I am a keen participant in circus acrobatics and dance amongst other sports. In fact my whole identity is tied up in my ability to be able to move my body in beautiful ways; I am also someone who loves technical challenges in my disciplines and driving myself to new heights. At the beginning of 2015 I suffered a SLAP lesion level 2 in my left shoulder which required surgery. I read up about this condition and through this background reading and conversations with my surgeon it became clear that risks of stiffness to 40+ patients were increased post-surgery. I was referred to Andrew by my brother, a former international rugby player, and Loughborough-trained Sports Scientist, for rehabilitation pre and post surgery. Going to Andrew has been quite simply one of the best opportunities of my life. Andrew has worked tirelessly and creatively to ensure I very rapidly returned to full mobility in my shoulder; to the amazement of my surgeon, this was achieved only 3 months after surgery. He completely understands and empathises with my stretching physical goals, whilst providing sensible counsel on how to achieve them. He also identified postural corrections for my back that would optimise my performance in the physically demanding disciplines I enjoy in circus, and minimise load on joints. Not only that, but he is an absolute pleasure to work with and I can honestly say his approach has made rehab, which was very tough for me psychologically, an enjoyable and enlightening experience. I will continue to work with Andrew in the future as I return to my sports and strive for greater achievement. I highly recommend Andrew to anyone in need of expert physio support, and for ongoing advice to maximise their performance and approach to life.
