Steven Bannister Physiotherapist About

Steven Bannister


How can I help you improve your health?

I have developed a wealth of knowledge and experience in the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal pathologies, together with a special interest in Sports Injuries following a ‘Sports and Exercise MSc’ in 2017. I also have experience in treating paediatric patients with musculoskeletal injuries and presentations.

I understand that each person is unique and therefore incorporate a holistic approach to therapy, recognising and correcting ‘faulty’ movement patterns through manual and exercise based treatment interventions. I also have a deep knowledge of pain physiology and as such am able to educate and reassure that many of the symptoms we find troubling are actually to be valued as a useful response to ‘injury’ and a sign that our bodies are working to help us heal and repair.
