MSc BSc (Hons) MCSP HCPC
qualified with a degree in Sports Science (Human Performance) from Brunel
University. He then undertook his Masters in Physiotherapy also at Brunel. Since
graduating, Peter has worked both at the Royal Free Hospital NHS Trust London
and privately in Musculoskeletal Outpatients, Orthopaedics and Rheumatology. He
currently is a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist within the NHS and
the private sector.
As a physiotherapist, Peter treats all areas of the body and has additional training in the treatment of lower back pain, shoulder pain, manual therapy, dynamic taping and strength and conditioning. As an individual who has suffered numerous injuries and surgeries, Peter understands the importance to a holistic tailored approach during rehabilitation. He considers the body as a whole rather than restricting the body to individual parts. This approach leads to consideration of the vast array of factors that can contribute to the development of pain and injury.
He uses his spare time to attend evening lectures and weekend courses to further develop his skills as an evidenced based clinician to provide high quality care. When he isn’t studying or working, Peter enjoys keeping fit at the gym and trying as many new sports as possible (one of those that is like a duck to water when it comes to new sports!). If you can’t find him working out somewhere, he is usually out exploring London or watching some kind of sporting event with a beer in hand!
