After graduating in 2016, James has been working in the NHS and in private practice developing his skills in musculoskeletal outpatients, orthopaedics and sports injuries. He arrives with a strong reputation of having a patient-centred and evidence-based approach. He takes pride in his work and applies the same levels of performance and discipline to all aspects of his life, serving as the captain of his Northern Alliance football team and competing in various endurance events.
After growing up in Herefordshire, he moved to Newcastle upon Tyne to study physiotherapy at Northumbria University. Opting for a career in physiotherapy was underlined by a desire to help others fulfil their potential in everyday life and for both recreational and professional athletes.
His particular interest is in post-operative rehabilitation for all ages, as well as football and triathlon related injuries, providing treatment for many athletes based in the North East. As a former county footballer and national swimmer, James has an excellent understanding of how to help athletes meet their performance goals. A combination of exercise, manual therapy, injury management and injury prevention strategies help patients meet their targets.
He has a passion for continual professional development and has studied at postgraduate level, gaining qualifications in acupuncture, sports massage and cognitive behavioural therapy.
James is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.
