Phil | Owner & Physiotherapist

AKA: Superhero

I love what I do because it’s so rewarding to see patients leave the clinic a happier and healthier version of themselves, especially when they had previously resigned themselves to a life of pain.

I am passionate about supporting patients to alleviate their pain, stay healthy, mobile, active AND maintain independence and mobility. 

I am great at what I do because I care about my patients’ outcome. 

Away from the clinic, I’m..

– keeping fit and you can find me in the gym most days
– spending time with my gorgeous family
– always developing myself both personally and professionally

An interesting fact about me is..

I used to be a good rugby player, I’ve never broken a bone and I am probably the most inflexible man you have ever met!

I qualified in 2008 with an MSc in Physiotherapy from the University of Birmingham and a BSc (Hons) in Sports Rehabilitation from St Marys College in 2006. I am also a qualified Independent Prescriber and qualified in joint injection.

I have spent over 10 years working at Loughborough University Physiotherapy clinic treating elite athletes of all sports, as well as being the lead physiotherapist for the Loughborough students 1st XV rugby team and the clinical lead Physiotherapist for the University clinic.

I have also been involved with the GB Bobsleigh, GB Judo squad and Leicestershire County Cricket Club and I am currently the head Physiotherapist at Solihull School. More recently I worked with gymnastics at the Commonwealth Games held in Birmingham in 2022. I also write regular articles for newspaper columnist including The Times, Birmingham Living and many more.

Don’t suffer pain unnecessarily. Go and see Phil!

Phil has been patching me up for the last few years after I continually ask my body to perform at my mental age, not my physical one!
