About Me

Hi I’m Chris. Full time physio and part time cyclist.  I’ve been involved with movement all of my personal and professional life.

My Story

My Story

My interest in human performance, took me to study Sport and Exercise Science at The University of Exeter.   It was a great degree with a combination biology, physiology, psychology and biomechanics.   I followed this with a Physiotherapy Degree at Cardiff University.   The course and my subsequent junior positions in Cardiff and Bath, provided a diverse experience.  From Neurorehabilitation, clients with head injuries and progressive neurological conditions,  Respiratory patients, in intensive care and the community, ward based work,  trauma and orthopaedics, pre and post-operation, musculoskeletal departments, and fracture clinics.   All of which provided valuable experiences.  The common thread of understanding the issue,  communicating, and setting effective treatment plans to fit the individual circumstances.

Jump forwards a few years, and a few courses later.  I was then attracted to London by a progressive private practice that was taking on a new team of physios on a training Musculosketal post.   10 of us started and spent 2 years together with a strong educational component, fast-tracking my development in this side of work.  It was here that I first experienced Clinical Pilates.    This experience enabled me to take on a post in busy sports and medical clinic in Australia.  

I returned to London to work in Broadgate, attracted by a previous clinical educator, and the multidisciplinary team.   Alongside my work here Elinor and I begun Movement Perfected.   Starting the company in 3 Spanish Place.   It has been a rewarding experience, and we have met and worked alongside many many interesting people, if you are one of these people or have been involved in my story so far thank you.

My Approach

Open, scientific, and practical.   Open in that I listen to your story, as within it is the key to our success.   Scientific, the science/research validates the best techniques to help you achieve your goals and the steps that need to be taken.   Practical, it needs to fit you.   

Session Structure 

In the beginning, I will take a full medical and social history, to pull together all the factors that contribute to your question whether that question is;  back pain, sports performance,  pathology or another.
I have a broad base of experience and use this to pull together a plan for you.   I provide good follow-up materials including videos and instructions to help ensure a full understanding. 

My Collegues

It is a pleasure to work with all of them, and they help me help my clients.   All of them have excellent clinical backgrounds and experience.  As a team we share research, skills and this last year more that ever has made me realise how important a strong team is.
