Chris has been successfully treating spinal pain for many years, working with people who have had discectomies (disc protrusion leading to surgery), problems with trapped nerves, sciatica and spinal instability. Many of his clients are able to avoid surgery thanks to his carefully considered, detailed spinal treatment and rehabilitation.

Chris has worked with Mr Martin Knight of The Spinal Foundation for more than ten years. He is part of a specialist team that includes Martin Knight, Consultant Anaesthetics and Pain Management Specialist, Mark Miller, and other professionals such as Clinical Psychologists. One of their main aims is to deliver detailed movement and functional analysis and deal with problems that may be causing pain and dysfunction. This is supported by a successful programme of integrated care and rehabilitation.

A physiotherapy consultation with Chris for a spinal condition usually lasts 60 minutes. It will involve a detailed assessment of the individualís movement patterns, muscle recruitment and muscle imbalances, followed by a suggested pathway of treatment that may include a combination of manual therapy, joint mobilisation and manipulation, soft tissue release, including myofascial release, trigger point work, both Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Intra-Muscular Stimulation (IMS), Laser and Ultrasound. These are all integrated with a detailed exercise rehabilitation programme which will help the individual regain function and ultimately a return to their normal life pattern or sport.

The same physiotherapy consultation will take place for all other musculo-skeletal conditions and sports injuries. Follow-on treatment is for 30 or 60 minutes, depending on the complexity of the condition and individual requirements. All consultations are carried out in liaison with the consulting spinal or sports specialist.

Chris is undoubtedly the best Physio I have ever dealt with. I couldnít speak more highly of him during my time as a professional rugby player at London Irish. His knowledge and the way he dealt with things was second to none. He was a man you would respect, trust and had strong leadership qualities. I would have no reservations whatsoever in recommending Chris and his team.
