Testimonial:
I went to consult Mark about 3 months after breaking my elbow. Despite the bone knitting and determinedly doing all the exercises given to me by the hospital, movement was incredibly restricted and I was also having pain in my shoulder. Mark found that the injury plus subsequent attempts to use the arm had resulted in problems from my wrist to shoulder. Working sometimes with the help of a colleague and using manipulation, massage and needles, my mobility was gradually restored. When I first saw Mark I had almost given up the possibility of getting back to normal without surgery. I am enormously grateful for the treatment I received and for Mark’s determination to find a solution to what was a complex problem. I would without hesitation recommend the service I received.

Bio:

Hi, I’m Mark and I joined the Vanbrugh Team in 2012. Growing up I played a lot of sports, mainly football, all the way through school and so I had to see a Physio a couple of times for minor injuries. This sparked my interest as I realised there was a way I could combine my love of being active with helping people. The parents of one of my friends were both Physio’s and so I got to learn more about it and decided it was the career for me. I’m glad I did!

I’ve developed a strong interest in how the body works as a whole, rather than looking at individual parts. This started a 4 year process of taking ConnectTherapy™ courses which culminated with studying in Vancouver to become a fully Certified ConnectTherapy Practitioner in 2018. I am now part of a growing network of physiotherapists worldwide to have this qualification.

Being a good physio is much more than just the technical aspect of the job. Understanding exactly why people are coming is so important. Listening to the patient to clearly understand why they need my help and what they want to achieve from seeing me. I like to be a hands on Physio but also have a strong knowledge of exercise prescription.

Away from work, I like going out for dinners with my wife, keeping fit and trying to prolong my football career, catching up with friends at the pub and watching whatever sport is on the tv.

An interesting fact about you no one would know (until now):
I spent my secondary school years on the Channel Island of Guernsey as our family lived there for a while.
