Ask me about it..

My approach to sports medicine has been uniquely shaped by my personal journey through the world of orthopedic surgery, osteopathic medicine and sports science. With my sights set on becoming a great sports doctor, I found that the tools I needed were very different from the experience I had gained as a surgeon. Over the years, I have developed my own approach to sports medicine, based on the principles of osteopathic medicine and the benefits of manual treatment. I am deeply committed to this way of working, and the opportunities it offers me to successfully treat complex overuse issues in athletes and dancers.

I focus on the diagnosis and treatment of myofascial dysfunction, relating to the muscles and the fascia – their connective tissue. This approach targets muscles that are not working properly due to false innervation, and the resulting muscle imbalance. Myofascial dysfunction is often caused by overtraining and insufficient rest, and can therefore afflict many hard-working athletes and dancers in their pursuit of excellence.

When it comes to treating the complex problems caused by overuse, my secret weapon is deep myofascial release treatment. This is my adaptation of more traditional myofascial release treatment, but suited to the particularities of treating the highly trained bodies of athletes and dancers. I have found this approach to deliver fast and crucially sustainable results. It can be applied just minutes before a competition or performance, often providing instant relief, and allowing my patients to perform at the highest level.

I am currently looking forward to supporting and treating some of the world’s leading athletes at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. I know what the Games mean to the athletes who take part, and how hard they will all be training. My vision is to help every one of my patients to perform at their very best, despite any issues or concerns they may be struggling with.
