons degree in Physiotherapy in 2005. He has worked predominantly in the field of musculoskeletal physiotherapy and sports medicine. He completed 8 happy years in the NHS reaching the post of Extended Scope Practitioner (ESP). This role involved assessing and treating patients on an orthopaedic consultant waiting list as well setting up an Acute Knee Injury Clinic. The post involved requesting imaging such as X-rays and MRI scans as well as managing joint and soft tissue injuries with injection therapy having gained a Masters level qualification from the University of Nottingham.

Gethin's commitment to continued professional development is reflected in a number of post graduate courses and gaining a PgDip in Advanced Manipulative Physiotherapy from the University of Birmingham. He is currently completing his masters dissertation towards his MSc working in conjunction with the English Institute of Sport (EIS). This post graduate qualification provided accreditation to the Musculoskeletal association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP).

Apart from a successful career in the NHS Gethin has worked extensively in sports injury private practices in Cardiff and South Wales.
