I am a sports physician, specializing in athletics, football and performing arts medicine. I run my medical practice from a sports clinic in Switzerland, as well as working on site at national and international sporting events, and with two professional ballet companies.

My greatest experience in international sports (so far!) has been the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, where I had the honor of being part of the medical team for the Olympic stadium, supporting both football and athletics competitions as a Field of Play team member.

I have developed my own holistic 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 and trauma in athletes and dancers.

Sports medicine tends to be fragmented into ever-increasing sub-specialisms, with the unfortunate consequence that the “big picture” is often lost as diagnosis and treatment are focused on isolated problems. However, the body is one interconnected whole so treating pain or symptoms in isolation is, in my view, counter-intuitive. From my experience, it is essential to seek out the underlying causes of an issue in order to achieve the optimum results from treatment.

My vision is to pursue and promote a greater understanding of how muscle dysbalance and joint dysfunction influence the athlete’s body and how these complex interactions can be successfully addressed.

I have recently launched a blog that deals with the common problems experienced by dancers, and am currently working on more educational material to address a wider audience. Please contact me if you are interested in sharing your ideas or would like my advice as a sports doctor.
