Special interests

I am passionate about optimising the non-operative treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. I assess and treat a variety of sport, exercise and musculoskeletal problems. During the consultation, if appropriate, I will perform a targeted complaint-driven ultrasound. I also perform ultrasound-guided as well as unguided injections. I treat difficult tendon problems with therapies such as dry needling, autologous blood injections, PRP injections, hyaluronic acid injections and high volume injections and extracorporeal shockwave therapy. I also perform prolotherapy injections in peripheral joints (not spinal injections) for specific conditions.

Other interests

In my private practice, I have introduced PRP injections into my practice in October 2018 after evaluating the effectiveness of the treatment and having undertaken accredited training in Munich. I now teach ultrasound guided PRP injection techniques in Munich. I am also currently evaluating other regenerative medicine techniques.

From an educational perspective, I teach and also lead courses on FA accredited pitch side courses on advanced trauma and medical management. I am a tutor at the AECC University College Bournemouth, teaching musculoskeletal ultrasound. I sit on the National Training Advisory Committee, the SAC, for Sport and Exercise Medicine and have previously been lead for training locally in the East Midlands.

Personal interests

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and four children. I also enjoy participating in sport, playing golf and cricket. I take a keen interest in cultural and social issues and I am actively involved in the community.
