Professional profile

I am a sport physician and a member of the faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM) UK. I have over 15 years’ experience of treating people with acute and chronic sports and work related musculoskeletal injuries.

In my clinical work I use dynamic ultrasound to diagnose, assess and monitor injuries and allow for accurately ultra sound guided injections.

​I qualified from the University of Bristol as a medical doctor in 1996. After medical training I began my career as a GP, where my interest in musculoskeletal disorders and sport injuries led me to specialise further in Sports and Exercise Medicine with a master degree in Sports and Exercise Medicine from the University of Bath. I have been the Bath City Football Club Doctor since 2002, and have been providing medical cover to the local amateur athletic and boxing clubs and seeing safe MMA competitors.

My work has involved a wide range of input for elite athletes, professional and recreational performers including screening, health promotion and performance enhancement, illness and injury prevention, diagnosis and management of injuries through to return to full fitness.

Alongside Sports medicine and medical activities, I have a PhD in Biochemistry from University of Bath with three years post-doctoral research in molecular genetics. I have an interest in the genetics and biochemistry of fitness and physical performance with particular reference to nutrigenomics and epigenetics.
