Career to date
Stuart graduated in Sports Therapy in 1999 and through working with some of the UKs leading sports physios in Surrey and London became inspired to study Physio. He graduated in Physio in 2005, completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Sports Medicine in 2010 and is currently working toward his PhD. Stuart’s reputation for excellence and professionalism has earned him excellent relationships with leading orthopedic consultants and physicians. Stuart is currently working together with these specialists to develop new protocols for pre and post operative rehabilitation and treatment.
Stuart has always split his time between the private clinic and professional sport. He worked part time at Chelsea FC from 2008-12 as well as with leading GB, Australian and European Tennis players at tournaments including Wimbledon and The French Open. He still consults regularly for professional musicians, racing drivers and other athletes.
Stuart has written for many health and fitness magazines over the years such as Women’s Fitness and Men’s Running and has just contributed several chapters to the fitness book ‘Run Yourself Fit’, released in 2016. His goals are to bring the same level of care professional athletes obtain to his patients in private practice.
