Job Title: Doctor
Nigel trained at the Pinderfields School of Physiotherapy and graduated in 1990.
He worked in the NHS for three years before starting in private practice at the Physio Therapy Centre.
Nigel enjoys outpatient physiotherapy, employing mobilisation, manipulation, soft tissue techniques and home exercises as his main treatment modalities.
As with the other physiotherapists here, many of Nigel’s patients have problems associated with their spines. Nigel is experienced in helping to restore normal movement with these and other issues.
Nigel is certain of the need for rehabilitation, where the patient continues with specific home exercises and frequently refers on to rehabilitation/clinical pilates courses.
Ultimately Nigel, along with the other therapists at this centre, believes in maximum self reliance of the patient and tries, whenever possible, to give the patient the necessary tools to be able to help themselves and prevent re-occurrence of problems.
Nigel is an active sportsman, still participating regularly in five-a-side football, tennis, swimming and jogging. He has three children and lives in Hove.
Continual professional development is an on-going policy of this practice and Nigel is involved heavily in this as a course organiser, presenter and participant.
Nigel regularly attends external courses covering a wide range of subjects associated with the musculo-skeletal system.
