I am based in Kelso, in the Scottish Borders and practice from my own clinic situated just a few minutes from the town centre.

It was during my many months of rehabilitation following a serious knee injury and major surgery that I first took an interest in injury rehabilitation. I was struck by the level of professionalism, commitment and encouragement shown by the practitioners that oversaw my rehabilitation. Like those that showed that professionalism, commitment and encouragement to me, I take the same approach with all my patients.

Each treatment and rehabilitation program is specific to the individual and developed to help them return to full fitness as quickly and safely as possible.
