Chris graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2010 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Physiotherapy, and he joined the team at Yorkshire Neuro Physiotherapy in 2016. In the six years since qualifying, Chris has gained significant experience across a variety of different clinical areas within the NHS and specifically within Neurology and Stroke Physiotherapy. Chris has worked within three different NHS trusts and continues currently with this work in a Senior NHS role, alongside his private work with our team.
His experience covers a broad range of neurological conditions and presentations. Chris is a proactive therapist who is keen on developing therapy approaches. Most recently, within his current NHS role, he introduced the use of hydrotherapy for stroke patients, a form of rehabilitation that he is passionate about. Whether treating a client in hospital, in clinic or at their own home, Chris feels comfortable to adapt his treatment approach for any setting.
Always ready to expand his knowledge, Chris has undertaken post-graduate training in specialist techniques specific to his area of practice, including the Introductory Bobath course and other courses relating to the management of ataxia, high and low tone, pushing and neglect with stroke clients. Keen to always leave a positive impact, Chris enjoys spending time with the family of his clients and ensuring that he fully understands his client's goals, so that he may tailor his treatment accordingly.
Outside of work, Chris enjoys CrossFit, running, drinking coffee with his wife, and being taken for a walk by his boisterous black labrador. If any of Chris' patients have a dog, he sees that as a bonus!
