Physiotherapist and Clinical Manager
Andrew has worked as physiotherapist for more than 12 years and has been focussed on Musculoskeletal disorders for the last 9 years. He has developed an interest in knee injuries and specifically ACL rehabilitation and improving outcomes in those that opt for surgical or conservative management. Andrew initially graduated the University of Essex with a BSc in Sport and Exercise Science before completing an MSc in Physiotherapy and beginning work in the NHS. Since graduating Andrew has worked in the NHS, sport and private MSK which is where he now manages a busy London based clinic alongside his clinical diary.
Over the last year Andrew has sought out more opportunities to teach specifically on knee injuries and managing ACL injuries and has been involved in Therapy Expo, the Surrey knee symposium and has hosted a number of webinars for Ossur alongside esteemed colleagues.
Andrew rehabilitates anything between 25-35 ACL patients a year with a mix of elite to recreational athletes. These include conservatively managed isolated ACL injuries to patients who have suffered complex multi-ligament injuries and had reconstruction surgery. Andrew believes firmly in criteria led rehabilitation and embrace testing protocols for physical and psychological components of the patient journey.
