My Story

At the age of 13, I wanted to be a physiotherapist. Why? Because I wanted to help people who like me, weren’t getting the help they deserved. I played a lot of sports and unfortunately sustained many injuries. Although this was difficult, these experiences have given me an understanding of what it’s like to have pain which allows me to connect with my patients even more.

Although I am a physiotherapist, my background is in strength and conditioning. My undergraduate degree was in Sport and Exercise Science and I graduated in 2015 from University of Limerick, Ireland. Here, I spent the 2014 season with The Chiefs Super Rugby Franchise who had previously won back-to-back Super Rugby Titles. My role here was as a strength and conditioning coach working mostly with rehabilitating injured athletes. I was lucky enough to learn from some of the best strength and conditioning coaches in rugby while at the Chiefs who had a number of players in the All-Blacks squad. I also worked with New Zealand Rowing Academy where I designed the development S&C programs in preparation for their next Olympic cycle. I was always fascinated with both the psychological and physical rehabilitation following an injury which spurred my interest in studying Physiotherapy.

I then received my Masters in Physiotherapy in 2016 at the University of Brighton, England. Here I did a number of placements in hospital across the south of England. I also worked with the London Irish Rugby Men’s first team as a student physiotherapist. I’m now a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist in London’s largest NHS trust, St. Bart’s.

Outside of the NHS, I work for Arsenal Academy Football Club and London Irish Rugby Academy. I have also worked with Saracen’s Rugby Women’s First Team as match day physiotherapist. I’m also currently publishing an article delving into the experiences of professional rugby players experience of injury.

Due to my background in strength and conditioning and experience with various teams, I feel I can help athletes and the general public not only recover from injuries but return fitter, stronger and healthier.

Why did I make this website?

My aim is to provide evidence based physiotherapy online. The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us that physiotherapy can be just as effective (and safer) than face to face appointments. Within the physiotherapy package, I will be providing rehabilitation, prehabilitation, exercise prescription, education and life style advice to help you achieve your goals. My aim is to provide you with the skills and tools so you can help yourself and make a long-term change.

I’d love to hear your story and what brought you here. Please click here get in touch.

Speak Soon,

Luke
