My Interest in Physiotherapy

During my career as a professional footballer I developed a keen interest in physiotherapy and health, and when it was time to move on in my career, retraining in physiotherapy was a natural choice.

I graduated as a physiotherapist from Salford University and have since dedicated my time to helping others to become free from pain, and to remain active and healthy.

It's a real passion for me to help people of all ages and activity levels and from all walks of life. No matter who you are or what problem you're experiencing, I'm here to help!

My Experience

After qualifying as a physiotherapist I gained many years of experience working for one of the UK's biggest private healthcare providers.


Working first with many patients directly, I eventually became head of musculoskeletal services, overseeing the clinical and operational delivery of over half a million treatment sessions every year.


Throughout this time, I was fortunate to work with and develop from some of the top physiotherapists in their field, developing my skills and approach. I also developed a deep understanding of the wide range of reasons people consult a physiotherapist, the real importance of health and mobility and the feelings that accompany ill health or injury.

Wanting to work with more patients directly, I moved into private practice and opened my Cotgrave Physiotherapy Clinic. It is a joy to be able to bring the skills and experience I have acquired to treating my own patients, and helping people towards an active and pain-free life.

My Approach to Treatment

At the heart of what I do is to take a person-centred approach to physiotherapy treatment, ensuring that you are listened-to and involved at every stage of your treatment and that you have all the answers and information you need to help yourself on your journey back to full health.

I treat all patients regardless of age, exercise or activity level, and treat all conditions from everyday concerns to serious injury. I believe in taking a reassuring yet straightforward approach, and helping every single patient to live a healthy and pain-free life.
