James is a graduate from Cardiff University in 2009. Having worked in the NHS and privately, he specialises in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and is now based solely at Shepherds’ Health.  He offers assessment and treatment for a wide range of conditions with a particular interest in shoulder, back and lower limb rehabilitation.

He has worked at Shepherds’ Health since 2016 and has recently left the NHS to pursue his career as a private practitioner allowing him to focus on sports rehabilitation. During his time working in Australia, James completed a number of courses including a shoulder course by specialist Craig Allingham, advanced hip rehabilitation by leading Orthopaedic consultant, Phong Tran, as well as becoming qualified in Dry Needling, trained by expert Jorgen Forsberg. This western alternative to acupuncture is particularly effective in correcting muscle tension, a common cause of pain.

James is also the lead physiotherapist in our Running Lab where he works with runners of all abilities providing in-depth assessments to promote injury avoidance and recovery from injury. These assessments provide our clients with an analysis of flexibility, strength and running gait as well as carrying out diagnostic tests ensuring you will get the best results from your training programme.

As a post-graduate, James practiced as a junior therapist at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospital developing skills in a variety of areas ranging from Cardiothoracic to Trauma Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal physiotherapy.

After completing his rotations James’ ventured down under to work in a private clinic called Physio Freedom in Hamilton, Victoria. Here he honed his skills working with sports injuries from football to surfing, helping athletes return to activity. Management of back pain also became an interest and specialty having been particularly prevalent in this farming community. On returning to the UK James had a stint in Respiratory Physiotherapy, before becoming a Senior Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist at Herts and Essex Hospital for a number of years.
